Document split (SAP Note 1085921)
From note 1085921 the following is stated in relation to cross company code postings:
2.10.2 Leading Item / Cross Company posting
An inter-company posting creates at least two documents, one per each
company code. There are two possible solutions to process inter-company
1.Split each document in each company code separately.
In this case there should be only one entry in the splitting rule for the item category to be edited - 01100 CC <> CC of leading item.
The split is performed locally. Only the line items which belong to the currently processed company code are taken into consideration.
2.Process all documents together as one inter-company document.
In this case there should be two entries in the splitting rule for the item category to be edited:
" 01100 CC = CC of leading item
" 01100 CC <> CC of leading item
The split is performed for all the documents. Line items of all company codes involved are taken into consideration.
The Leading Item category needs to be defined in case account assignments need to be transferred across the company codes (only case 2.). It is needed in order to identify the leading document where the account assignment will be transferred to.
The Document which does not contain the leading item will be processed first. The Company Code Clearing line (01100) of the document, which does not contain the leading item, is split based on the local document. The Company Code Clearing line (01100) of the document, which does contain the leading item, is split on basis of the documents that have already been split locally in the first step.
