    Hi,

    These are fields which is req. to enter in case if the G/L account no. is unknown for the computer..

    Most of the time it is done in case of consumable materials.ie. for the material which are directly posted forthe consumption..

    for eg..if we enter the acc cat cost center k, then system asks ato enter G/L account which shd be debit at the time of posting..

     

    In the system it is stored at

     

    SPRO > MM > Purchasing > Account Assignment > Maintain Account Assignment Categories

     

    There are also many setting for Item catagory and assignbment cat...it stored inside..

    SPRO > MM > Purchasing > Account Assignment > combination of Item cat/Acct assignment cat

    Hi,

     

    Account assignment category: - A key indicating whether an item is to be assigned to an auxiliary account (such as a cost center). The account assignment category determines which account assignment details are required for the item (for example, cost center or account number).

     

    Configuration: -

     

    SPRO > MM > Purchasing > Account Assignment > Maintain Account Assignment Categories

     

    Activities: -

    1.  Check the attributes of the account assignment categories

    2.  Maintain the account assignment categories to suit your requirements

     

    SPRO > MM > Purchasing > Account Assignment > Define Combination of Item Categories/Account Assignment Categories > If you have created new account categories, you maintain the combinations for the item categories here.

     

    SPRO > MM > Purchasing > Account Assignment > Set Subscreen for Account Assignment (Coding) Block

     

    Activities: -

    1.  Check whether the standard SAP subscreens meet all your requirements.

    2.  Create new subscreens if necessary.

    3.  If necessary, change the priority or the active indicator for the preset subscreens.

     

    SPRO > MM > Purchasing > Account Assignment > Assign Default Values for Asset Class > In this step, you can specify a default asset class for each material group. If you then order a material from the material group and create an asset for the purchase order, the system will insert this default value.

    Account Assignment Category

     

    Material can be purchased as direct and indirect materials. or i can say stock & Non-stock materials. When you purchase Direct material , which is used in production of certain product ,and inventory is maintained , account assignment will be maintained in SAP thr' automatic account determination and you don't need account assignment at the time of PO.Whenever there is a material movement FI posting happens accordingly.

     

    But when you procure Indirect or Non-stock material you need to supply the account assignment category for which the cost of purchase will be incurred.

    For example when you select , Acct assn. cat "k" ( Cost center) you have to supply the COST CENTER and the G/L account number. In this case when you receive the material it will get consumed.

     

    SAP PO can have account assignment categories like

    Asset - A

    Cost center- K

    Order - F

    Project - P etc.

     

    In Other words, Account assignment category describes how the procured material is being used (for eg: Cost Center, Sales Order, etc). It also determines how the accounting entries made when a Gr document or Ir document is posted.

     

    Hope this will help you a lot in understanding.

     

    You can Create Account Assignment categories in Spro.
