When posting to an asset, the functional area is not populated for line items related to statistical areas.
SAP S/4HANA CLOUD
Reproducing the Issue
- Enter Asset Accounting App.
- Enter the parameters for posting.
- Simulate the posting.
- Check the lines items for statistical areas.
Statistical areas which is only relevant for asset reporting and are not integrated into the general ledger and cost accounting. Even if there is a substitution rule will not work for statistical areas (they are not relevant). Even if a functional area would be assigned (or a cost center) it would have no impact on the respective reporting. All non-asset relevant information on these items are just statistically and cannot be reported in other components.
The system correctly does not assign functional area to statistical areas.
