Reproducing the Issue
Try to change the reconciliation account with alternative reconciliation account.
In order to enable alternative reconciliation account, following configuration steps or master data settings need to be executed in SSCUI 150001 - Manage G/L Account Master Data:
- In G/L account master data: change the account group for the reconciliation account from ABST to RECN.
- In G/L account master data: The checkbox "Rec.Act Ready" should be visible and select it.
- In SSCUI 102631 "Define Alternative Reconciliation Accounts": maintain alternative reconciliation accounts for the reconciliation account.
Concerning Apps 'Create Supplier Invoice' or 'Create Supplier invoice - Advanced'.
The usage of alternative reconciliation accounts is not supported. It is NOT possible to edit the reconciliation account.
You can create a Supplier Invoice using the FI webgui tile 'Create Incoming Invoices' where the Reconciliation Account field is open for editing and an alternative reconciliation account can be set. In order to change the reconciliation account in app 'Create Incoming Invoices', above three steps need to be configured as well.
From S/4HANA CLOUD 1911 onwards, it is also possible to enter an alternative reconciliation account for account items in apps "Clear Incoming Payments", "Clear Outgoing Payments" and "Clear G/L Accounts".
