Where do we specify the sample account in FS00. I created a sample account
for all expense accounts to use a particular field status group. Now I want to
specify that sample account while creating g/l accounts. how do I do that?
We define Sample account at OB15 and the path is SAP Ref:
Step1: Maintain List of Rules types
In this step you just create a code for your Sample Account
Create a New Entry
XXXX Sample account for Pleasecontact1 then save
Step 2: Define Data Tranfer Rules FSK2
In this step you define the data tranfer rule i.e., whether it can be
editable or only display etc after a Master recored is created with Sample
Selects the fields that you want to transfer (check boxes)and can be changed
and can't be changed etc., then save.
Step 3: Assign Company Code to Rule Type
In this step you will assign your sample account to your company code.
Just select your company and select your Sample account and assing then save.
Step 4: Create Sample Account. FSM1
Now create Sample Account same as you create at FS00, then Save.
Now Sample account is created. Now you can find Sample account field in FS00
(if you assign it company code it won't be displayed) enter Sample account no,
and press enter all the fiels that you have selected in Step 2 will be copied
(transferred) accrding the the rule (checkboxes) you have selected there.
At Tcode FS00
At FS00 you can see/Edit/Create a GL Master Record which is maintained by the
Company Code. Where as Sample Account is not GL Master Record but it is a set of
settings/rules which are easily available to create a GL Master Record
(understand this point clearly) This sample account does not hold your
transaction data nor you can edit or view at FS00.
To use your Sample Account:
1. Go to FS00, give a GL account no (other than Sample account no ofcourse).
2. Then check all fields, whether any field is filled like Currency, Open Item
Management, etc *for your confirmation* (obviously every field is empty)
3. Now enter Sample Account no in Sample Account field and give Account Group.
press Enter. U will get a message that "Data from changed Sample account was
accepted", check data.
4. Now chek all fields again. Now u will find some fields filled with values
which you have defined in Data Transfer Rules while creating Sample Account.
