Hi,

Document Types for Entry View

In this activity, you define your document types. Document types are used to differentiate the business transactions and to manage how document are stored.

Document Types for General Ledger View

You define for non-leading ledgers the document types for the documents in the General Ledger view. At the same time, you assign for each document type a number range to be applied in the assignment of document numbers:

o You do not need to make these settings for your leading ledger

because, in the case of this ledger, the document number in the

entry view always corresponds to the document number in the general

ledger view.

o You only have to make these settings for any non-leading ledgers

that have a fiscal year variant that differs in at least one company

code from the fiscal year variant of the leading ledger in this

company code. In this case, the document number in the entry view

does not correspond to the document number in the general ledger

view and you have to define a separate document type with document

number assignment for the general ledger view.

For all non-leading ledgers that, in the company code to which the

postings are made, have a fiscal year variant corresponding to the

fiscal year variant of the leading ledger in this company code, the

document number in the entry view always corresponds to the document

number in the general ledger view.

Note

The need to define a document type for documents in the general

ledger view depends only on whether the fiscal year variant of the

non-leading ledger in the company code (to which the postings are

made) differs from the fiscal year variant of the leading ledger in

this company code.

Kiran
