Financials Expert Explains When and How Not to Split if Document Splitting is Active

This article shows how to avoid document splitting on items where this action is not required.

Dedham, MA, September 03, 2011 --( Financials Expert posts a new article, “When and How Not to Split if Document Splitting Is Active” to its knowledgebase.

This article provides instructions on how to create balance sheets by organizational units rather than company code by Document splitting. Many line items such as vendor, customer, tax, discount, or bank are split due to their characteristics of being profit centered or segmented. Yet splitting these items is not always the best action to take.

SAP ERP Central Component (SAP ECC) 6.0 enables you to prevent document splitting on specific line items. This becomes important when items may not only have no need to be split but may be counter functional to the process. Bob Croce, product director of SAPexperts comments, “This article shows how to avoid document splitting on items where this action is not required.”

The article is written by Manish Dharnidharka, Director, SAP, PwC.
