Internal Order Settlement Issue

Hello All Experts,

I am running a settlement of Internal Order where I have defined settlement should happen on secondary cost element via "Allocation Structure" where By Cost Element is NOT TICKED and I have given a cost element with category 21 and receiver is Cost Centre.

After running a settlement when I see the accounting document why the system has not credited the Secondary Cost Element ? Even though I have maintained secondary cost element in allocation structure.

In, accounting entry - system has Debited and Credited same account instead of secondary cost element. I understand the secondary cost element is part of CO specifically and not for FI but still there must be some effect secondary cost should have ! OR there should NOT be any accounting entry.

Please correct me if I am wrong here, and please provide guidance on this.

Regards,

Sharvari Joshi.

    Hi Thomas,

    I think I have got the solution. I have deactivated the below check box from system and it stopped transferring to FI.

    Am I looking at the right place ?

    Also system debited and credited the same Cost Element after KO88- See the screenshot from KSB5.

      Just a comment here: The CO settlement document wit secondary cost element will take place irrespective of the fact that you use CO-FI real time reconciliation or not. It is the FI posting that is generate by the CO-FI reconcilliation.

    Hello Sharvari,

    In fact before new GL is active the system, in the classical accounting, during settlement without receiver G/L account, will not trigger any FI document generation.

    Only when New GL is active, FI would like to have this information passing to FI maybe for reporting purpose etc., even for CO internal postings (settlement, allocation) starts to pass the information to FI.

    And it is purely basing on FI transaction code:FAGLCOFIIMG(Variants for Real-Time Integration CO->FI) is not made. There is no settings in Frame "Selection of Document Lines for Real-Time Integration CO->FI". It can define in which situation, system will pass the information to CO and the reconciliation account is defined in OK17 which is used in FI document.

    Best regards,

    Jason

    Hi Sharvari,

    The FI posting is generate by the "automatic reconciliation ledger" that triggers FI postings together with CO allocations in order to keep CO and FI aligned.

    Customizing of the reconciliation ledger can be found under: Financial Accounting (New)/Financial Accounting Global Settings (New)/Ledgers/Real-Time Integration of Controlling with Financial Accounting.

    Regards

      Dear Thomas,

      Thanks for the reply. Can you please tell me what exactly triggers in this node and config part which creates the FI document.

      Because I have another system where I tried this same scenario and it doesn't created any accounting document.

      Seems strange, your guidance will be very helpful on this.

      Regards,

      Sharu.
