    Hi Varun,

    Check whether the Child WBS elements have any negative budget in CJ30 / CJ31.

      In CJ31 In distrubted column it showing positive value for particular WBS element and for lower level wbs element.

      But when I am accessing report 13559 it showing negative.

    • Hi Varun,

      This can occur due to the low level WBS element are posted with one negative value. On calculating to the top if this is more than positive values, this will result the negative value in top level. This is due to calculation.

      Have you executed the report BPDIST03 mentioned by Varshal earlier.

      This particular report is to reconstruct the distributed budget values, may be this can solve your issue.

      Do run all the 3 reports and let us know if its corrected

    Hi Varun,

    inconsistencies sometimes occur due to the hierarchical structure of projects

    can you start by running transaction CJEN and see if this corrects this issue?

    let us know if that has made any difference

    thanks and regards,
