Restrict value type 4 posting against a particular WBS

Hi friends,

There is a scenario, where we want to restrict actual postings i.e. VT=4 for a particular WBS element whose user status XXXX is activated.

Please share your ideas if it is possible through validation or user status, though I have tried it through user status but not successful.

With Regards,

Soubhagya Rout

    Hi Dear

    since you have used the user status let'say "VT04" you can use a new validation in GGB0->Cost Accounting and write some code that will use function

    STATUS_TEXT_EDIT to read the status of the wbs element.

    The user status will be in the LINE parameter of the function.

    If "VT04" status is contained in the status of the wbs element you have to disallow the respective actual posting (VT=4) and produce an error message to your user.

    I hope it helps

    Hi,

    Have you tried configure business transaction for your user status? You have your user status XXXX --> if you click on it you have several business transaction :

    Create billing element, Good issue delivery, Good movement... etc You have to detect all of them that generate a real posting ( value type = 04) and forbide them.

    Hi Soubhagya,

    I believe user status with forbidding business transaction certainly will not let you post actual cost on the object.

    Since you have already stated that its been tried and not working, can you share what are the objects selected to forbid the posting of actuals.

    Thanks,

    • Hi Sudhakar,

      I have tried with forbidden transaction Post goods issue, Fi posting and goods issue delivery but nothing happened.

      But what Panagiotis has mentioned in his reply that might be helpful but it needs help from FI CO consultant which is not that easy in my case for certain reason.

      I am just trying to find out any enhancement through which this can be possible.

      With Regards,

      Soubhagya

    Hi Rout,

    We can very well restrict the actual posting to a particular WBS through user status.

    Define the authorization code in customizing and assign them in your user status profile.

    Also create new roles using the authorization code defined earlier (BASIS help is required)

    Assign this role to the user and it works.

    I am not able to insert the screen to show you how i have done it.
