Cost element category 21 for Overhead

Hi All,

While using costing sheet for calculating OH, can we use the values posted through settlement cost elements -21 as base to calculate overhead.

For example i have WBS settled with SCE 870001 (Type 21) with value 1000 and i want to calculate OH at 10$ on 1000 - 100$.

Yes i can re run ra later and settle it again.

So question is whether type 21 can be used as a base to calculate Overhead using costing sheet.

    I am following this thread interestingly...My view is , OH calculation base is only includes CE cat which are participating in cost postings in CCtr level ...may be primary and secondary. But settlement CE is not used for cost posting to CCtr rather used for settle the cost to other object and these costs are already booked through primary CEs in the sender objects..

    So system is doing rightly

    Dear Aravind,

    Cost elements of every kind can be included in the calculation base for Overhead Costing sheets.

    Also cost elements from cost category 21.

    Kind regards

    • Hi Aravind,

      You have defined correct category for over head posting under credit key. However, in base you can define all cost element categories. You have to group them and assign that group for the base.
