GL Field required in MIGO for Movement type 261

Hi

We created one maintenance order. We added components in that maintenance order. After adding it, I got reservation number for that component.

In MIGO, i selected, Goods Issues against Reservation. Movement type got selected as 261.

In the MIGO screen, I entered details like quantity, storage location and clicked on OK. System didn't gave me any field to enter GL account.

Afterwards I saved the MIGO. System posted accounting entry by debiting to Consumption Stores Spares A/c (which it picked from OBYC - GBB VBR setting).

My business requirement says that "Consumption stores spares A/c" should not be debited. User should have option to enter GL in this case (when MIGO is against reservation). Because same stores may be used for different purpose like repairing to building, repairing to machinery, etc

I tried settings in following node:

SPRO --> Material Management --> Inventory Management and Physical Inventory --> Settings for Enjoy Transactions --> Settings for Goods Movements (MIGO) --> Field Selection per Mvt Type --> Mvt Type 261, field KONTO (GL account) is optional.

SPRO --> Material Management --> Inventory Management and Physical Inventory --> Goods Issue / Transfer Postings --> Set Manual Account Assignment --> Account control for 261 is blank. I also tried by maintaining it as "." i.e. entry in this field is optional.

But still GL field is not appearing in MIGO for Movement type 261.

Please let me know how to enter GL account in MIGO for movement type 261.

    This will not work in the MIGO, but while assigning the Reservation with the AA Object assign ask the user to assign the G/L account there. Then the required G/L will be picked up. The reason is for that AA Object you might have the G/L being fetched automatically from OKB9.

    • You may either have to go for ABAP development or write FI validation while Posting the document into accouting.

      As you dont have any criteria with in the SAP system to disinguish the different GL accounts.

      There is one method which is not recommended. You may try to create one Program to Update the RESB table according to your requirement.

    Hi Deepak,

    Coming to your main question 'User should have option to enter G/L at MIGO'. how this can be done in the business, entering G/L account manually?

    Your requirement is for 261 movement, So as you mentioned in the main post, it will pick from OBYC - GBB VBR setting (material valuation class plays a role). In case of reservations, only after 'quantity withdrawn' this G/L account(maintained in obyc) will be updated in reservation.

    I think change of G/L account cannot be possible because its relevant to valuation class, so as per SAP only one G/L possible for a single valuation class relevant to VBR.

    If you need particular G/L account to be updated then maintain it in OBYC and link it to VBR, valuation class and other parameters.

    You can change the reservation details like quantity and other indicators by using the work order.

    IW32 >> Order Number >> Components tab >> select component(your required material) >> click on Gen.Data (general data) >> you can change the reservation details

    But no option of G/L account because system triggers it throug OBYC.

    Dear Deepak,

    Why don’t you post the GI thru MB1A instant of MIGO.

    T.Code : MB1A

    Mvt : 261

    Plant : AB01

    Storage : PS01

    Press Enter

    GL : 100201

    Order : 500066844

    Material, Qty, then save …

    This is the simply way and no need to maintain any condition for MIGO.

    Attachment can help you to understand clearly.

    Cheers ..
