In the SAP standard system direct postings cannot be done to reconciliation accounts. In this case, error message F5354 is being correctly raised.


SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

Reproducing the Issue

You post a document in FI. Error F5354 "Account & in company code & cannot be directly posted to" appears.


The account is defined as a reconciliation account, for which direct posting is not allowed.

The reason why such postings are not permitted is because they would interfere with the reconciliation between the general ledger and subledgers.

Error F5354 "Account & in company code & cannot be directly posted to" is raised to ensure that the reconciliation between sub ledger and general ledger is always guaranteed.


The error is issued correctly.

Please post to the relevant customer/vendor account instead of to the reconciliation account directly, or select a different account to post.
