WBS: Budget Availability, Settlement to AUC, Direct Settlement vs Multilevel settlement

Dear Gurus,

I'm posting this after thoroughly going all the related posts. But none has the answer.

I'm experiencing the problem as described in the SAP note: 0000159850.

I'm trying to settle the costs in WBS to AuC asset which should be auto generated during first settlement rule. But the problem is, the system is checking for the available budget in upper level WBS while settling and since there is no available budget in the upper level(as it's already distributed to the bottom, the one which I'm trying to settle) it's showing the 'Budget not available error'. There are several solutions here as described below.

  1. Deactivate the Budget availability control check before settlement.
  2. Include the cost element to the 'exempt cost element list' according to above SAP note.
  3. Execute direct settlement instead of multilevel settlement

My solution of interest is point 3 above. Is it possible to use 'direct settlement' option for settlement to AuC? Does anybody know how we can decide whether the settlement via CJ88 is 'direct settlement' or 'multilevel settlement'?

Please help me out.

    Hi Mahesh,

    Just for my understanding.

    As per your issue, you are trying to settle cost from WBS to AuC, but in the sap note 0000159850, it was settling cost within project between WBS element. I feel both are different.

    Can you confirm the same ?

      Dear Terence,

      Thanks a lot for your help! The issue is solved now. The SAP note explains the issue correctly and I applied the same solution by deactivating AA postings to WBS.

    Did you activated your budget "Over all" or "Annual" in your settings in "Availability control activation types" ?

    What is your "Activation type" in "Availability control activation types" ?

    If you assign "Over all " here system will check budget against "Over all Budget" values only.

    Could you kindly check these parameters in your "Budget profile" assigned to this project?
