Conversion of Accounting to SAP S/4HANA

Reports for the Before-After Comparison

The migration is supported from a technical point of view by many programs and checks. From a business perspective, the technical checks are not sufficient.

In the migration project several stakeholders must be involved:

  • Internal auditors
  • External auditors

They have to outline and verify the following reconciliations for comparisons:

  • Financial statement
  • Account balances
  • Asset history sheet

SAP recommends following reports for the before-after comparison:

  • Ledger comparison (transaction GCAC)
  • Financial statement (program RFBILA00)
  • Asset history sheet (program RAGITT_ALV01)
  • Depreciation run – planned (program RAHAFA_ALV01)
  • Totals report for cost centers (transaction S_ALR_87013611)
  • Sales order selection (program RKKBSELL)
  • G/L account balances (program RFSSLD00)
  • General ledger line items list (program RFSOPO00)
  • Compact document journal (program RFBRLJ00)
  • Vendor sales (program RFKUML00)
  • Vendor open item list sales (program RFKEPL00)
  • Customer sales (program RFDUML00)
  • Customer open item list (program RFDEPL00)
  • Customer recurring entry original documents (program RFDAUB00)
  • Cost centers: actual/plan/variance (transaction GR55 with report-group 1SIP) 

You have to make a proposal that is equally acceptable to all parties. You do not have to run all the reports mentioned.

There should be no postings after extracting data for any planned comparisons. Otherwise, all reporting snapshots have to be repeated.

Postings are not permitted in the system after installing SAP S/4HANA until the end of migration. Remember to cancel all periodic and planned jobs.

In one of the next Newsletter, we will describe the Preparing for Business Partner Adoption.
