SAP FI-MM Integration (OBYC) Part III
We have already seen the various Transactions under OBYC i.e. FI-MM Integration. But in the previous posts we have not seen the Transaction GBB which is used specifically for Offsetting Accounts under various transactions. In this post we will see how the Transaction GBB is configured.
The Transaction GBB is basically divided into various logical General Modifiers which are explained below:
This General Modifier is used for order settlement. In case of Production/Process Order General Ledger account under this General Modifier is debited or credited based on whether the Production Variance is debit or credit.
General Ledger under this General Modifier is to be created as Primary Cost Element i.e. category “1”
This General Modifier is used when FG/SFG production entry is posted. In other words this General Modifier comes into picture in case of goods receipts for orders (without account assignment) and for order settlement if AUA is not maintained.
General Ledger Account under this General Modifier is credited and Inventory Account (under Transaction BSX) is debited.
for initial entry of stock balances. This General Modifier is used for initial stock entry specifically during Go Live phase.
In order to avoid misuse, the General Ledger accounts assigned to this General Modifier should be blocked for posting. This prevents posting of values as initial stock.
This General Modifier is used for assignment of General Ledger account to record the expenditure/income from inventory differences (physical inventory difference).
General Leger account assignment for Cost of Goods Sold “COGS” in case of Make to order scenario (the account is not a cost element).
General Leger account assignment for Cost of Goods Sold “COGS” in case of Make to stock scenario (the account is Cost Element).
In case of subcontracting this General Modifier is used to record consumption from stock of material provided to vendor.

General Ledger accounts for for scrapping/destruction of material
