Special Purpose Ledger
Special Purpose Ledgers are ledgers that you can define for your specific business and organizational requirements. The ledgers contain the dimensions you enter. You can create Special Purpose Ledgers in your FI-SL system.
Step 1) Define Table Directory
Financial Accounting (New) -> Special Purpose Ledger->Basic Settings->Tables->Execute Express Installation
In this activity, you can perform an express installation for a FI-SL system. The system performs the express installation for the respective functions using default settings and values.
Step 2) Maintain Table Directory
Financial Accounting (New) -> Special Purpose Ledger->Basic Settings-> Maintain Table Directory
In this step, you can call up a directory of all the tables used in the Special Purpose Ledger system and display or maintain these tables. The table directory is updated automatically when you install an FI-SL table. You should only maintain it manually if absolutely necessary.
Step 3) Maintain Fixed Field Movement:
Financial Accounting (New)-> Special Purpose Ledger->Basic Settings-> Maintain Fixed Field Movements
In this step, you can define which fields of a sender table are transferred to the fields of a FI-SL receiver table. Table T800M is updated automatically if you install a FI-SL table you should only maintain the table manually if absolutely necessary. You should under no circumstances delete entries from this table.
Step 4) Maintain Field Movements
Financial Accounting (New)-> Special Purpose Ledger-> Basic Settings-> Master Data-> Maintain Field Movements
When assigning activities to your company code/ledger and global company/ledger combinations, you define a field grouping code for each combination. This field grouping code determines which dimensions from other SAP application areas are transferred to dimensions in the FI-SL system. In the “Maintain Field Movement” step you can maintain the field grouping codes for your activities.
Step 5) Define Ledger
Financial Accounting (New) -> Special Purpose Ledger-> Basic Settings-> Master Data-> Ledger-> Define Ledger
In this step, you can create and maintain a Special Purpose Ledger. Data is posted to the ledgers from other SAP application areas or external systems and can also be entered directly in the FI-SL system.

Financial Accounting (New)-> Special Purpose Ledger-> Basic Settings-> Master Data-> Ledger-> Maintain Company Codes
