No Multiple Account Assignment for Blanket PO
As of release 4.6x, SAP does not allow multiple account assignment for blanket Purchase Order on the same Purchase Order line. (Item Category - B - Blanket item)
To get around the constraints, users could enter a second line item and assign a different account assignment.
Things might get messy if the person doing the releases selects the wrong line item
if the Goods Receipts was received under the wrong line item.
This becomes a training issue, but it can be done.
Multiple Account Assignment In Purchase Order
I've found something about multiple account assingment. If i have
multiple assignment i can't have valued receipt, but if i desable the flag
i have no message.
Can I set a material to force to enable GR indicator and force to
disable GR indicator?
We have an unusual situation relative to accounts payable invoice entry.
Our users create a requisition and subsequent PO (using requisition release strategies) with a single account assignment category. They cannot use multiple account assignment category distribution because they cannot have non-valuated goods receipts. They purchase services, primarily.
There are multiple occasions when the invoice for the service arrives
that they need to change the account assignment to include either multiple
objects within an account assignment category or distribute the costs among
multiple account assignment categories, as in one or more cost centers
and one or more internal orders. They wish to do this all on the same line
item at goods receipt or invoice entry, rather than modifying the purchase
Has anyone encountered this requirement and, if so, how was it handled?
1) Go to transaction OME9 and flag on the 'IR changeability' indicator
of the account assignment category 'K' (since this is for services).
When GR is posted, no accounting document will be generated. This accounting document will be created during IR posting where A/P can manually modify the accounting data as their wish.
Is there a way to configure in MM where PO line items can have multiple
account assignments and still create accounting entries when posted during
Goods Receipt in MB01? Currently, I can't assign multiple accounting entries
to PO line item unless indicated as GR non-valuated. If GR non-valuated,
no accounting entries will be created during Goods Receipt, entries will
be created only during IV.
From the accounting point of view, for one particular single line item, it is possible to split into different cost centers or internal orders. For instance, I have ordered 10 pcs of bearings of which 4 will be charged to Cost Center A and the remaining 6 pcs will be posted to cost center B. However, it is of SAP standard feature that once using the multiple-account assignment, no accounting document will be generated after GR posting. They will only be posted when IR is maintained.
