How to link customer account or vendor account or any master data with General Ledger?

Hi folks,

I was researching on how SAP links master data like Customer Account or Vendor account or Bank account with General Ledger, especially while creating a invoice how these above mentioned master data will be linked or fetched?

Any link documentation or clarification of the process will be a great help for me.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Indranil

  General Ledger is the main Ledger where all accounts are maintained. Vendor and Customer ledgers are sub-ledgers where each line item transaction is kept vendor/customer wise.

  In general ledger one Reconciliation/Dy Debtor/Sy creditor account is opened and maintained in Vendor/Customer Master. This account is the link between General Ledger and Sub-Ledger of Vendor and customer.

When any invoice is posted against any vendor/customer system goes to Master data of that vendor/customer and find out the Recon account defined in the vendor/customer Master and link the transaction with that to post it to General Ledger.

I think you have got your answer.
