SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to General Ledger Work Center.
  2. Go to Journal Entries View.
  3. Go to Journal Entry Vouchers Sub view.
  4. Open Journal Entry Voucher ABC.

Here you see Created By field however you do not see the Posted By field in the Journal Entry Voucher.


The 'Posted By' field in this view is currently not available and the system provides the other field 'Journal Entry Created By' in the related Journal Entry as a reference instead.


When you open the related the Journal Entry DEF of the Journal Entry Voucher ABC, in personalisation mode, you can add fields Created By and Journal Entry Created By.

Created By field lists the user who has created the source document - in this case it's a Journal Entry Voucher(JEV) but can be any source document.

Journal Entry Created By field lists the user who posted the document - this could be the same user, or (as in this case) a different user.


You can go to Business Analytics work center, open Journal Report which has 2 fields "Created By" and "Source Document Created By".

"Created By" shows the person who actually posts the Journal Entry Voucher which also means who posts the Journal Entry.

"Source Document Created By" shows the person who creates the Journal Entry Voucher.
