Starting with Release 4.0A, you can assign global activities to a ledger directly from ledger master data maintenance. This activity assignment affects all company codes/global companies in the system and offers advantages to those customers who always need to work with the same activities for all company codes or global companies.
To activate through-posting in a ledger for a special company code or global company, this company code or global company must be assigned to the ledger. If activities were directly assigned to a ledger and the corresponding company code/global company assignment is missing, no through-posting is made for the company code/global company. There will also be no error message if the company code/global company is not assigned, in contrast to the previous system reaction when activities were assigned directly to a ledger. (You could do this on the level of ledger-company code-activity or ledger-global company-activity).
