Sales Order and WBS


Dear Experts,

Any way to validate the WBS element at Account Assignment( profit Segment) for each line item in an SO?

Please comment on the above question. Please tell if it is programatically or functionally possible to solve the above problem.

I want to validate that if WBS for each line item is not maintained at account assignment ( profit segment level), I want to throw a warning message saying something like 'WBS not maintained'.

    • Hello Vemuri,

      It is indeed we can make the WBS element as mandatory in the sales order item level by Incompletion Log.

      But just want to confirm that will it automatically update the WBS field in the Profit Segment as required by Kinshuk. Do we need any other config to fulfill this requirement?

      Thanks,

      Suman$

    Hey,

    this has to be a piece of custom code - no way of validating it . As the vaildation of the WBS and the budget consumption only happens during invoicing, in case you need to validate it .. it needs to be done in an enhancement in sap !!

    hope this helps.

    Hi Suman,

    Thats what !! the WBS element that we are maintaining at the line item does not get replicated in the Profit Segment with the current customizing settings that Iam having. I am an ABAPer so I dnt know much about customization. One strange thing is that even if we maintain the WBS element in Profit Centre , I am not able to get it in any of the enhancements 😔

    Really donno what to do 😔 😔

    • Hi ,

      Profit segment and WBS are two different cost objects. Even you found an exit to copy WBS to profit segment system will give a dump since this number is not available in Profit segment data base

      May i know the business reason of why you need to copy WBS to profit segment ?
