Freight Setup

Dear Experts,

I want to distribute the Freight Charge into Item Cost at Goods Receipt PO, so i setup the Freight under Administration > Setup > General > Freight

Revenue Account and Expense Account are entered properly.

Distribution Method = Row Total

Drawing Method = Total

Stock = Yes

When i Add the Goods Receipt PO, error message prompt: No matching records found 'G/L Accounts' (OACT) (ODBC-2028).

If i change Stock = No, then the Goods Receipt PO can be added successfully.

I am using SAP 8.8 Patch 12. Can you please advise where did i configure wrongly?

    Hi Amol,

    Please check if your revenue and expense accounts you set in the freight set up are in proper drawers.

    Thanking you

      Hi Amol,

      Have you checked the expense clearing account defined in G/L Account determination > Inventory Tab? Or in Item Group > Accounting Tab (if accounting is managed by item group for inventory) or Warehouse > Accounting Tab (if accounting is managed by Warehouse for Inventory).

      When you enable the 'stock' option, system needs to make accounting enrty of freight at the time ofGRPO to incorporate the freight cost into stock. Whereas when you don't use 'stock' (cost) option, system does not need to post frieght entry at GRPO because it just needs to take the stock value (without frieght) in accounting entries and instead system makes freight accounting entries at the Invoice.

      Thats why you are having the 'G/L account not found' error when you are using 'stock' option in freight setup.

      Hope this helps,
