Is ABSO and AB01 exactly the same? (just differs by transaction code)

Hi,

I would like to know if ABSO and AB01 are doing exactly the same thing (just the transaction codes are different)

Thanks!

Regards,

Hi Paul,

sorry for that, but this time I have to disagree

AB01 is the "master" of FI-AA posting transactions. So I would recommend lots of times to use AB01. Most FI-AA transactions (ABxx) are only "derivates" of AB01, with little bit tweaked screens and/or already transaction types pre-entered at the screen.

Concerning the question: AB01 and ABSO are in principle the same, but in AB01 you have ttype 100 for acquisitions pre-entered already. This eases the usage if you have to post an acquisition for the user.

And now to lift the miracle: ABSO calls internally (technically) AB01 ...

Regards,

Markus
