|accounting document (FI)|
The accounting documents record changes in values in a company code arising from accounting transactions.
They consist of one or more line items (postings), each of which represents an individual transaction posted to an account.
When posting an accounting document, the SAP system updates the transaction figures in the accounts to which the document is posted.
An accounting document is a representation within the SAP System of the document (for example, an invoice) that triggered the posting.
