Scenarios are assigned to ledgers and determine which fields are updated when postings are received from different modules.

Standard SAP comes with 6 scenarios. You can’t create customer specific scenarios. You can, however, use custom fields if required while assigning scenario to GL.

All six scenarios can be assigned to a ledger; however this will impact the performance. More totals records will be created in Total table and writing/retrieving data will be slower.

Data Entry vs General Ledger view

In New G/L each document will have 2 views for display. Data Entry view is same as Classic G/L display. General Ledger view is enhanced view and displays fields updated because of assigned scenarios. You can also choose ledger here to see document in each ledger.
