dear greeshma,

Sorry Please refer this note.

Previous one had some written mistake

Make Business area field as optional/ required in all Field Status Groups and Posting keys.

check tcode OBY6 and select the business area wise financial statement.

Try this, your problem will be solved and also reply to me.

If it helps out assign points.

Hi,

First check the Field status group assigned to the GL account you are using in FS00. Then go to OBC4, check for the Additional account assignments for tht FSG. There you can find whether BA is made mandatory or optional.

Hi:

Business area is not recommended by SAP. Go for Profit center accounting.

Go to Field status OBC4. select field status group and select general data and select business area and make it required field.

Go to posting keys OB41 and select field status and select business area and make it required field.

Go to OBD4 - Define Accounts groups and select select field status and select business area and make it required field.

Please let me know if you need more information.

Assign points if useful.

Hello Sridhar,

Thanks for replying.I follwed the steps suggested by you.But I didnt find business area field in OBD4.due to which when users are making entry in FBCJ they get an error ''Filed Business Area is required entry for Co code -


Gl account -


( i.e Cash GL account ).

From where i can view Business Area filed in OBD4.
