Can any one help how to wirte substitution rule for business area in gl line item.
Our client rqiured Business area in all GL account. IN FSG we configured BA as mandatory in all FSG.
While doing Billing Doc getting error "Field Bus. Area is a required field for G/L account".
Kindly help me how to capture BA in gl line item automatically.
Thanks in Advance,
You can assign Business Area with the combination of Plant and Division (assigned on material master)
SPRO-->IMG-->Enterprise Structure-->Assignment-->Logistics General-->Assign Business Area to Plant/Valuation Area and Division.
Please check if settings are already maintained.
Hope this helps!!!
Refer below Oss Note
SAP Note 400912 - Business area is required entry for G/L account
167912 - Substitution call-up points for sales order/billing document
In the New GL with Document Splitting, the Business Area is derived from the originating expense. For Document Type RV assign the transaction variant 0200 and for RE assign the transaction variant 0300. This is done in the path:
IMG>Financial Accounting (New)>General Ledger Accounting (New)>Business Transactions>Document Splitting> Classify Document Type for Document Splitting
Make sure that for transaction variants 0200 and 0300, item categories for with holding tax and tax on sales/purchases are assigned. Also assign the correct ietm categories to GL accounts.

Actually we migrated to New GL and in document splitting made business area a mandatory field.
During the migration all the open items were updated with Business Area.
BUT, one document got missed.
NOW, we want to clear that document. During clearing we are getting error that mandatory field Business Area not filled.
Since, post New GL Business Area is a mandatory field.
