Cause

You have enabled the Financial Forecast for Procurement functionality in your solution profile.
In Scopicing navigate to Financial and Management Accounting > Management Accounting > Financial Planning:
With the SAP Business ByDesign Upgrade to system version 1711 an enhancement was introduced for Financial Forecast for Procurement which is now supported for both Non-Stock as well as To-Stock scenarios.
However, you do not use Financial Forecast within the system for payments so you do not want to set up an Account Determination in Fine Tuning.

Resolution

Because you do not use financial forecasting for the posting records on payment side*, you can just remove the Step 2 - Cash Account option.

You can do this by following the below steps:

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center.
  2. Go to Implementation Projects view.
  3. Select current project.
  4. Click Open Activity List.
  5. Show All Activities.
  6. Find activity Financial Forecast.
  7. Click the activity Financial Forecast.
  8. Click Edit Forecast Posting Schemes.
  9. Select the Posting Scheme usable for the Procurement.
  10. Select Step 2 by selecting the selction button on the left hand side of the screen.
  11. Select Delete.
