Error message shown: Either balance sheet or profit and loss account required per material
The screen variant 629 - Manual Adjusting Entry for Materials is used to adjust the accounts within Inventory subledger itself and not across subledgers.
Suppose an incorrect account determination group was entered in the material master. As a result, the material values were posted to the wrong material stock account. To rectify this, you assign the correct account determination group and transfer the values to the correct material stock account using the screen variant 629 – Manual Adjusting Entry for Materials.
You need to use the screen variant 630 – Manual Write-Up/Write-Down for Materials to adjust the accounts across subledgers.
This screen variant enables write-ups and write-downs for warehouse inventories, material expenses, and material differences. You must choose a G/L account from the account types listed above for at least one line item, and make the subledger account assignments for the business residence or material.
