Item name: Chart of Accounts
Step Name: 1. Edit Chart of Accounts List 102422

Resolution

  • If you use the consolidation chart of accounts YGR1 is assigned to standard group of accounts YCOA. If you perform consolidation in an external system, you need to assign group account numbers to the G/L accounts included in chart of accounts YCOA. In addition, this task is also a prerequisite for the G/L account renumbering process. Here's how you assign group account numbers: See Assigning a Group Account Number to a G/L Account

  • The source GL account must have a group account number
