Reduce Potential SAP General Ledger Migration Errors with Validation for Document Splitting

Enable validation of document splitting in the SAP General Ledger and identify potential issues you could face early on. That way, you can take appropriate actions and prevent the accumulation of error documents while also improving the data quality for migration.
Key Concept

Validation for document splitting simulates document splitting in the classic General Ledger during phase 1 of migration. You can set the validation level to save the log of information and issue warning or error messages if transactions cause inconsistent document splitting.

SAP provides migration tools to perform the migration of your financial data from the classic General Ledger to the SAP General Ledger. Considering the sensitivity associated with migrating financial data in production environments, SAP must be involved. To achieve a high degree of safety and offer quality assurance in the migration projects, SAP has a mandatory service called SAP General Ledger Migration.

I’ll explain how you can use one feature — validation for document splitting — to reduce the number of errors during your migration.
