14.  Classify Document Types for Document Splitting

 

Use

Every business transaction that is entered is analyzed during the document splitting process. In this process, the system determines which splitting rule is applied to the document. In order that the system can determine the splitting rule, you have to assign a business transaction variant to each document type.

To ensure that a splitting rule is used appropriately, the relevant documents have to meet certain requirements. These requirements relate in particular to certain item categories that either must or must not be available. This information is specified for each business transaction variant and is checked against the current document during posting. If the document does not meet these requirements, the system rejects the posting.

 

IMG Menu

Financial Accounting (NEW) > General Ledger Accounting (New) > Business Transactions > Document Splitting > Classify Document Types for Document Splitting

15.  Define Document Splitting Characteristics for General Ledger Accounting

 

Use

In this step, you specify an input tax indicator per company code.
Then the system uses this indicator when you post acquisitions that are not subject to tax.

 

IMG Menu

Financial Accounting (NEW) > General ledger accounting (NEW) > Business transactions > Document splitting > Define Document Splitting Characteristics for General Ledger Accounting

16.  Define Document Splitting Characteristics for Controlling

 

Use

In this IMG activity, you specify which additional characteristics you intend to apply for document splitting.
The additional characteristics are not relevant for General Ledger Accounting.
Instead, they are relevant for other application components (such as subcomponents in CO) that use documents transferred from General Ledger Accounting.

 

IMG Menu

Financial Accounting (NEW) > General ledger accounting (NEW) > Business transactions > Document splitting > Define Document Splitting Characteristics for Controlling

 

Field

17.  Activate Document Splitting

 

Use

In this IMG activity, you have to activate document splitting. The splitting method used is the SAP standard one, which contains the splitting rules for the different business transactions. If this splitting method does not meet your requirements, you can first define and then select your own method in Customizing for document splitting. You can do this choosing Extended Document Splitting > Assign Splitting Method.

 

The activation then applies for the entire client. You can explicitly exclude individual company codes from document splitting. This means, however, that you are then no longer able to create any cross-company-code transactions containing company codes that have divergent settings for document splitting.

 

IMG Menu

Financial Accounting (NEW) > General ledger accounting (NEW) > Business transactions > Document splitting > Activate Document Splitting

18.  Define Tolerance Groups for G/L Accounting

 

Use

IMG Menu

Financial Accounting(NEW) > General Ledger Accounting (NEW) > Business Transactions > Open Item Clearing > Clearing Differences > Define Tolerance Groups for G/L Accounting

 

19.  Define Posting Key for Incoming Invoices/Credit Memos

 

Use

When you enter incoming invoices and credit memos, the posting keys for the open items and G/L account items are generated automatically by the system. You can not change these keys when entering invoices and credit memos.

 

IMG Menu

Financial Accounting (NEW) > Accounts Receivable/Accounts Payable > Business Transactions > Incoming Invoices/Credit Memos > Incoming Invoices/Credit Memo – Enjoy > Define Posting Key for Incoming Invoices/Credit Memos

 

Make the following entries for transaction EGX (Vendor item with special G/L indicator):

21.  Create Dummy Profit Center

 

Use

The dummy profit center receives postings concerning objects for which no profit center assignment exists. This ensures that your data will be complete in Profit Center Accounting.

 

To create the master record for the dummy profit center use this special transaction. To change or display it, use the normal profit center maintenance functions.

The name of the dummy profit center is displayed in the controlling area settings for Profit Center Accounting.
