Hi

In the application component Special Purpose Ledger, you can define ledgers for reporting purposes. You can keep these user-defined ledgers as general ledgers or subsidiary ledgers with various account assignment objects. Account assignment objects can either be SAP dimensions from various applications (such as account, cost center, business area, profit center) or customer-defined dimensions (such as region).

The Special Purpose Ledger allows you to report at various levels using the values from the various application components. The modules in the Special Purpose Ledger allow you to collect information, combine information, and create totals. You can also modify, assess, and distribute actual and plan values that are transferred from other SAP applications or external systems to the Special Purpose Ledger.

The use of the Special Purpose Ledger has no effect on the actual functions of other SAP applications.

Regards

Hari P

Hi Sureshnaidu,

When you are working with new G/L accounting perhaps you can better use a paralel ledger and not special purpose ledger.

The use is you can report on a different way. You offen see a combination with transaction types in asset accounting, plants, movement types, different fiscal year, local tax reporting,...)
