Reproducing the Issue

"Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental."




Table BSEG is summarized in the Cloud according to G/L summarization transaction OBCY for Reference Transaction VBRK regarding PAOBJNR and some other fields as the profitability segment is unnecessary in table BSEG in the normal case.


The customer can check the G/L View instead of the Entry View in the G/L document display.


Actually there would be no difference in the information that user would see in the PA segment of the billing document and PA segment of the FI document as it should be the same PA segment. So there is no need to check the PA segment in the FI document; it can be checked in the billing document itself.
