Mass Copy of GL and Expenditure Account IDs.
I want to create a new department in Finance and it is a 2 step process. 1. Create GL Acct #. and 2. Create Expenditure Acct #. To create all the acct numbers for a new department is very time consuming. There should be an easy way to duplicate or mass copy acct numbers.
Below is how another software handles what I am asking for...
The "Copy chart of accounts/company code" method is most useful when your chart of accounts is only slightly different from SAP's standard chart of accounts.
Using the copy from method, you can create as many G/L accounts as you like. With this process, you use an already existing G/L account as a reference. A copying process allows the system to transfer all specifications from the reference account to the accounts that need to be created. If the chart of accounts-dependent segment of the account that needs to be created does not already exist, you can also change the account number and G/L texts of the reference account.
Thank you for your suggestion. The easiest way to add new sub ledger type accounts is to pull up an existing account within that fund prior to clicking add. The original account will be used a template when linking the account to the general ledger. There shouldn’t be too many accounts that need to be changed. Please contact support if you have any additional questions.
