  2. Go to the Journal Entries view.
  3. Select the Journal Entries subview.
  4. Search for the ID: XXX (XXX stands for the ID of the journal entry; and the journal entry is of type: 00059 - Manual Posting for Fixed Assets).

Under the header Item Details: General, the field "G/L Movement Type" is missing.
This JE can also be accessed from the Fixed Assets work center > Edit values > Journal.


You are using a PDI accounting principle to which either the movement type is not assigned or the movement type is assigned without a valid from / valid to date.


  • The system derives the movement types depending on what is defined in the set of books.
  • The available movement types depend on what is available in the accounting principle. If the movement type is assigned to the accounting principle without a valid from / valid to date, the derivation of the field: "G/L Movement Type" does not happen.
  • If you are using a PDI accounting principle, you need to assign the movement type to this accounting principle and make sure the valid from / valid to date is maintained for the derivation of the field: "G/L Movement Type" to happen.
  • The accounting principle BO is FIA_ACCPRINC. In the BO node FIA_ACCPR_MOVTYPE_ASSGN, maintain valid from date and valid to date in order for the G/L movement types to be successfully derived for postings.
  • For predefined accounting principles, this issue usually does not happen as movement types with a valid from / valid to date are assigned.
