Notification that G/L Account Master Data Changes Are Not Possible

During daily business, you create and change G/L accounts and transport the changes to your production system on a regular basis. However, during certain time frames, for example, when a system is being upgraded, changes are not possible. At such times, the Copy button is not active in the apps for creating and changing G/L account master data. To more clearly notify you that changes are not possible in such a situation, a corresponding message is now displayed in the apps, next to the Copy button. These apps are affected:
  • Manage Operating Chart of Accounts

  • Manage G/L Account Master Data

  • Manage Chart of Accounts
