Project settlement to AUC issue



We have a major problem relating to the Project System and closing WBS elements to AUCs.

Anybody know how to settle to the AUC without closing out the AUC?

We need to be able to settle a WBS element to the AUC on a piece-meal basis over a period of several months or even more than a year.

SAP simply will not allow settlement to the AUC without closing it, UNLESS you use the amount method. This works OK if the project is in the same currency as that of the Controlling Area. However, if not, the accountants have to manually translate amounts given to them to settle into the settlement currency, which of course, SAP also forces settlements to be in CO area currency. This causes a lot of inaccuracy.

I've tried all kind of ways to deal with this, but so far nothing in IMG or business menu works.

This is a common business process and it's might hard to believe that SAP doesn't support it.
