This is from some old posting

As real posting is concerned it is the actual transaction occurs which post the documents but as in statistical it is not complete posting so u can post it no. of times or no. of posting u can do in statistical posting . but in real posting u can do only one posting.

2. Suppose if u r posting the document for real order then in this case ur cost centre will be statistically posted and data will also statistically posted on profit center.

if data is posted on real cost center then here ur order will be statistical .and prifit center will also be statistical ,

this means that in all cases the data will be statistically posted on profit center either u have real coste center or order.
