i am getting this error "Item category 04000 is missing (obligatory in accounting transaction 1000/0001)" while trying to make payment of Output Vat which is collected at the time of sales. The accounting entry which i am trying to post is (through T.code: F-07)
Output Vat Dr.
Bank Outgoing cr.
For Output Vat GL i assigned Item Category 5100 and for Bank Outgoing GL is 1000
It is urgent. Please tell me why this error is coming and how to rectify it.
Pls check the follwing settings whtr it is applied?
1. whther ur document splitting is activated???
2. if yes then GL account for outgoing bank should be assigned to item category 4000 bcoz it is treated as cash or bank account by SAP. as u have outgoing account as Balance sheet account and u have assigned it to the item category 1000 so u r getting the error..
just u try my solution. assign the gl for outgoing account to item category 4000
