3235677 - Profitability segment determination from service document


You post journal entry with app Post General Journal Entries.
You would like to determine the profitability segment characteristics automatically from the service document, however, this doesn't work well.




For service documents, there are no derivation rules shipped in the Substitution / Validation tool, i.e. if you choose to assign a profitability segment as true CO account assignment and entered a service document on the account assignment screen of the profitability segment, no derivations should take place. For this case, you would need to create such rules in the Substitution / Validation tool.

If you enter a service document in the CO account assignment area, i.e. the coding block, you cannot maintain an additional profitability segment since you will end up with an error message saying you may only enter one true CO account assignment, either service document or profitability segment, once you leave the PA account assignment screen.


It's recommended that the you only enter the service document in the coding block and uses this one as true CO account assignment because in this case PA attribution logic should automatically determine an attributed profitability segment and fill the desired attributes reading proxy table which should be available for each service document with the Accounting-relevant data.
