2324523 - ME045 not always issued in ME21N/ME22N


You create a purchase order with account assignment and set the system message ME 045 (G/L account & cannot be used (please correct) ) to warning or error.
You notice that the message is not issued, even though there is an incompatibity between the account assigment data of the PO and the GL account. For example, you configure an account assignment object (e.g. WBS element) as hidden for the account assignment category, but it is mandatory in the field selection of the GL account. In this case you expect the ME045 to be raised pointing out this incompatibility.
If you then try to post a goods receipt for this PO, you get the error message F5 808 (Field & is a required field for G/L account ).
