With S4, is there any progress to be able to clear a GL account with Many user.
I explain my case, our consultant proposes to create for each Bank account 8 GL account with 7 managed by open item.
We have 50 banks accounts --> 400 GL accounts with 350 manages with OI, it's very nice to follow it, like we said in France, We don't have a Chinese Army.
We would like to build another solution:
8 GL accounts for one Bank/Currency/country
in each posting, we add in assignment field ID Bank + ID Account
Our concern is with S4 and Fiori App, is it possible to clear GL account with more than one user in same time ? Does Sap lock the data at Company code / GL account or Does SAP lock data at item level ?
Or using lite BAM, do we have another better solution ?
I'm not sure it's a good idea. What about your trial balance? Normally, accountants would like to see balances on each and every bank account also in G/L ledger within standard trial balance reports. With your suggested settings, you won't be able to provide this.
Don't be scared by the number of G/L accounts managed with O/I. If the clearing mechanism is configured correctly and the documents (payments, transfers, statements) are introduced with a good reference, you would have most of the items cleared automatically.
