configure automatic postings
in this step, you enter the system settings for inventory management and invoice verification transactions for automatic postings to g/l accounts.
you can then check your settings using a simulation function.
under further information there is a list of transactions in materials management and their definitions.
what are automatic postings?
postings are made to g/l accounts automatically in the case of invoice verification and inventory management transactions relevant to financial and cost accounting.
posting lines are created in the following accounts in the case of a goods issue for a cost center:
- stock account
- consumption account
how does the system find the relevant accounts?
when entering the goods movement, the user does not have to enter a g/l account, since the r/3 system automatically finds the accounts to which postings are to be made using the following data:
- chart of accounts of the company code
- valuation grouping code of the valuation area
- transaction/event key (internal processing key)
