The purpose of this article is to provide an outline of how to check your system to see if document splitting is active. Also of interest is whether or not the splitting is active for all company codes or not.
It can be often confusing to realise that in a system with document splitting active, there are some company codes where document splitting is apparently not active. Here is explanation of how to check this in the system and determine if it is active or not for certain company codes. This article pertains to document splitting in a system with the New General Ledger active.
Step 1 - Verify that the New General Ledger is active
This can be done by accessing transaction FAGL_ACTIVATION:
Alternatively, you can check this by looking at the entry in table FAGL_ACTIVEC:
...this field SPLITMETHD filled indicates that splitting is active also.
Step 2 - Verify that splitting is active
Again, this can be checked by looking at the entry in table FAGL_ACTIVEC:
...if the field is filled then you know that splitting is active.
You can also check the customising directly in transaction SPRO with the menu path:
So with this setting enabled, by default this means that splitting is active for all company codes.
Step 3 - Check if splitting is deactivated for any particular company code
As mentioned, it is possible to have document splitting active in your system for a limited set of company codes. This is achieved by "deactivating" the splitting for certain company codes in customising as follows:
Here you can see if the splitting is deactivated for any particular company code.
So In conclusion, it is possible to have splitting active in a client for a particular set of company codes and also it is possible to exclude certain company codes from the splitting if necessary.
