While posting a/p invoice, i'm getting the the following error

since i have defined all the accounts in the inventory, warehouse, and item groups, and also purchase tab in g/l account determination.

This error message usually occurs when there is one or more accounts missing in Administration -> Setup -> Financials -> G/L Account Determination

Please make sure that all accounts are specified in the Sales, Purchase Inventory and general tabs

Also, in the Item Master Data->Inventory Data Tab->Set G/L Accounts by:

+ If by Item Group : Check that all the Accounts are defined under

Administration -> Setup -> Inventory -> Item Group -> Accounting tab

+ If by warehouse : Check that all the accounts are defined under

Administration -> Setup -> Inventory -> Warehouses -> Accounting tab

+ If by Item Check under Item Master Data > Inventory Data tab

See attached note 639207.


Error while adding Marketing doc.

While adding a Marketing Documant with an item (purchase item, sales

item and wh item is checked) the following error message occurs:

G/L Account(1) not defined.

Other terms

G/L Account Determination, definition, System Initialisation, linked,

Purchase, Sales, WH, item, SAP Business One

Reason and Prerequisites



Check for a missing account in the item definition, in the supplier

definition or in the GL Account determination.

The issue occurs because there were no accounts defined when trying to

add a marketing document. The document is added as a draft document,

accounts were then set up and then the draft document was finally

attempted to be added but the draft was not connected to the stock

account. It is recommended to first define accounts, to delete the

original draft document and create a new marketing document draft.

You'll find further information in the online help.
