Account Assignment Types: Use in Fixed Assets (PDI)

In my article Extending the Journal Entry Voucher Upload (Excel), I wrote about Custom Codes (Fine Tuning Activity Account Assignment Types).

Account Assignments do allow additional reporting capabilities, but they are coming with the limitation that they are not available in periodic runs (GR/IR run, WIP clearing, revenue recognition), but there is a way to get this functionality into Fixed Assets.

When depreciation is calculated, automated or manual entries are made for Fixed Assets, it will create a Journal Entry Voucher. The Fixed Asset itself does not support the Custom Code fields, but the Journal Entry does. So, assuming there are enough criterias to derive the Custom Code on the Fixed Asset, you can implement the AfterModify Action of Business Object AccountingEntry.


import ABSL;

this.CustomCode1 = “DE”;

      Dear Thomas,


      Do you know if these limitations (GR/IR run, WIP clearing, revenue recognition and fixed assets) still exists in 1711 version ?


      We see the possibility to use it in the purchase part but we didn't succed to use it in the sales part.

      Do you know if it is possible to use the Custom codes in Sales order and Customer invoice ?

      Thank you.


      Best Regards,

      Benjamin TRISTAN

      Hello Benjamin,

      as far as I know, the situation has not changed. In sales, account assignments will break in revenue recognition, but they should work - my colleague wrote an example on how to use these assignments when invoicing projects.

      Best regards,
