Planning in General Ledger


I introduce the planning functionality of the new general ledger at our customer. I have created all plan version, plan profiles... everything is working. But when I enter real test data via GP12N, I can not explain myself what SAP is posting.


I input in GP12N my variables: period, com.code, PC, account (e.g. receivables)...

When I input the amount and use distribution key 2. SAP is posting it.

But when I look at a FI report (S_PL0_86000029 - Fin. Statement: Plan/Actual Comparison) I see once the debit of the receivable, but as well a credit in my shareholder's equity. It seems that SAP is posting immediately a second line (contra posting), so the document has a zero balance.

For me this is really strange, because before I only knew PCA planning and there I once never received a contra-posting and secondly where can I find this contra-account in the customzing. I have checked and searched for it, but I was not successful. Or is this SAP standard? If yes, for what reason?

Thanks a lot for your support.
