message erro (F5008) launching program RFSUMB00

Hi All,

launching batch input for end year postings (program RFSUMB00), SAP gives me the follow message:

Message no. F5008


You want to post via a special G/L indicator which was not maintained

completely in the system. The specification on which reconciliation

account is to be updated in the general ledger is missing.


In system configuration enter a special G/L account corresponding to

reconciliation account A202001040 for account type D and special G/L

indicator W.

Could anyone help me?




regarding the year-end closing documents generated by RFSUMB00 for

the reconciliation accounts (which can not be posted directly) your

first solution approach by creating a dummy vendor account per "normal"

reconciliation account is the correct procedure (i.e. the normal recon.

account is assigned in the vendor master data). This means that the

dummy vendor is used for the closing postings addressed to the normal

reconciliation account and - by the assignment of the special G/L

indicator - to the related special reconciliation account.

In this conjunction please maintian table TABKT by assigning the

account number which is to be closed/selected in TABKT-SAKNR. If

TABKT-SAKNR is a "normal" reconciliation account please maintain TABKT

as follows (example):

Client Comp.code Account Acc.type Supplier SG/L Soll Haben

xxx xxx 0010222000 D 0010222001 xx xx

In case of a special G/L reconciliation account for indicator 'W' the

entry needs to maintained like this:

Client Comp.code Account Acc.type Supplier SG/L Soll Haben

xxx xxx 0010222001 D 0010222001 W xx

By maintaining the settings in this way the closing documents will be

posted correctly as requested.
