Procedure documentation Changing Parked Documents  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


You can make changes to a parked document and complete it in stages. A large number of header and item fields can be changed during this process, including the amounts.

You can make changes to:

      Individual documents

      Individual items

      Several documents simultaneously using a list

      Other values via the line items

However, you cannot change the currency and company code.


The internal system change rules governing document entry are not used in document parking.



       1.      From the SAP Easy Access screen, choose Accounting Financial Accounting General Ledger/Accounts Receivable/Accounts Payable Document Parked Documents Change.

If you know the document number, enter the company code, document number, and fiscal year.

If you do not know the document number, choose Document List. On the selection screen that appears, enter the appropriate selection criteria and choose Execute. The system then generates a list containing the documents that match these criteria. Place the cursor on the desired document and then choose Edit Select.

       2.      To process the document header, choose Goto Document Header.

To change a line item, select it by double-clicking it. You can change the fields that are highlighted.

You can add new line items.

You can mark line items for deletion by setting the amounts to zero.

You can change the line layout variants in the document overview by choosing Settings Line Layout.

       3.      Save your changes.


If you make changes to the document header (such as to the posting date or fiscal year) by changing the posting date, you can no longer use the old document number.

If you use internal document number assignment, the system changes the document number as soon as a new fiscal year results from changes made to the document header.

If document numbers are assigned externally, you have to assign a new number yourself.
