3119392 - Error changing G/L account type from Balance sheet account to Nonoperating Expense or Income - S/4HANA CLOUD

Symptom

Upon changing G/L account type from Balance sheet account to Nonoperating Expense or Income the error FH601 - "Change the balance sheet control only if nothing has been posted yet" raised.

Environment

 S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Enter SSCUI 150001 - Manage G/L account master data
  2. Enter Edit mode
  3. Change G/L account type from Balance sheet account to Nonoperating Expense or Income
  4. Save
  5. Error

Cause

Even with balance zero on the G/L account the change is strictly forbidden, because the G/L account has already been posted to.

Resolution

In the Cloud, G/L account type change is not recommended (e.g. different number ranges, account groups). Preferably a new G/L account is to be created.

The solution can be seen in HelpPortal FAQ, question "Can I change the G/L account type and subtype?"
