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.

Posting keys in SAP R3 FI work at the line item level. Posting keys serve three main functions in SAP accounting
- Posting keys control as to which type of account the line item in the document will be posted to.
- Secondly, posting keys control whether the line item will be posted as a debit or a credit.
- Laslty, posting keys help in determining field statuses for additional details.
posting key values depend upon the area in SAP FI.
General Ledger Transactions - "Debit" is posting key 40 and "Credit" is posting key 50.
Customer Invoices - "Debit" is posting key 01 and "Credit" is posting key 50.
Vendor Invoices - "Debit" is posting key 40 and "Credit" is posting key 31.
