2585067 - Product Category is not Shown in the G/L Accounts - Line Items Report


You are running a G/L Accounts - Line items report and see that the Product Category is showing as # for few GL Accounts.


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to General ledger work center.
  2. Go to Business Analytics View.
  3. Open G/L Accounts - Line items report.
  4. Enter the selection criteria along with GL Account.

You observe for few GL Accounts the Product Category is not fetched or shown as #.


The items in the invoice/GSR do not have a Product ID. You only have a Product Category.

In such a case, the Product Category is not derived in the G/L Accounts Line items report.


This is the current system behavior.

This is a known issue and the functionality is planned to be made available in a higher release. At this point in time, we are not in a position to provide more accurate information on date and/or timelines for this future release.
