We are trying to standardize GL accounts in the operational chart across the globe while still permitting local flexibility on use of accounts. In other ERP's, there is a concept of a "subaccount" that is related to, but distinct from, the "prime" GL account. Is there a way to accomplish this design objective in SAP?

(Note that we are NOT talking about special purpose ledgers, non-leading/local ledgers in the new GL, bank subaccounts, or utilizing other non-account data elements.  We would like to avoid using internal orders wherever possible.)
