Accounting document not shown in VF03 document flow after client copy

One of the more common problems occurs after data had been copied from the productive system to a test or development system, there on the target system the accounting document is not shown in the document flow of the invoice:


The accounting document exists in reality, but when clicking on the accounting button in transaction VF03, then the error message occurs, that it had not yet been created (error message identification VF062):


The root cause is the logical system, which is for the created invoice (table field VBRK-LOGSYS) not identical to the one to which the client is assigned (table field T000-LOGSYS):


The solution in this case is to convert the logical system in VBRK to the one used in the client.

There is a standard tool for this conversion, the transaction BDLS:


Here the old logical system name and the new one (to which the client is assigned) will have to be inserted, and for table VBRK a conversion of the table triggered. First in a test run it can be checked what would the system do:

The number of relevant entries should correspond with the number of invoices that have the old logical system in table VBRK, which can be verified by selecting in transaction SE16:


One known issue that can prevent the conversion is in case the protocol tables :




do still have entries. This can also be seen in SE16 by inserting the table names and checking the number of entries as shown above.

In case data records are present in any one of them, then the report RBDLSMAP_RESET will have to be executed before using transaction BDLS. If this report is not yet present in the system, it can be implemented from note 962674.

      Nice documents from your end,

      I request you to help me on this.

      We do intercompany stock transfer.

      Our client requirement is as below,

      During MIGO in receiving plant the accouting enrty

      Inventory G/l 1 Dr (BSX)

      GR/IR Cr

      While selling the material to end customer in

      receiving plant ,we do PGI.

      They need accouting entry as below,

      COGS Dr

      Inventory G/l 2 Cr (BSX)

      We tried to work out but it is hitting same Inventory G/L(i.e We cannot differentiate Inventory G/L during MIGO & PGI)  ,but it is not possible by us.

      Is there any standard procedure to do this.

      Else also provide us is there any user exit available,so that modification can be done to hit different Inventory G/L accounts.

      Hi Mani,

      thanks for your positive feedback.

      Your question is not related to this blog.

      To get an answer please open a thread in the SCN forum. As it is concerning MIGO, I think you should post it to the ERP SCM Logistics Execution forum.

      Best regards,

      small correction needed:

      please change "BDSL" to "BDLS" in 2 places in documentation...  and 1 in the tags!

      Hi venu gopal,

      in the first sentence I explained in which situtation this problem occurs.

      After you have copied from productive system to a test system, the logical system in the invoices (field VBRK-LOGSYS) will have to be adjusted to the one used in the target system (field T000-LOGSYS) in case those are not the same.

      Otherwise the accounting document can not be shown in the document flow.

      Best regards,

      Dear Tobias,

      I am facing issue in my Test system. From a documeny number in VF03, when i am clicking on Accounting documents, it is taking almost 30 minutes to show me accounting documents(4 numbers in this specific case). What is strange is that , sometimes it is faster say 30 secs, sometimes it is 30 minutes. Checking performance of system is ok. What exactly needs to be checked. Please see if you can help.
