The use of Journal Entry (JE) posting in SAP FI is to take a batch, validate it for consistency, and create FI documents and post those entries in various line item accounts needed for subsequent business processing.
JE Posting is a process that, with a few exceptions, runs “behind the scenes” and is the heart of Journal Entry. It receives journal entry data (representing financial transactions) from the PRA modules (Valuation, Revenue Distribution, etc.), and summarizes them in batches and posts them to the PRA JE line item tables and to SAP FI.
Journal Entry Posting is the link between the journal entries coming from PRA applications and the FI documents and JE line item table items that are created.
