Budget/release was changed - rebuild availability control

Hi,

i'm working on PS module on a project and once i'm trying to copy my budget using IMCCP3 transaction, i've got the following warning:

Message no. AP_COPY010

Diagnosis

Automatic budget adjustments were carried out for measures (orders or WBS elements), or budget releases of WBS elements were automatically changed.

However, there was no automatic adjustment to the data of the availability control.

This is the case, even if activation type 1 (automatic activation during budget allocation) is set for availability control in the budget profile of the measure.

Procedure

Rebuild the data of the availability control for the measures that were processed, if necessary. To do so, you can use transaction CJBN (WBS elements) or transaction KO31 (orders).

The availability control has the be activated manualy , and my purpose is to get it activated automaticaly once I copy my budget.

Is there any clue why I've got this warning or how can I fix it ; to get the availability control activated with the copy budget transaction?

Best regards

    Hi,

    Reference to SAP Note:http://service.sap.com/sap/support/notes/1245966

    Copied from the Note for Quick reference:

         "Transactions for mass changes of budgets do not activate the availability
         control. In particular, this affects transactions IMCOC3, IMCOC4, IMCCP3,
         IMCCP4, IMCRC3, IMCRC4, IMPBA3 and IMPBA4."

    Solution:

    • Set up a batch job to activate the Availability control daily. Preferably when the Business transactions on WBS are lowest. (Program Name: BPINDX00). This is required if the manual AVAC activation is not expected. Bear in mind till the time the batch job activates AVAC, budgetory control will not be in place.

    Hope it helps!

    Thanks and Regards,

    Hi Ismael,

    You need to run the CJBN for the projects for which you have run the IMCCP3 for copying the plan values to Budgets.

    Refer to SAP note 1245966 it clearly mentions that mass updates of Budgets will not activate AVAC.

    This is standard SAP system behaviour. As it is also clearly mentioned in the log when you have run the transaction.. 😊

    Hope it helps

    Regards

      Hi Tushar,

      I've maintained the tolerance limit budget associated to the budget profile to:

      -80% : with warning message (1)

      -100%: Error message (3)
