Service Order Costing Errors Data Replication CRM- ECC

Hello Al,

We are creating a service order and the same needs to get replicated as the Sales Order in SAP ECC, however the system is throwing costing error's(Screen Shot Attached)

I searched the forum however no luck

Following configurations have been performed in the SAP CRM side

1) Billing Unit is assigned to the Sales/Service Org

2) Billing Unit is also assigned to the company code

3) Item Category is TAD and the same is a service relevant item.

In the SAP ECC.

1) The profit centre is maintained under the same company code

2) Under the base customization Integration with Other SAP Components-Customer Relationship Management-Settings for Service Processing-Establish Controlling Type Controlling Level and Controlling Scenarios the no controlling is selected

3) Profit Centres get picked in the sales document using Substitution Rules I have checked in my quality and production system the same rule exists.

We raised an SAP OSS Message for the same however no luck, I tried to replicate the same scenario in quality environment and with no controlling as per the second screen shot above and the document gets replicated successfully, hence request your urgent inputs on the same

Kind Regards

    Hi Atul,

    It seems the profit center profile is not active therefore profit center is not getting determine for service order.

    I would suggest to check the service related profile is active or not ?

    Please follow below thread .

    • Hello Prem and Julin,

      Thanks for all your valuable inputs, we resolved the issue and hence closing the threadplease find the following points.

      1)On debugging we found out that we had put some enhancements on the profit center substitution rule which uses division, the new rule which we created was without division hence we were getting the errors we then modified the new substitution rule in SAP ECC by including the division to determine the profit center

      2) In the SCRM node for costing integration there were two line items for the transaction type one with no costing and second Single Object controlling, we deleted the line no controlling through customization(as per my screen shot above) and once this was done the document was getting replicated without errors.

      Kind Regards
