What is posting key and what does it control?..

Answer / sapsec

Let us understand the business first. A user completes a
document and saves it. In the process the database tables
are updated. The system needs information as to which
tables are to be updated. Therefore each transaction is
truly and correctlt represented. when financial reports are
generated the information is appropriately shown. The
POSTING KEYS control this aspect of the document for a line
item. One key factor is whether a line item is a debit or a
credit? The numerical representation for categories like
debtors / kreditors / assets is a system router.
