2918894 - Error when Merging Change Project: "Value XXX in setting Assignment of GL-Accounts must also be entered in setting General Ledger Accounts"

Symptom

Merge of change project with production fails with errors in the merge report, similar to the following type:

  • Value XXX in setting Assignment of GL-Accounts must also be entered in setting General Ledger Accounts
  • Value YYY in setting Miscellaneous Ledger General Ledger Account Alias must also be entered in setting Permitted G/L Accounts by Account Type and Posting
  • Value ZZZ in setting General Ledger: Other Income must also be entered in setting Permitted G/L Accounts by Account Type and Posting

(XXX / YYY / ZZZ represent the individual values in the respective settings)

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Cause

Some financial accounts had been created or changed in the main workspace while the change project was open.

Resolution

Please open an incident with SAP Product Support.

Development will have to take over these creations and changes manually into the change project. Afterwards, it will be possible to complete the merge successfully. You will then be able to perform the last steps to close the project.

Please note:

To avoid such issues in the future, we would advise to keep the lifetime of change projects short (which makes sense in general) and to avoid changes of financial accounts in the main workspace while a change project is open.
