How to create Milestone Billing plan for VA41(Contracts)

Hello All,

I looked for the solution to create milestone billing plan in SDN, didn't find any.

We are doing conversion from SAP to SAP. Creating billing contracts through BAPI.

We have following item categories Periodic and milestone.

When I create periodic items it creates billing plan number (gets Contract start date/end date, calculates billing plan and update in FPLA/FPLT through config or automatically).

But when I go for Milestone it asks for project or WBS.....just for your information we are not passing any of these...due to requirement.

But it creates billing plan no without passing project or WBS. These two is possible in VA41/VA42

I believe Milestone item category cannot calculate billing plan based on contract start/end date. we have to specify list of dates and values due to its category.

In 'BAPI_CONTRACT_CRAETEFROMDATA' we do not have segment to pass billing plan data.

So far I have found only FM's to update billing plan with billing plan no.

Question:

1. How will I create Milestone billing plan(any FM/BAPI/IDoc)

2. Is there any config possible to achieve this scenario?

Please suggest.

Thank You,

Shweta

    Hi

    Check in configuration settings for incompletion log in OVA2, at Item level there should be setting maintain for Projects/WBS elements, you can remove the settings for the same.

      Hi Amit,

      I checked it and there is no setting for them.

      For this scenario we do not have to deal with PROJECT/WBS.

      Without that also it creates billing plan.

      Thank You,

    Hello,

    in transaction OVBM you can create and assign reference billing plan (that is a model) to the milestone billing plan type.

    Best regards,

    Ivano.

      Hi Ivano,

      I believe we can not directly assign billing plan no. to item level, its gets generated internally and update FPLNR in FPLA, FPLT.

      I do not have billing plan number I need to create it. Is there any way to create it.

      Thank You.

    Hello,

    Last solution is to write BDC 😔. Still solutions are welcome if there is any?

    Thanks,

      Hi Shweta,

      Just curious if you were ever able to find a BAPI to assign billing plan no. at item level?

      We have a similar requirement for Milestone Billing Plan creation although we are creating SD Billing Contracts via an interface from a CRM Provider Order. A BDC is not an option for us.

      Thanks in advance for any assistance with this.

      Best Regards,

      Paul
