Cause

When you migrate G/L account balances, the amounts are posted on the G/L accounts of the corresponding sub ledgers.
The G/L account balances will also be forwarded automatically to Migration Clearing Accounts.
Here the system will not post to the corresponding sub-ledgers due to a G/L account posting-block stating Only automatic postings allowed.


Below are some Examples of sub ledgers of G/L accounts:

Initial Data Carryforward - Accounts Payables
Initial Data Carryforward - Accounts Receivables
Initial Data Carryforward - Asset Account
Initial Data Carryforward - Cash Account
Initial Data Carryforward - Open Items Payable
Initial Data Carryforward - Inventory

Resolution

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center.
  2. Go to Implementation Projects view.
  3. Select the project and open activity list.
  4. Open activity Charts of Accounts, Financial Reporting Structures, Account Determination.
  5. Click link Edit chart of accounts.
  6. Select a G/L in question and go to the view G/L Account Posting Block and select All Postings Allowed from the dropdown.
  7. Also change the corrresponding sub-ledgers G/L Account Posting Block to All Postings Allowed.
