Hi ,

The purpose to activate Line item display is to get the entire details of the transaction line item wise when an account is displayed. However this may not be required in case of the subledgers. All the subledgers as Asset Accounting, Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable are maintained to record the details of transactions related to them ,However these need to be anyhow reflected ultimately in the General ledger , because the ultimate financial statements are derived from the GL. Hence the GL maintains the Recon. accounts in case of AR and AP where it is not needed to have the Line item level details which already exist in the individual ledgers. It is sufficient to have one summation of such entries in the GL.

Hi

Because the data is already available in subsidiary ledgers. SAP donot encourage you to go for line item display(although it donot restrict you) coz it will have effects on system resources.

Hi,

1. Line Item display is not used for Asset /Vendor/ Customer Reconciliation Accounts cause there are Subsidiary Ledgers maintained individually. So only one or few accounts via reconcialiation accounts are maintained in General Ledger. Detailed transactions are accessed via Subsi Ledgers.

2. Open Item Management is meant for Clearing Accounts, wherein we expect a matching entry to nullify the initial entry. Open Item Management is not required because of reason mentioned for 1 above.
