1. In existing version of SAP BO, every item in the inventory been tied to a set of GL account code & those account code is preset in the item category. All those GL account, that tied to the item will reflect the marketing documents such as DO and Invoices.

Is it possible that an account code can be change flexibly on the marketing document due to the different fucntionality of the same item sales?

e.g - Sales Documents

line 1: Item A Qty:10 --> GLcode= 100010-11-11 (Default)

line 2: Item A Qty:2 --> GLcode= 100010-11-22

2. Can 1 item have multiple item group. (For diffrent acount)?

Need advice..

Hi Bruce or should i say Batman

Just kidding.To answer your question.

1)Which account code do you want to change? If you want to change the sales account yes you can do it flexibly. when you got your invoice open click on form settings and you'll see there is GL Account, this will pull through automaticaly the sales account linked to the item depending whether it's set up for warehouse, item group.Can change it manualy, or basicaly write a query that say's, above 5 this acc, above ten this acc.

2) No, you can't have more than one item group.

What you can do is set a item to do it's gl on item level, these accounts can be changed as needed but so can the item groups accounts be changed as needed.But you could change the accounts as needed before the document is added, but this would be development. Not 100% sure if it will work, but should.

Let me know what you think?

Hi Bruce,

1 - You can change the account code on the marketing document. I´ll recommend you to do it using a formatted search, much easier than coding.

2 - One Item can only be assigned to one item group.
