Projects/Orders Cost Settlement COPA

Hi Experts,

We have a business requirement to settle (PS) projects relevant costs in COPA. we are using Costing Based Profitability Analysis.

I have followed following steps to do so but got no luck;

- Created one Value Field on which the data should be settled.

- Assigned source Cost Element Group on PA Transfer Structure (E1). The Cost Element Group includes complete P&L Gls.

- Assigned the same Value Field as Target on PA Transfer Structure (E1).

- Checked Settlement Profile (60 - Networks) which is used for Projects Settlement, PA Transfer Structure (E1) was assigned there and all indicators    were marked under Indicators tab.

Every thing seems perfect but data is not flowing to COPA.

I tried two approaches;

- Straight forward settlement to Cost Center and checked whether COPA Doc derived? the result is NO.

- Assigned PSG along with CTR under settlement rule of particular WBS and executed settlement to Cost Center and WBS and checked whether COPA Doc created? the result is YES but then no Accounting Doc (Financial Entry gets generated) which is wrong.

Can anyone please guide me where i am mistaken?

    Hi Zain,

    Have you tried to create a settlement rule for WBS element to PSG only and settle the WBS?

    Best regards,

      Hi Miya,

      I tried your suggested solution but then system does not post Profitability Document that means again only 2 docs (Accounting & Controlling).

      I am conceptually confused that If system can settle production variances caused by Production Order to PSG as well as Accounting & Controlling then why not the case in Projects Settlement?

      Do we really need to maintain PSG under settlement rule? as we are not maintaining any settlement rule in case of Production Order Settlement. May be i am heading to the wrong way....

      Please guide.
