Change the Recon Account Type

Former Member

Hi,

The users are trying to post the entry into a GL Account directly using the T Code FB50. However, the system gives the error message -

"Account XXX in Company Code XXX is marked as a reconciliation account for account type "D" and cannot therefore be directly posted."

When we check the GL Master using the T Code FS00, we find that the GL Code has not been marked for automatic posting. Could you please advise as to how can we change the Account Type from Recon to non Recon type. This GL Code is not intended by the users for any of the Subsidiary accounts such as Vendors/Customers.

Thanks in advance.

Regards

You cannot change recon type to customers unlike Assets Recon accounts. Instead block this GL and use new Account.

Hi, Thanks for the prompt feedback. My problem is how can we 'unmark' this Account and make it as Non Recon type?

There is no posting in this account at all. If you refer to the message, it says that Account XXX is marked as recon Account for Account type "D".

Dear Rajjul

If there are no postings made to the GL account from AR subledger, then you can edit the GL master and unmark the Recon account indicator.

However if there are any postings to this GL, like say postings to the customer subledger attached to this GL, then you cannot make this change.

Thanks

Hi Pooja,

Thanks for the feedback. In the GL Master I have already unmarked the GL Code made the same as non recon account. Even then the system is giving the error message when the direct postings are made. Is there anything that we need to check on the config side?

Would appreciate your immediate help.

Thanks.

Hi Rajjul,

recon account measn you can not directly post to this GL account. You need to select customer and post to this customer and system will post amount to this GL account which you have assigned in customer master.

If you want to make direct posting to this GL account, need to remove recon type from this GL.

Go to FS00, select GL account. Go to 'control data' tab abd remove recon account for acc type as customer. Put blank.

and save.

before you do this plz make sure that you have not done any kind of entry on this account.

Now system will allow you to post directly on this GL.

I hope this helps you. Assign points if useful.

Regards,

Pritam

Hello Rajjul,

You cann't make the postings to recon accounts. Recon acconts will show u all ledger balances means in a consolidted form. Ex: there are 30 vendors and use recon account X. So these 30 vendor sub ledger balances will show u in X.

I am not sure, system may not allow you to change the recon account. Moreover u can take permission from ur PL and client as well. Instead of this you can create one more gl account in FS00 as normal gl. Please transfer the old bal from old account to new account after that u can block that old gl. now onward u can use new gl only

Thanks
