SAP Configuration - Define Chart of Accounts

Chart of Accounts is a structured list of General Ledger (GL) Accounts which we are using to report our ledger postings. For maintaining one controlling area to several company codes it is mandatory that the same Chart of Accounts will be used by all company codes in that controlling area. In this configuration we are defining the main language and the length of the GL accounts.
