Function documentation Document Entry  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


When you enter documents, the system checks whether you have entered the minimum account assignments (such as document date, posting date, document type, posting key, account number, and amount). If you enter a key that is not defined in the system, the system issues an error message. You first need to correct your entry before you can continue. These checks prevent input errors as well as inconsistent or incomplete entries.

The debits and credits of an entered document must produce a zero balance for you to be able to post the document. If they produce a zero balance, the system updates the account balances. If they do not produce a zero balance, you can hold or park the document until it is complete, without updating the G/L account balances.


You can use the following functions when you enter documents:

      Holding of Documents

      Document Simulation

      Parking of Documents

      Document Parking for Specific Ledgers


You cannot park documents for the closing process.
