Usage of Main transaction 0090 and its sub transactions


I understand that the main transaction 0090 is related to individual write-off items but would like to know when would be this main transaction used.

After setting up the write-off expense account in posting area 0120, the system uses this GL account for posting the below entries during the write-off via FP04.

Dr. Write-Off expense account

Cr. Debtors reconciliation account

So I would like to know in which scenario the system uses the main transaction 0090.

Also there is one more main transaction for mass write-offs - 0095.

    Hi Sakthi,

    Posting area 120 only sets up the Expense and the revenue account as per Cocd\Write-off reason\Division.

    The main-sub combination comes from the following SPRO path-

    IMG->Financial Accounting->Contract Accounts Receivable and Payable->Basic Functions->Postings and Documents->Document->Maintain Document Assignments->Maintain Transactions for IS-U->Maintain Transactions for Writing-Off

    So when you are performing a write-off through FP04, 0090 will be used, if you are using FP04M, 0095 will be used as per the standard SAP configuration.

    The main transctions for these write-off gets determined from the Write-off reasons from the following SPRO path-

    IMG->Financial Accounting->Contract Accounts Receivable and Payable->Business Transactions->Write-Offs->Define Write-Off Reasons

    Hope it helps...

    • Hi,

      Not sure if you solved this yet, but I believe it is used to determine the CO Account Assignments if you use Option 2 in the "Derivation of CO Account Assignments". This is in the configuration "Maintain Write-Offs - Specidifcations and default values".

      If you configure a CO Account Assignment for 0090/0010, it should use that CO Account Assignment during Write-off.
