3042992 - How to confirm the production accounts are balanced in a single period


After period end closing, you would like to check whether the production relevant accounts are balanced or not. It's not clear how to verify it.




The effective way to check whether production accounts are balanced or not, is to check balance by functional area.

  • Open App Journal Entry Analyzer.
  • Input company code, fiscal year and period.
  • Only put "Functional Area" in Rows. Normally the production functional area should be YB20.

If the balance for YB20 is zero, it means that the accounts for production should be balanced.
If there is balance, you can release the field "Order ID" and check for which exact order is with balance.
Afterwards, you could make analysis on the specific order.
