    You will not be able to change a P&L account to balance sheet or vice-versa since the account has a balance. Why would you want to do that? Have you thought about the impact on retained earnings account? Here is the detailed FH602 message.

    Message no. FH602


    You have changed the G/L account from a "balance sheet account" to a

    System is not letting you change the message in OBA5 as it does not want you to. Please follow the fix suggested in the detailed message above (running balance carryforward to rollover your P&L balances into the retained earnings account).

    FH511 is just saying that you cannot save the account due to error FH602. It is not maintainable in OBA5. It does not show up in OBA5 since it is not set as a configurable system message in table T100S.
