I learnt that :
Sales Direct Entries may be posted in FI without posting in SD/MM.
Sales entries must always be posted only through SD process. If this is NOT done (for example freight rate received from third party freight forwarders), then only FI people should know how to reconcile and NOT sd people. Hence I recommend posting your query in FI forum after closing this thread.
My question is , during month-end closing how should FI or accounting address the above direct posting issues?
Apparently, such practice is not right.
There is no trace of the sales in SD MM. There is no corresponding billing doc in SD MM but found in FI .
How should this situation be handled as best practice?
I am BI person but found this issue with FI data not reconciled with SD MM.
I am not sure how the month-end closing was done when there is such data. Yes, the problem was found AFTER month was closed and I loaded the data to BI.
It is good practice to post all sales through SD if the module is being used. The reality is that there will be exceptions or minor processes where the sales are not processed through SD.
What is needed is to ensure that you can distinguish between SD sales and thoose posted directly in FI. This is done by using different Document types in FI . The SAP Standard is RV for SD and DR for FI.
What is the fastest easiest way to find out which FI direct entries were posted without corresponding Sales / Billing documents created ?
Is there any standard report or reports available in oss?
Currently, our other interfacing systems are having problem with data due to direct entries where there is no corresponding Sales / Billing docs posted. This is causing a lot of time investigating what entries caused the reconciliation problem.
Your help would make my life easier.
