I am working on putting together an SAP audit program, and need to ensure that I include controls around the reconciliation between the AP and AR subledgers and the general ledger. I know that there are reconciliation accounts setup and that a document posted in one of the subledgers will automatically be posted in the G/L, and think that this principle alone would greatly reduce the number of controls around this process. Are there instances where AP/AR transactions would not post to the subledger (and hence not post to the general ledger)?
Also, I know that the reports RFKOPO00 (A/P open items) and RFDOPO00 (A/R open items) can be run and used to reconcile the reports. How would you know that all AP and AR transactions would be reported? What types of non-reconciling items would appear in these reports and what would be the process for resolving such items?
Please let me know when you get a chance. Your help on these issues would be greatly appreciated!
You could try to confirm the total of Open line items in FBL1N/FBL3N by line item level and total level. you can also use FS10N as well.
Normally the balance in reports you mentioned should be equel to balance in FBL1N/FBL3N and FS10N.
With Best Regards,
Thanks for the help with this issue. Just a couple of additional questions: Would all AP and AR transactions appear in one of the reports noted in your answer? What types of non-reconciling items would appear in the reports RFKOPO00 (A/P open items) and RFDOPO00 (A/R open items), and what would be the process for resolving such items?
Please let me know when you can.
Great! So...just to confirm...I can run FBL1N/FBL3N, Select Noted Items and Parked items in the TYPE options, and find ALL items posted to the AP and AR subledgers? That listing could then be compared to the items posted in the G/L and the differences would be the "non-reconciling" items?
