New FM area not available for configuration

Dear all,

I am facing two unexpected behaviors from FM configuration and I would like to check with you, experienced professional, whether it is ok and possible solutions, Any help or advice would be really appreciated.

My customer requirement is to manage the budget as year basis. After creating a new FM área, named ORCA, as assigned it to the company code I am trying to complete these configuration steps without success.

  1. Public Sector Management => Fund Management Government => Basic Settings => Activate Multi-Year Budget Execution.

I understand there is no configuration required here as customer needs to manage budget year dependent. By my point is: why the new FM área ORCA does not show up? Is it OK? Missing FM área at this point would cause inconsistences in the future?

     2. (T-CODE FMSG) - Public Sector Management => Funds Management Government => Master Data => Account Assignment Elements => Funds Center => Hierarchy Variant => Assign Hierarchy Variant to FM Area

On the other hand we would like to work with year independent fund center máster data. As per SAP documentation, I can have hierarchy defined through the years by putting blank in fiscal year. Please, note the shotscreen above, fiscal year is required. I have tried to inform fiscal year 0000 and got the message F6508 "Hierarchy variant 000 is incomplete with regard to fiscal year 0000".

Just for record, Year-dependent máster data is not activated.

Thanks in advance for your attencion.

Kind regards,

    Something is definitely incomplete in your FM area setting. FM area should appear in the customization mentioned by you, even if multi-year flag is switched off. Check FM01D table and make sure that your FM area appears there.
