FI MM Integration in SAP

The movement type in MM defines the way accounts in FI are to be posted. So we need to do FI-MM integration in such a way that SAP can easily recognize the general ledger accounts from such movement types

FI-MM integration is done through transaction code OBYC. Or else you can do FI MM integration in SAP by using following path; 

SPRO > Material Management > Valuation and Account Assignment > Account Determination > Account Determination without wizard > Configure Automatic Postings

In OBYC, transaction types are defined with a link to the movement type.

To these transaction types we assign GL accounts by double clicking on it.

These GL accounts are derived when the specific movement types are used in Material Management module under a plant.
