What is the difference between active and passive document splitting?
Please share your valuable answer.
thanks in advance.
Passive Document splitting is where the account assignments of the line items to be cleared are transferred to the clearing items, in simple terms if i say you have an customer invoice of INR1000 in which there are two products divided on segments A and B, so when you will receive the payment the payment will automatically be divided into the ratio of the segments of the invoice when you post the clearing document. While for Active Document splitting you have to define specific rules for the split whereby gl accounts have to be assigned in the configuration for the spit, apart from you have zero balance clearing where in the line items balance to zero.
While posting transaction we have to give bus area, profit centre in debit line or credit line.then the system will update the other line, this is called active splitting.
Passive splitting means the values will be captured from invoice levels to the rest of process. ex: purchase order. The system picks a business area from division and profit centre from material master. so the same will be updated to migo, miro and vendor payment.
Therefore we don't need to specify everytime while doing these transactions.
The document spilting will be done based on spiliting rules of refarance document ex; The vendor payment document will be spilited based on spiliting characterstic of main invoice ex; expense a/c ba 1 expense a/c ba1 (ba means business area ) to vendor payble account (ba2) to vendor payable a/c (ba2) the doc posted based on document spiliting rules business tranation and variant assian to the document types
