SAP PS budget against PO commitment

Hi,

We have created PO with 2000$ against the WBS element but GR is done for 1000$ which is an Actual cost against that particular WBS element. As per Standard SAP, the remaining committed value (1000$) would still be as Assigned budget. Will the system remove the commitment for the remaining balance and make the budget available for other use? Or will the remaining balance remain as committed funds for that particular PO.

My understanding is that, the remaining committed value can be made as Available budget by deactivating AVAC and run CJEN and CJBN and use it for another PO.

Are there any other alternatives rather than deactivating AVAC? Please advice.

    Hi,

    maintaining "delivery complete" would certainly reduce the commitment to zero, but does not add up to budget.

    Hi Srini,

    You have two flags on PO, something like final invoice and full delivery - do not remember exactly the wording.  One of them will cancel remaining commitment.

    Hi Srini,

    If you deactivate AVAC, it will allow you to post additional commitment, but this will not remove the remaining commitment from PO.

    When you set the Final Invoice Indicator, Purchase Order Commitments are reset, but still i doubt whether this removes the commitment and send to budget.

    Try to do the scenario in your system.

    Regards

    Hi Srini,

    once PO is reduced the budget it will not reverse until we do line item delete and do above suggested.

    AVAC deactivation will make to system as inactive wrt budget functionality which is not advisable.
