Item 001 WBS element PI/xxxx.aa/nnn budget exceeded



When trying to release Invoice (MIRO) 391-1, PO # 4506266218 item 10 & 20, Amount 4.251,26, (tax amount 510,15), the following error appears:

“Item 001 WBS element PI/xxx.12/nnn budget exceeded” and detail: “In document item 001 WBS PI/xxxx.12/nnn budget for WBS PI/xxxx.12/nnn

for fiscal year 2013 was exceeded by 10.362,42 BRL”.

In trans code CJ31, the value “Assigned” is greater than "Budget" for 10.377,37 BRL.

Question > error budget was exceeded due to "Assigned" being greater than "Budget". What is the reason for this negative difference occur?

SAP OSS Notes 696362 and 178837 give clues about possible causes of the calculated values for Assigned. But we find no evidences for Project PI/xxxx.12/nnn to justify the value of Assigned in the S_ALR_87013558 reports and other transactions as

CJID> settlements made to the project> $ 236,540.46 USD & 457,672.96 BRL;

CJI3> Individual Real Costs> $ 34,289.31 USD & 69,909.96 BRL; and

CJI5> Individual commitment> $ 185,852.40 USD & 388,436.45 BRL.

I tried reconstructing the availability control using the transaction CJEN but still not able to post the invoice

Can You please guide with this ?

Thanks & Regards,
