Balancing field Profit Center in line item 003 not filled Message no. GLT2201
Stechies

Hello SAP Experts,

I am getting the below error - Balancing field "Profit Center" in line item 003 not filled Message no. GLT2201, while posting the invoice in F-02.

I have read the threads related to this issue discussed earlier in this forum. Still, My issue is not resolved.

While posting transactions in FB60,FB70,F-53, Its working fine.

I have kept Cost Center, Profit Center fields optional in FSGs assigned in the below 3 GL Accounts.

Still, Issue is not resolved.

    For the Document type ( GL posting doc. SA or AB) configure the transaction- 0100 that is ' Transfer posting from P&L to B/S account' in the setting ' Classify Doc types for Document Splitting'. in SPRO.

    Are you using new GL functionality of Document splitting...?

    If not then first deactivate this for your company code ..it should work fine.

    Financial Accounting (NEW) > General ledger accounting (NEW) > Business transactions > Document splitting > Define Document Splitting Characteristics for General Ledger Accounting

    Here you have selected Mandatory filed for Profit Centre, Remove the tick mark and try.

    You can able to post it.

    Document type used for F-02 is SA, for which Document splitting rules are not well-configured. Changes should be made to suit our requirement. I have done the below changes and am able to post document with SA Document type.

    For the below issue, instead of changing Business Transaction Variant to 0100, I have made changes to the existing Splitting rule. I have added 4000 Cash Item Category to be split and 20000 Expenses as Base Item Category.

    For the below issue, instead of making changes to Document Splitting rule, we can do it with using "Edit constants for Non assigned process. It means that we set up Default Profit Center. During transaction posting, if Account assignment is not derived, This default Profit Center will be inherited.

    When I am making payment, after activating New GL, I am getting this error - Balancing field "Profit Center" in line item 003 not filled Message no. GLT2201 as 


    Profit Centers are not derived to Bank Accounts. Then, I created "Constant" in "Edit constants and Non assigned process" and assigned and activated "Std Account Assignment". 


    After this configuration, I am able to post document. Can you pls check Accounting entry in the attachment and let me know if this process is correct.


    and I would like to know why Account assignment are derived to Bank A/c, though I am using standard Splitting Method 0000000012.

    Issue was that number ranges are not maintained for Non-Leading ledger. As I was running F110, I could not simulate General Ledger view. I came to know this error when I was posting in FB50.
