Background documentation Specifications for Posting Key and Special G/L Indicator  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

When there is a special function for posting a special G/L transaction, you no longer have to enter a posting key and often not a special G/L indicator either when you enter a document. Instead, you define this data in the system. The system determines this information via the special function that you use to enter the document. This simplifies the entry procedure and prevents errors.


When you post a down payment request, you do not enter either a posting key or a special G/L indicator. The system determines this data automatically.

Posting keys and special G/L indicators are already specified in the system. You need only change these specifications if you have defined your own posting keys or special G/L indicators, or if you have changed the standard posting keys.
