Posting Level, Doc Type n Mvmt Type
Many thanks for my earlier querry on TP. I have few more things to ask from you experts.
1. What is purpose of Posting Level and Document Type ? How they are different and where we can
create them ?
2. What is the function of Movement Type ? Where can we create the movement type ?
Best regards and many thanks to you in advance.

A little hint: when you want to provide some links in help.sap.com, then just click on the little red left arrow that you see in the first, topic description. You'll arrive to the proper topis'c link. Instead of giving the link to the whole module, you'll have the precise link, like here:
Additions to what Anurag Tambe said.
1). Posting levels allow the BCS' user to have information in the system segregated by its origin:
PL 00 - reported data, RFD (plus some changes entered by means of reclasses without document assigned).
PL 01 - some corection to RFD.
PL 10 - some transformation data (very often it's a transformation from a local legislation to GAAP ot IAS).
PL 20 - eliminations between pairs of companies.
PL 30 - entries related to Consolidation of Investments and elimination of unrealised profits in supply chain operations.
It's very useful. At any moment you may see the original (almost) RFD and all corrections/transformations/eliminations etc.
- Document types determine many features, like the PL, currency of the entry etc. etc. They also allow to assign special items to them. In this case you may overwrite the settings set on the system level and allow the system generating specific for the document entries.
2). Movement types is an additional analytic to the items that helps to recognise different types of data. Like Begining balance, increase, decrease etc. In general, interpretaion of the MoveTypes depends on you. You may introduce different types you need. They are to be created in the workbench.
