In the SAP System, distinctions are made between different types of special G/L transaction. These distinctions are made according to business-related and technical factors.
On the business side, a distinction is made between:
· Bills of exchange
· Down payments
· Miscellaneous special G/L transactions, such as guarantees
On the technical side, a distinction is made between:
· Postings with a freely-definable offsetting entry. These include down payment and bill of exchange postings.
· Postings with a preset offsetting entry. These transactions are called statistical postings.
· Postings without an offsetting entry. These procedures are called noted items.
