Hello All,


In this blog, will give an explanation on the restricted GL Accounts types to avoid during the GL Balances Migration


If you have filled the migration template with GL Accounts that belong to the given list of account types, then lets see with an example.



Here, it is first of all not accepting this GL Account because this belong to one of the account type that is listed above.

If for instance if you give some GL Account of type PCCLEA

You will come across errors like 'not permitted for postings or it may stop before this step only as show in the below screenshot



Just to give a sample, when these accounts are used.


These GL Accounts will be used during the balance carryforward by the system automatically. Ideally, if the GL Migration of the previous year end data, we need to upload the migration of the GL & other subledgers and close the year and for that you need to execute the balance carryforward run and at this stage, based on the migration data & data that is already posted during regular transactions, system will determine the GL Accounts like retailed earnings, balance sheet closing accounts etc.,

Note: The screenshots used are from sap internal system & test data.

Hope, this blog helps some of you.

Feel free to post your comments.
