Reproducing the Issue
- Go to the General Ledger work center.
- Go to the Source Documents view.
- Find unposted Goods and Activity Confirmation ZZZ.
- Notice the error message: 'Account determination for inventories is not defined in business configuration for account determination group ABC'.
The Goods and Activity Confirmation ZZZ is an Inventory Difference Confirmation. There is a missing account determination setup for Account Determination Group for Material ABC in the Inventories subledger for Physical Inventories, either related to Inventory Differences* or Inventory Revaluations **.
*Mainly caused by rounding and a different valuation logic for outgoing (Quantity x Resulting Inventory Value ÷ Resulting Inventory Quantity) and incoming stock (Quantity x Resulting Inventory Cost).
**Revaluations can occur when Goods and Activity confirmations are posted retrospectively.
The required account determination setup is to be maintained, as follows:
- In the Business Configuration work center access the Charts of Accounts, Financial Reporting Structures, Account Determination activity, either from the Business Configuration Overview or from the Activity List of the Implementation Project.
- Under Account Determination select Inventories.
- Click Inventories subledger.
- Move to Physical Inventory tab.
- Enter a row for Account Determination Group for Materials ABC and maintain accounts for both Gain from Inventory Differences and Loss from Inventory Differences
- Or select Gains and Losses tab and input G/L account Gain from Inventory Revaluation and Loss from Inventory Revaluation of the corresponding material account determination group.
- Save the changes.
As a result, Goods and Activity Confirmation ZZZ could be posted.
