Default GL account in PO for non valuated/non stock materials

Hi All, We need to default GL account in PO for non-valuated and non-stock materials. We do not have accounting view for both of them so can not maintain the valuation class. I maintained a blank entry for valuation class in OBYC which is as follows.

COA->GBB->Val Modf.->VBR-Blank for val. class->Debit/credit.

This works and defaults the GL account in the PO. Is this the right way to do it?? Using this we have the capability to default only one GL account. Is there a way to default multiple GL accounts based on some other criteris???

Also, in OMQW transaction we can maintain the Material Group and Valuation Class combination. But I have tested and that is only working for free text POs which are without any material code. Is that right????

Please suggest. Thanks

      Guys..Thanks for your responses. I actually was looking to default GL account based on either OMQW or OBYC and not account assignment category. After testing and going through the documentation Bijay provided, I understand that for free text POs, the system gives priority to valuation class maintained in OMQW. And, for material masters which do not have accounting view (like non-valuated materials) can be taken care of by a blank entry for valuation class in OBYC.

      Reteesh, Thanks for your patience. Appreciate it.

    Hi,

    For material without the accounting view (Ex. in case of Material type NLAG) or material with account assignment without material master record, you can default a G/L account of material group valuation class.

      Its a 3 way search: Valuation Class (Accounting View), Valuation Class (Material Group) and If you purchase without Material master & there is no valuation class assigned to material grp then the system will take the blank entry in GBB to pick the G/L account.

      No problem at all! Need to have clear concept, either ways.

      What I meant I have stated above and for material w/o material master or non valuated you maintain/assign valuation class to material group here (IMG->Purchasing->Entry aid for items without material master or OMQW .)

      And just to clarify, as you stated in your question, you are defaulting the G/l account based on account assignment category and you were looking for other ways to default and that is thru Material Group.

      Now, according to my knowledge when the search happens it begins to search from specific to general and based on the level at which data is maintained, it defaults the G/L account.

      I stand to get corrected, if otherwise :)?

    Hi,

    If you are not maintaining the Accounting view for Non-vlauated and Nonstock materials.

    You can defualt the G/L accounts based on Material group that you enter while creating K items...

    Goto--IT-code OMQW here you can assign valuation class to material group.

    In fact that valuation class shouls be asigned to a G/L accoun tin OBYC settings
