The Long Text of Error GLT1409 which is raised when making changes to the SSCUI 103055 - Define Document Splitting Characteristics for Controlling states the following
Making subsequent changes to characteristics can lead to inconsistencies
Message no. GLT1409
In a production system, the subsequent inclusion of document splitting characteristics for Controlling or the post-capitalization of cash discounts to assets can cause inconsistencies in document processing. Note that the changes to the Customizing settings do not make corresponding adjustments to any transaction data already posted.
If you subsequently add a new document splitting characteristic for Controlling or subsequently capitalize cash discounts to assets, these changes only apply to new documents to be posted. If there is transaction data in the current system or in the target system for this change to the Customizing settings, note that there may be a delay before the new setting takes effect.
Since there has not been a projection corresponding to the new document splitting characteristics for the documents posted previously, account assignments cannot be made completely for the documents already entered in the system. The actual changes to the Customizing settings do not make corresponding adjustments to any transaction data already present. Consequently, the follow-on processes for documents that already exist do not have complete account assignments either.
The post-capitalization of cash discounts to assets does not occur if the related invoices have not been posted with the changed settings.
When new document splitting characteristics are defined for Controlling, postings cannot be made to the affected accounts that are defined as cost elements if no default derivation relevant to Controlling has been entered or if the existing data has not been migrated.
If production data has already been entered in the system, we recommend not making subsequent changes to the Customizing settings if possible. However, if the change is required, you need to perform a check on the data posted previously to ensure that subsequent problems do not occur in production systems.
Ensure that there is a Controlling-relevant default derivation for the affected accounts.
In cases involving the post-capitalization of cash discounts to assets, you can manually adjust cash discounts to assets.
Check whether the desired changes to the Customizing settings are essential. Ensure that the changes you make to the Customizing settings do not have any critical consequences. For detailed information on this subject, see SAP Note 891144.
Any transaction data present must also be converted accordingly. Note that there are currently no standardized migration tools available for converting transaction data that has already been posted. For detailed and up-to-date information on this subject, see SAP Note 812919.
