Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open 'Post General Journal Entries' (ID F0718)
  2. Fill mandatory fields
  3. Specify a value for 'Group Ledger' e.g. 0L
  4. Enter a standard open item managed G/L account e.g. 15300000
  5. Post
  6. See error message FAGL_POST_SERVICE012

Note: There are several scenarios in which this error can be triggered - it is not limited to the 'Post General Journal Entires' app.


System behaves as designed


If a ledger-group-specific-posting is required, either define a different non open item managed account for posting or change the master data of the currently used G/L account (assuming it is custom made account not delievered by SAP). Otherwise don't specify any value for Group Ledger.
