3071353 - Account Assignment Details not Appearing in Supplier Invoice( Goods receipt exist) or Account Assignment Details not Appearing in Goods receipt


You expect GL account to be passed on from Purchase order to Goods and service receipt(GSR) and then from GSR to Supplier invoice.


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

1. Go to the Purchase requests and orders workcenter

2. Purchase orders

3. Select the Purchase order

4. Navigate to the items tab and further to the account assignment tab

5. Here you will see G/L account appearing

6. Go to document flow tab and open the follow up documents

 Where G/L account in the GSR or the Supplier invoice of this purchase order is empty


Currently for supplier invoice the base document is Purchase Order and  the Account account information flows from purchase order to GSR.

However if GSR was not manually created but via time confirmation then currently we have a technical limitation to send GL account from PO to GSR in case the GSR is created automatically from a time confirmation.


This feature is not supported in the current release of SAP Business ByDesign.

however this can be achieved by Partner add-ons ,who can read the info from Purchase order when the GSR is created from time recording to populate G/L accounts in GSR and invoice.

1.If you are a partner: you can help develop this using SDK or  please use or the Partnerfinder .
2.If you are a customer: if you already have a partner ,ask them to help develop it for you through SDK.
