Symptom

When you post FI documents to the new general ledger, CO account assignments of
the entry view are not always updated in General Ledger Accounting (new). In the
display transactions (for example, FB03 and FAGLL03), the CO account assignments
are displayed in the entry view but not in the general ledger view.

Reason and Prerequisites
Prerequisite:
You have activated General Ledger Accounting (New).
You have assigned relevant scenarios for the update in the relevant ledger of
General Ledger Accounting (New). (This may be the case as part of the cost
center update scenario FIN_CCA).

If it is an FI subsequent process with follow-up costs (posting of cash discount
or exchange rate differences) in a document with original account assignment,
document splitting must also be activated and relevant document splitting
characteristics must be defined in Controlling. (IMG: Financial Accounting (New)
-> General Ledger Accounting (New) -> Business Transactions -> Document
Splitting -> Define Document Splitting Characteristics for Controlling). This
process defines which CO account assignment objects are to be updated in the
general ledger, that is, account assignments set there are posted in line items
of the entry view to accounts created in Controlling as cost elements.

However, these CO account assignments specified are only updated in General
Ledger Accounting (new) if they represent real account assignments, and not
statistical account assignments.

Solution

Statistical CO account assignments are not relevant for postings of General
Ledger Accounting (new) and are not updated in NewGL for this reason.
Therefore, in the display transactions (for example, FB03 and FAGLL03), these
are displayed in the entry view only, and not in the general ledger view. This
is not an inconsistency but a correct system response.

A function is provided to update real, revenue-bearing account assignments of CO
only in General Ledger Accounting (new). Statistical CO objects are used in CO
for reporting only and are not processed by other applications.

Similarly, subsequent CO processes (assessment, distribution) only take real
(not statistical) account assignments into consideration. These subsequent
processes in CO can create CO/FI follow-on documents in FI during real-time
