Inappropriate Status at WO Settlement

Hi Experts

A customer of mine runs very standard EAM processes, and they have 1 work order that cannot settle. In KO88 we get the message that the order is already settled, then in the Detailed Log, this order is marked with an "Inappropriate Status".

I have found several threads and explanations, but none seem to quality for this order. The order is very basic - a PM01 SAP standard, with one operation. There were 2 manually created Purchase Req's, account assigned to the Work Order, converted to PO, and fully receipted. Both PO's are marked as Delivery Complete, and Final Invoice. There is no variance between PO, GR and IV in terms of qty and $. The WO status is marked as DLV, GMPS and CNF.

The settlement rule for the order has a WBS element as receiver. This WBS and the Project it related to is REL status, and is allowed to accept postings. Other orders have settled to this WBS successfully.

The Work order is currently in REL status, but even in TECO status it doesn't settle. The order is not locked, or flagged for deletion.

Via KOC4 they have determined this is the only order with a non-zero balance, from the hundreds of orders they do each month.

Any other suggestions?

    Could you check the report S_ALR_87013015. Please let me know if you have different settlement profile fro different order types.

    What is the status of that WBS element.Check the costing object values of WBS element in"ASSIGNMENT" tab.

    Please post the error screen shot.

    • Dear,

      In this situation hope you are using WBS element for settlement which might be coming directly form Technical object master data.

      Is WBS element is assigned in "Location" tab of maintennace order? if so

      I hope if your order is having settlement receiver as COST CENTER, but due to some exit WBS is triggering.

      Just check , this may help you.
