Define Account Group

When creating a G/L account, you must specify an account group.

The account group determines:
• the interval in which the account number must be
• which fields are required and optional entries when creating and changing master records
• which fields are suppressed when creating and changing master data.

It enables you to control the layout of screens.

Check and change the standard account groups as needed. If you set up your own charts of accounts, you must specify account groups for them.
