Error Message: No G/L account is assigned to account symbol 1 / 5..3.3

All,

Appreciate your expertise on the above error message as per subject: No G/L account is assigned to account symbol 1 / 5.3.3

While posting securities - bond investment transaction via TBB1 (post flow), we got error messages for both Account Symbol 1 and 5.3.3

Steps taken, assuming it'll resolve the problem are:

1. We've defined a new Account Assignment Reference for Bond Investment - Held-to-maturity.

2. Then, at Account Assignment Reference Determination, we change the constant from the SAP standard to the new one created at Step 1.

3. After that, we've added in the Allocate Additional Account Assignments to Account Assignment Reference by Company Code.

4. Finally, we've defined Account Determination based on the new Account Assignment Reference.

Despite performing all of the above steps, we still receive the error message. Please help. Additionally, this is for our new Company Code.

Thanks!

    Additional Info:

    When we read from the long description of the error message, it points to the standard SAP Account Assignment Reference, instead of pointing to our new AAR.

      Hi,

      Even though you have created a new account assignment reference, it will take effect only after you create a new transaction. As for your error, check whether G/L account has been assigned for this account symbol in TRM -- General Settings -- Accounting -- Link to other accounting components. Assign G/L accounts. In this for your chart of accounts, check whether G/L account has been assigned for these account symbols and if not you can assign here. Also please elaborate more on why you want a new account assignment reference if the standard is going to meet your requirement.

      Regards,

      Ravi

    GL Account has been linked to those Account Symbol.

    To our mind, using the standard one is the best way, however, the user would like to have their own AAR and our previous consultant did that for the user. As for our implementation, Money Market transactions have been using additional AAR. So due to consistency, we created new AAR for Securities - Bond Investment.

    However, where exactly we can change the standard AAR to the additional one? Is it at the Define Account Assignment Reference Determination for Securities? If yes, we have already done this by changing the constant for the related Product Type.

    These are the steps that we did for our new product Securities - Bond Investment.

    1. IMG - Define AAR : We have both standard 50300 and our new AAR BD1100-HTM

    2. IMG - Define AAR Determination for Securites : at constant now it's ponting to the standard 50300. We even tried to point to our new AAR BD1100-HTM. Both still produced the same error message.

    3. IMG - Allocate Additional Account Assignment to AAR : New Company Code --> New AAR BD1100-HTM --> BArea --> CCtr

    4. IMG - Define Account Determination - Assignment of GL Account to Account Symbols : 1 --> BD1100-HTM

    5.3.3 --> BD1100-HTM

    5. Then, created a Class ID as our 1st purchase of Corporate Bonds by using the standard Product Type 04I Fixed Interest Bonds

    6. Next, we encountered the error message while performing TBB1 Post Flow for the above ID Number created. It says AAR 50300 is not assigned with GL Account for Symbols 1 & 5.3.3.... It doesn't point to our new AAR BD1100-HTM even we have configured earlier.

    7. And we tried to perform TPM28, but we got nothing as the system prompted "No Transfer Was Carried Out"

      Hi,

      In your second step, Determine AAR it is now kept at old AAR 50300. Please change the constant value to your new AAR and then run it.

      And just to ensure you have assigned G/L accounts to account symbols right. In case if you still get the error message, for test purpose assign G/L accounts directly to the Account symbol without any AAR and check whether it is working. Then assign an entry with AAR.

      Regards,

      Ravi

    Hi Ravi,

    We've tried TPM28 to perform Account Assignment Reference Transfer from the current AAR 50300 to the new one BD1100-HTM.

    We ran on Test Run and got 1 entry, but when we proceed with Carry Out Transfer Posting, the system told that "No Transfer was carried out"

    Is there something that we missed?

    Ravi,

    Yepp... Tried that before, pointing to our new AAR but still getting the same error message.

    We managed to post our Securities - Bond by using our new AAR. in FTR_EDIT - Change button, we change the position indicator for the related transaction no. In we can see our account balance has been reflected accordingly.

    Is there any implication at other areas that we don't realize?

      Hi,

      This will not have any implication. This is done to change the AAR at individual transaction level. The other method is to change at the overall security ID level. The reason you got the message earlier that no account assignment reference transferred were because you might not have had any transactions created for that security ID. Only if the transactions are created, it will be moved to the new AAR through that method.

      Regards,

      Ravi

    Hi,

    When u said : The other method is to change at the overall security ID level.

    Where can this be done, I mean in IMG. Is it the one that we did in Step 2?

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    - From what I understand based on our discussion, AAR can be pre-set by defaulting it at the constant based on selected Product Type. But we've done this and nothing happened. Still pointing to the current AAR 50300. So my question as per above.

    - If not, AAR can be changed manually before posting via FTR_EDIT > environment > position indicator > change. This step is required everytime we want to post our transaction.

    - Alternatively, we post to the current AAR, and then transfer to the new desired AAR via TPM28

    Correct me if I'm wrong. and appreciate your comment based on my question above. thanks!

      Hi,

      Yes the other method is the same as mentioned above.

      As for AAR, it has to be preset. Only in rare cases you go for manual assignment when entering the transaction. You need to use the derivation rules to derive your AAR for the combination of your requirements. When entering the derivation rule itself, there is an option to test. Check there by giving your ID number and other values and see which AAR is derived. Are you using your step in addition to the SAP delivered step. In that case AAR might be derived in the SAP step itself and hence derivation will not come to your step.

      Regards,

      Ravi
