and hit F8.

What we get is a list of Journals or Documents. From the list let us note down the Document Number.

Second Step, Get the Document Journal

SAP FI Standard Reports Now we need for a specific document in Debit Credit Format with GL Account Code and GL Account Description. This we can get by inputting one more field, the Document Number to the parameters already entered. Let us select say, 1900006225 document which we want to see in regular Debit Credit Format. Parameter selections will be:

  • Company Code 1000
  • Document Number 1900006225
  • Fiscal Year 2004
  • Leger 0L
  • Posting date 01.01.2004 to 30.06.2004

Note, when we give the Document number we should not give GL Account Code. Why? Because if we give GL Account Code as one of the parameters, we will not get both Debit and Credit entries. The output will be only the Debit or Credit pertaining to the given GL Account Code.

Run the report to get the regular Journal Format:

When we run the report for two or more documents, we will get the Debit and Credit totals information end of the list.
