if you want to post to a differnent GL for the same trannsaction ( say BSX) based on plant ( valuation area )  you will use valuation group code, means if you have say 6 plants and you group these for a combination of 1 to 6 using valuation group code

if you want to post to a different GL due to the nature of the transaction, accounting group code is used. like price difference from invoiceand  from production order can be posted to different accout

Lets assume you have 2 plants and one of them is mfg. plant and another is a sales plant. Now you want to bifurcate the costs booked in this plants even though the nature of cost is same than how can you do it? What I mean is if you want that any purchases made for this 2 plants, you want to segregate their GR/IR account, how can you do it? it is only possible if there were 2 accounts for GR/IR.

But even if you have 2 accounts how will assign it if purchase is for the same material (same val. class), the only differenciating factor is plant, so if you want different accounts based on plants than you should have Val. Grping code and that helps in assigning diff. accounts where needed.

About account grouping code, is used to differentiate type of transaction. That means all mov. types 201, 221, 261, 281, etc all are consumption mov. types, but all have different purpose and hence if you want to differentiate that you use different account grouping codes.

Hi,

Account grouping (modifier) ( GBB, PRD and KOM) in OBYC

Valuation grouping code ;- assign to valuation area e.e Plant in OMWD

Same you can find in Material type in OMS2

Think application point of view ,you will get difference,If you think in wording of it will confuse

Hi,

Account Grouping Code: Breaks down account detemination based on movment type.Example 201 Movement type with VBR.

Valuation Grouping Code: Groups  valuation area.You can have one valuation  grouping code,if G/L posting acroos client is same.If G/L posting for same material with different plant will be different needed, then you can use more then one(two) valuation grouping code.
