Purpose: for easy understand the reason why the clearing document without posting items cannot be created,if New G/L is activated,
<= Enterprise 470, please refer to SAP Note 69767
|<= Enterprise 470||The fields of structure KONTAB_1ST are identical in cleared items||The fields of structure KONTAB_1ST are NOT identical in cleared items|
|Standard behavior||Clearing document with BKPF, without BSEG can be created||Clearing document with BKPF & BSEG are created|
>= ERR5.0, please refer to SAP NOTE:950773
|>= ERR5.0||New G/L is activated||New G/L is not activated|
|Standard Behavior||Clearing document with BKPF & BSEG ( at least 2 clearing items which are for clearing open items -> 1 in debit and another one in credit )are created||The behavior is same with the one above(release <= Enterprise 470)|
Example for explaining why the clearing document without posting items cannot be created anymore if NEW G/L is activated
- Posting 2 open items with same account assignment, in other words that the fields of structure KONTAB_1ST are identical in cleared items
- Check account assignment in BSEG for both 2 cleared items (for this case, they are profit center PRCTR, cost center KOSTL and SEGMENT).
- Clearing them in F-44, 2 clearing items are created in debit and credit side with same account and same account assignment, the amount in debit and credit are not merged.
- Why both 2 clearing items are not merged, the document with BKPF only is not create, let check the date in New G/L line item table FAGLFLEXA
The line items in the general ledger view(FAGLFLEXA)) need have a reference to a line item in the entry view (BSEG), hence the clearing without clearing lines, only a document header would not be created anymore if NEW G/L is activated.
This behavior is also for the exchange rate difference line items as well. When clearing, if the account assignments defined in view: V_FAGL_SPLIT_FL2 with flag of "RealExchRate Dif" are not the same, then multiple exchange rate difference line items may be created, the calculated exchange rate different amount in debit and credit cannot be merged.
