2983309 - Alternative Accounts Shown in Unassigned Accounts in app "Balance Sheet/Income Statement"

Symptom

In app Balance Sheet/Income Statement (App ID F0708), Alternative G/L Accounts are shown in Unassigned Accounts.

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open app Balance/Sheet Income Statement, select a Financial Statement Version with a country or group chart of accounts, e.g. ****(YCOA)
  2. Select Account Display: Standard, user would like to be able to read that structure in YCOA accounts
  3. But when user switch this option into alternative accounts, all the accounts goes to “not assigned” even though YCOA accounts have their alternative accounts well informed.

Or

  1. Open app Balance/Sheet Income Statement, select a Financial Statement Version with a country or group chart of accounts, e.g. ****(YCES)
  2. Select Account Display: alternative accounts, user would like to be able to read that structure in YCES accounts
  3. But when user switch this option into Standard, all the accounts goes to “not assigned” in YCOA accounts

Cause

It is standard system behavior.

There is currently no option to display alternative accounts in the Balance Sheet / Income Statement App, if the financial statement version selected contains assignments to operative G/L accounts (accounts in operative chart of accounts YCOA).

To enhance the function, there are some aspects that have to be overcome first. One aspect is that there is not a 1:1 relationship between the two chart of accounts. So if we simply swap out the accounts, a given account could for example, appear multiple times in the report. This could cause issues in other standard reports that require a distinct assignment of accounts to one node.

Resolution

If users want to use the alternative accounts feature, they need to use a financial statement version with the alternative accounts assigned to it. That is, for example, the YCES accounts have to be assigned in the FSV and not the YCOA accounts.
