Sort key in xkn1
For all vendors i am using 100501 as a reconciliation account . In fs00 i gave the sort key o12 for 100501
Here my doubt is what is the significance of giving sort key in xkn1. ?
Thanks & Regards

You are getting confused in the concept of subsidiary ledger and General ledger. The significance of of giving sort key in XK01 is that the subsidiary ledger of vendor like FBL1N when executed will be automatically sorted according to the sort key given in vendor master data e.t posting date wise . The sort key given in recon account master data FS00 will determine sorting characteristics for Recon GL a/c when executed in FBL3N e.g vendor number. Hope it will clear.
