To say it very plain - Transaction FS10N displays balances, this balance could include many different asset numbers, drill down required for individual asset numbers. FBL3N displays detail, drill down not required.

In case you find that balances in the 2 transactions dont match: 1. Line item display was switched on after there had already been postings to the account (Check your master record for changes in FSS4 and see if the line item display was changed at any point. ) 2. Archiving has been done (archiving line items but obviously keeping the account balance correct). It can be very time consuming, but you can always use SE16 on table BSEG (with your company code and account number as selection fields) to check the actual line items. Line item display uses one of the index tables (BSIS) and there can be differences between that and the actual document database, which SE16 will show you. 3. Check search criteria of FBL3N 4. Check the G/L account whether it is enabled to Line Item Display 5. Run the programm SAPF190 to check the gap

6. Check for your user role, if you have the complete authorization objects for T Codes FS10N and FBL3N. Please take the help of your Basis Consultant for that. 7. Execute the report TFC_COMPARE_V2 from SE38 and also see the program documentation (blue information button) on the selection screen of the report. 8. Run transaction SE38 and execute program RFSEPA01 Posted by Sappy Guy at 10:48 AM 1 comments Email This BlogThis! Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Google Buzz

GL Account Balance Display - FS10N FS10N - is the the transaction code used for GL Account Balance Display. Difference in Last year Closing balance and Current year Opening Balance This will be corrected after running carry forward programme FAGLGVTR (for ECC 6.0) Rerun the f.16 in test mode, this might generate the posting which would fix the disbalance Note 402917 - If the opening balance does not correspond to the closing balance of the previous year on an account even after a repeated balance carryforward, you must always check whether you are dealing with a retained earnings account. If so, then you should check for inconsistencies in your system. And then you can activate the parameter for individualbalances retained earnings account during the start process of the balance carryforward program SAPFGVTR. You then receive a list of all P+L accounts with single values, which are balanced for the value of the retained earnings account. This means that you can reproduce and check the balance on the retained earnings account.

Asset number not displaying in report

SE16 for table BSEG will display asset number with the account balance.

Special fields on FS10N: FS10N > Settings>Special Fields This would promt a warning message stating that this would change a cross client table. For example, if you make a change at client 800, it will change the setting on other table ( client 000 up to client 999). So, always discuss with ABAP folks before these configurations are changed.

Monday, July 19, 2010 Document Splitting in SAP New GL General Ledger SAP ECC 6.0 New GL has a new functionality to create segment financial statements. With the help of document splitting one can allocate an expense line item between two segments. FI Document split and segment is covered via a 'segment field' which is a standard field in the totals table in the New General Ledger FAGLFLEXT. So how does one go about document splitting.

Document splitting needs to be enabled first at the client level customizing. Once this is enabled, then document splitting can be activated / deactivated in each company code. Similarly, 'Inheritance' can be

activated which provides the level of detail for a document split. To take an example, by activating inheritance one can create a customer invoice from a revenue line item. The business areas or segements are automatically populated in the general ledger view showing the customer and tax line items. Activation of 'Inheritance' is recommended with document splitting as this does not require the business to then create 'rules' for business processes to ensure that account assignments are projected.

Document splitting in New GL can be divided into passive split, active(rule based) split or clearing lines by document. With passive document splitting, during clearing of a document, the account assignments of the items to clear are inherited to the clearing line items. Active splitting works on the principle of defining splitting rules. Splitting rules are configured which are used by SAP to make a document split. Finally, in case of clearing lines, New GL creates clearing lines automatically to achieve a split. Document splitting is one of the key functionalities enabled by SAP New GL to help deliver segmented financial statements.
