I am executing T Code: FF_5 for uploading the "Multi-Cash" Format. This transaction clears the Bank Clearing Account and post the entry to the credit of "Bank Main Account".
Now while i had executed F110, the Business area was properly captured in the Bank Clearing Account Line item. But while executing FF_5, the Business Area is not getting captured against the "Main Bank Account" Line item.
Can you please tell me how to capture the Business Area against the "Main Bank Account" Line item.
I think this will only work if you have business area balance sheet active for your company code (see transaction OBY6, this is field T001-XGSBE). As far as I can remember if you have a unique business area in the document, then this BA is copied to the line items without a BA. If you do not have any subledger account, like in case of FF_5 will post main bank account vs. bank subaccount from F110, this automatic population of the BA does not take place.
I am not familiar with newGL, but the document split functionality, which was available for the Special Ledger FI-SL before newGL came to the market, has offered this functionality, i.e., forwarding the business area information throughout the whole document chain: invoce --> F110 --> FF_5. Standard FI (FI-GL) was not able to do so. Business area "split" is only supported for subledger accounts, VAT and cash discount / FX differences.
Hope that helps, points welcome
