RFINDEX - Errors in section Reconciliation INDEX vs BSEG
After converting a normal GL account into OIM, we have executed the report RFINDEX for consistency check.
We have found errors in the section Reconciliation INDEX vs BSEG.
But I am not sure what exactly the system trying to make me understand and the list of documents that got affected.
Analysis log says that error msg appears at XBLNR field in BSEG & BSIS table.
However, we do not find the field in BSEG table. Then why the system is showing it as "error msg "?
May I request the forum to throw some light and route me towards solution for overcoming the issue?

Please note first of all that the repair option in RFINDEX is only available for use SAP Support. We never recommend that customers or general systems users use this report in repair mode themselves. It can lead to further inconsistencies if used incorrectly.
The error you have seen on this account related to XBLNR is arising because there are differences in the values when comparing the contents of field BKPF-XBLNR and BSIS-XBLNR for a particular set of line items. The XBLNR field is in the header table BKPF and not BSEG.
This error is usually a non critical error and can occur when customising settings such as user exits, substitutions update the XBLNR field in one table (eg BKPF) but not in another (eg BSIS). In these types of situations we usually advise customers to first take time in understanding why the values are updated for XBLNR in their system; the field is highly customizable and therefore errors like this can often appear in systems when running RFINDEX. There is no bug in the standard system which causes these types of differences.
The good news is that this error has nothing to do with the open item management which you enabled. Otherwise you would see error messages like "XOPVW" etc. From your description it seems that the conversion to Open Item Management you did was successful.
