GL account to be made visible and editable in MIGO/ MB1A wrt reservation

Hi,

This is with regard to Goods Issue against Reservation.

The client has hidden the GL account field at the time of Reservation creation thru an ABAP program, since they do not want the user creating the reservation to edit the GL account. Hence, when the Reservation for Goods issue is posted the GL account is on the basis of system settings.

Now at the time of Goods Issue wrt Reservation the system does not display the GL account at all. It only displays the Cost centre. Here, the user requires us to make the GL account visible as well as editable.

We have tried several possibilities by making the field GL account mandatory in the mvt type. But it does not help.

Please advice.

Regards,

Charu

    In Standard SAP, MB25 doesnt have any field settings. it's controlled via movement type only and not like MIGO. If you check in OMBW( screen layout for GI), there is only cost center and no GL account field. Only movement type has both GL account and cost center field settings options. so analyzing these stuffs I feel SAP has some strings/program which controls these fields from reservation to MIGO.

    As you already deactivated the GLaccount and cost center through programming, your ABAPERs can help you get GL account to MIGO but are we not complicating and disturbing lot of standard functionalities? do we really need this? I can advice to use some dummy GL account/cost center in MB21(reservation) and later user can enter/change the exact GL account / cost center in MIGO_GI.

    Hi,

    When you creates reservation,that time you have already entered cost center with G/L account which can not be edited.So when your doing MIGO with goods issue for reservation, all material with cost center and G/L account copy from reservation and you can post the document.

    If you are not reservation created with data as cost center and G/L account,then cancel reservation and create new resrvation with new cost center and G/L account and save. Now do MIGO with goods issue for new reservation, all material with new cost center and G/L account copy from new reservation and you can post the document.

    Hi,

    What you have explained is the std. SAP way of working.

    While creating reservation, say with mov.type 201, once you give cost centre input, system automatically hides G/L account field. This is as per SAP design and I don't think there is any ABAP work done to hide G/L account field in reservation.

    Whereas, once you try to post goods issue for reservation, system looks in OBYC settings for automatic a/c determination and finds the G/L account for "offsetting entry for inventory". Now this G/L account has got nothing to do with cost centre and it does not vary from one cost centre to another. It is in fact a consumption account. This will be displayed in the goods issue transaction.

    Therfore, this G/L account field should not be allowed to be entered manually - simple reason is that the stores person who issues material will not know what is the G/L account.

    There is no need to take ABAP help here.

    You can still modify configuration settings as below to allow entry of G/L account but that is not advisable.

    1. IMG:>>MM>>Inventory mgmt>>Goods issues & trf postings>>Manual a/c assignment - here make a/c control for your mov.type as optional/mandatory entry.

    2. Take help from FI consultant and make field selection for G/L account match with field selection for mov.type.
