Sort Key Purpose

Can anyone clarify me on the following issues


1. While posting billing document in TC: VF01 on what base system will trigger GL accounts. I know it is from VKOA but my doubt is how system knows this GL gets posted debit and another GL gets posted credit. Look at an example on the following entry...


At the time of billing for Sales:


Customer A/c Dr

VAT Payable A/c Dr

To Sales


At the time of sales returns


Sales Returns A/c Dr

To Customer

To VAT Payable


2. What is the purpose Sort Key & Definition


Thanks in advance

    Hi Deepu,



    1.  In VFO1 we are used table 1, it contains customer group, material group and sales revenue account determination.

    through this assignment sales ledger will be update.


    2. while doing sales order we used to mentioned customer number, through sales order we are delivery the material to customer. Through this delivery order we have to raise the bill, so automatically the customer will debit according to sap and stanadard accounting rules.


    3. sort key : it is used for only for document assignment.
