Hi All

I am referring & following a case study from SAP book. I created “EXCA” chart of accounts by copying from Chart of account “CAUS” via Financial Accounting > General Ledger Accounting> G/L Accounts> Master Data > G/L Account Creation & Processing > Alternative Methods > Copy G/L Accounts > Copy Chart of Accounts.

Then created company codes 1100, ES10, ES20, ES40 for US locations and linked chart of accounts “EXCA” to each one of them under "Enter Global Parameters".

Then I go under “GL Accounts under General Ledger->Master Records->individual processing-FSS0-In Company Code” on the primary SAP screen and try to configure G/L Account in EXCA for Company code 1100.It gives an error message “This Account 473121 does not exist in chart of accts "EXCA" for specified co. code 1100".

How do I know what G/L account numbers are available or already created under "CAUS". Do I need to make any changes in Chart of
accounts “EXCA” after copying from SAP supplied Chart of accounts “CAUS”.

Your help will be highly appreciated.
