Special Ledgers’ Transfer to New General Ledger

Only Special Ledgers that are compliant with the new General Ledger can and should be transferred to the new General Ledger. If you use additional currencies in a Special Purpose Ledger and want to replace this Special Purpose Ledger with the new General Ledger, you have to check the currencies used in the Special Purpose Ledger. The migration programs read the data in the original FI document. If the Special Purpose Ledger you want to replace uses a currency that is not contained in the original FI document, you cannot migrate this data to the new General Ledger. In this case, you must keep the relevant Special Purpose Ledger.

Re-Order Point Procedure

The ‘Re-Order Point’ is the level of inventory that triggers material procurement. Once the inventory falls below this level, you need to create the order proposal either manually or automatically by the system.

In the case of the manual re-order point procedure, you will define the reorder point and the safety stock in the material master. On the other hand, in the automatic re-order point procedure, the system will calculate the re-order point and the safety stock based on the next period’s consumption pattern.

What is EAN?

The ‘EAN (International Article Number),’ equivalent to the UPC (Universal Product Code) of the United States, is an international standard number for identifying a material, which SAP allows you to assign (done in the ‘Eng./Design or Units of Measure’ screen) to the materials. The EAN is normally assigned to the manufacturer of a material. Made up of a prefix (to identify the country or company from where the material originates), article number, and a check digit (ensures correctness of an EAN number so that no incorrect entries are scanned or entered into the system).
