2709158 - G/L Account Does Not Appear in Journal Entry Voucher for Fixed Assets


You have created Journal Entry Voucher for Fixed Asset Manual Postings, but when you enter in the document overview and check the entries, the system does not show the G/L Account.


SAP Business ByDesign.

Reproducing the Issue

To check the Journal Entries Vouchers created in the system:

  1. Go to General Ledger work center.
  2. Go to Journal Entry Voucher view.
  3. Chose document type Manual Posting for Fixed Assets.
  4. Within the Journal Entry Voucher, the G/L Account details do not appear.


This is because in not all the cases the G/L Account could be determined at the time of posting of the fixed asset documents.
The Journal Entry Voucher created by the fixed asset will essentially capture everything that is entered on the UI by the user. In the case of manual acquisition and revaluation, the user just enters an Offsetting account and the debit/credit amount. Thus this information is available in the Journal Entry Voucher when it is created. In all other cases, we do not have this information at the time of creation of the document.


The system works as designed as this is expected behavior. However, if this is necessary to check the G/L Account, this is shown in the Journal Entry created for the Journal Entry Voucher.
