Hi All,

We are not using Business Area concept and Business Area is not activated in out system. But, I want use BA field as a clearing criteria for F.13 clearing in OB74. I am planning to update BA field in GL line items through a BDC. Is it possible to use BA field even though BA is not activated in our system. Thanks in advance for all your inputs.

Warm Regards,

Business area is not for clearing creteria. This is for separate reporting tool for internal purpose. If company does not want business area, why you want to post in business area?

Anyway you do the following settings for your senerio:

Just create a business area

And change the field status for business area as optional or required field.

There is no assignment between company code and business area.

You can use directly the business area field for your transactions if it is created and field status group is allowed to ready for input.
