Hi,

I need to change the Chart of Accounts drawer, I am currently using User Defined COA.

Standard SAP COA:

Assets

Liabilities

Capital

Turn over

Cost of sales

Operating Cost

Non-operating Income and Expenditure

Taxation and Extraordinary Item

I need to changed it into:

Assets

Liabilities and Equity

Turn over

Cost of sales

Operating Cost

Non-operating Income and Expenditure

Share in results of associates

Tax

my question is: if i changed the drawer, will it affect the financial reports?

for example if i changed the third drawer into turnover when it should be Capital,

will it affect my balance sheet report?

Thanks,

Hi David,

Its better to prepare financial report template as per your requirement rather then trying to change the drawer (which unfortunately seems not possible in B1).

Hi David

The Drawers are Level 1 accounts and cannot be changed in SAP Business One. My question is where you intend on changing them as there is no feature to do this inside of SAP Business One? SAP does not support changing direct in the database tables. I would suggest you raise a development request with SAP for this requirement or consider some SDK development to achieve this without changing SAP Business One's structure.

Kind regards

If the drawer can be changed, it definitely will affect all financial reports. I am afraid it can not be done.

Thanks,
