15. Account assignment in SRM

Learn the response to the fifteenth question in SearchSAP.com's exclusive SRM quiz.

15. What statements pertaining to account assignment in SRM are correct?

a) A real-time validation occurs in the SAP back-end system.
b) A G/L account has to be assigned to the product category for the validation of the accounts.
c) A local validation in EBP independent of a back-end system is also possible.
d) The only account assignment categories available in SRM are Cost Center (CC) and Asset (AS).

ANSWER(S): A, C

In the EBP, account assignment validation can be done in the following environments:

• In the Enterprise Buyer Professional (local validation of FI data).
• In the back-end system (real-time validation of FI data).
• You can choose not to validate at all.

In the configuration you can enter the G/L account to be used based on product category and account assignment category.

The account assignment categories used in the EBP system are Asset (AS) – the local counterpart of the backend account assignment category "A". Cost Center (CC) - the local counterpart of the back-end account assignment category "K". FI - the local counterpart of the back-end account assignment category "K". NET - the local counterpart of the back-end account assignment category "N". Order (OR) - the local counterpart of the back-end account assignment category "F". SO - the local counterpart of the back-end account assignment category "C". And WBS - the local counterpart of the back-end account assignment category "P."
