FS00 Upgrade issue, missing G/L Account text fields in chart of accounts & company code
Last year in one upgrade project we have faced the issue in displaying G/L account text fields in chart of accounts & company code.
In this document I will explain about FS00/FSP0/FSS0 transactions in brief and the solution for the issue. Most of you folks might know it, but have a look & provide or add your comments.
Introduction to FS00
Transaction FS00 is used to edit the master G/L account centrally.
Using this T-Code:
· We can create, change, block or set the deletion flags for G/L accounts individually.
· We can change chart of accounts & company code specific details of G/L account individually.
G/L accounts can be created in two methods:
· One step Creation:
Here we can directly maintain the company code view & chart of accounts view for a G/L account. (FS00)
· Two Step Creation:
In this we first create the chart of accounts view & second we create a company code view for a G/L account.
SPRO Navigation path:
On executing the highlighted ‘Edit G/L account centrally’ tcode FS00 will be opened.
G/L account has two main parts here:
The chart of Accounts:
This is at client level. Here chart of accounts data can be maintained.
The Company Code:
A company wants to use a particular G/L account from Chart of accounts, for that a company code view has to be created.
Upgrade issue in detail:
We can maintain specific text ids for Chart of Accounts data & Company code data.
Navigation path in SPRO for maintaining text ids.
Prior to upgrade all the chart of accounts text & company code text fields were displayed properly as required in the FS00 layout irrespective of the settings in T-codes OBT6 & OBT7.
In the above screen-shots we can see few check boxes are marked and few are left blank. Irrespective of these settings all the text fields are displayed in the G/L account layout properly prior to the upgrade.
After upgrade the text fields in chart of accounts are not displayed at all & one text field of company code not displayed in FS00, even though the all settings are same before & after upgrade.
On analyzing the issue found that, post upgrade as per the settings in T-codes ‘OBT6’ & ‘OBT7’ layout of ‘FS00’ is modified.
- i.e. we have to mark the required check boxes in these transactions which are required to be displayed in FS00. If we don’t select any text field then the total block will be removed from the layout of FS00.
These changes are implemented through note 1307123 as part of upgrade.
