Definition of FM Account Assignments as General Ledger Split Characteristic

Hi Experts,

We have PSM -BCS activated, we are using commitment item, fund center, functional area and funded program as account assignment elements.

We have activated profile 000102 and We don´t need online payment update. The functional area is specially used in internal order.

We have Document Splitting activated and just we need as characteristics for General Ledger Accounting the profit center and the segment.

For technical reasons, Must all FM account assignments be defined as Characteristics for General Ledger Accounting?

Thank you

If online payment update is definitely not foreseen in your project, then it's not necessary. However, bear in mind, that if some day you decide to work with online update, then all FM assignment would have to be present and changing split characteristics in operational system is quite messy.
