business area is Inherited from debit line in MIRO

Dear All,

I have a question that after we have upgraded the system from R/3 4.7 to ECC 6.0, we found that when the invoice is posted against PO via transaction code MIRO, the business area of Debit side is Inherited to the credit side (vendor line)

For example:

In our R/3 4.7 environment. the invoice against PO is as below:

31 (CR) Vendor:123 (No Business Area)

81 (DR) Business Area:0001 Cost Center: A

But after upgrade, the entries become:

31 (CR) Business Area:0001 Vendor:123 (The business area is Inherited from debit line)

81 (DR) Business Area:0001 Cost Center: A

Do you have any suggestions, so that we can have the same behavior as R/3 4.7?

Thanks very much.

    It seems that you have document splitting active in your system and hence the system is deriving the Business Area from the debit line item. This is the correct way, as you may have multiple Business Area and he vendor liability should be splitted so that the financial statement are balanced at the Business Area level. If you still want to enter business area in vendor line item, while keying in the vendor invoice, you can do so. but in case, there are multiple business area in the invoice, you should also identify how the splitting will occur for vendor liability, if you enter, business area at the vendor line item.
