Example document splitting – vendor invoice splitting by profit center
I want to show the principle of document splitting.
Expected result shows GL view with splitting information:
How can we achieve this?
Step 1: Customizing
Where do we find customizing – see screenshot below
Classify GL accounts for relevant chart of accounts in your company code.
Which one is relevant – take a look on table T001
Enter name of COA and make setting for accounts
Enter at least P&L account and reconciliation account for posting vendor invoice, also add correct item category to account
In the next step classify document type for entering vendor invoice
Add business transaction and business transaction variant.
Then we define splitting criteria (like segment, profit center,….)
In the next step I have defined splitting criteria for controlling
In the last step document splitting is activated and constant value was set up
Step 2: Posting vendor invoice using TCd. FB60
Data for posting vendor invoice is entered.
Two lines on expense side have been entered with cost centers having different profit center
Using General Ledger Simulation, we take a look on the data in detail
In simulation mode we can see that splitting is done
We can see that data for reconciliation account 16 0000 was splitted in accordance to expense entries (= base lines for splitting)
Using expert mode in this screen shows us some more details.
We post document and take a look on entry and GL view
Step 3 query on posted document
When using document splitting, you can report vendors per splitting criteria like segment, profit center
How you do this: I have written in document which can be found under following link:
I am looking forward to you feedback and discussion
All the best erwin
