Offsetting account number determinatitons

Hi everyone,

I'm working on FI-CO module on a 4.6C SAP release. I would like to how how it is possible to customize which offsetting account the system should select when posting CO documents. Actually when posting a CO document the systems automatically displays the recepient cost center, the cost center used, the amount and an offset account together with and offset account type. Which through transaction is possible to indicate to the system which specific offsetting account to select? Has this anything to do with statistical postings?

Thanks in advance for your help!

this is what I think is not possible )

The logic is predefined by SAP and is hardcoded in function module FI_OFFSET_ACCOUNT_DETERMINE, which you can check out in transaction SE37. Even if you have no ABAP skills, you should check it out for the inline comments. Also, there are some OSS notes dealing with this issue, all of them are changing the above function module a bit.

But finally, from a user/consultant point of view, there is no chance to change this logic. In OSS, you can search for COEP-GKONT if you like.

Some standard reports (like the mentioned RFHABU00), a particular business transaction event (BTE) for the FBLxN transactions in FI, and the Special Purpose ledger are using built-in or custom methods for offsetting account determination.

RFHABU00 and the BTE (FBLxN) is display only, and Special Ledger is of course something custom-specific. In Controlling, as explained above, the logic is fixed in the above function module and the result is stored permanently (consider OSS note 45122 on a possible change afterwards - but handle with care!!!)

Hope this helps, points welcome
