Revenue recognition process- Provision account(incompletion log)

Hi gurus

We are trying to configure Revenue recognition process for one of our clients, for which we have got it activated from SAP, Following which I have configured Item category with category B- as we follow order related billing.

We have also assigned, concerned GL accounts in VKOA (also assigned Provisional accounts), Now when i try to save a sales order, In the incompletion log I am getting the incomplete data as "provision account missing".

When I check Account determination analysis, It is showing only Revenue account to be determined

Please let me , If there any other configurations to be done , that we have missed

Thanks in advance

    • Hello,

      What do you mean by not activated - please explain what you have done and what is the current setting for v4/313 message. In case some SAP standard settings are missing (according to the documentation message v4 no.313 is with value 'W' by default) after activation of revenue recognition it makes more sense to contact the vendor instead of asking for help in an internet forum.

      Regarding your first question and part of the second one- please refer to the best practices documentation (which you already have obtained) to understand the source of data for VF44 and how the different tables are updated in each specific case you configure.

      Regarding part of question 2 - it might be good to check what do you see in table VBREVC (in case v4/313 is with 'W') and how did you actually populate the worklist?

    Hi Krishna,

    Yes, you have to activate and do some settings to achieve this.

    1. You have to assign Revenue Recognition Category and Delimit Start date in VOV7 under business data. I hope it is activated. If not, then you have to maintain Parameter Id in SU3 as RR_USER. Now you to maintain the above details in SPRO-Sales and Distribution-Basic Functions-Account Assignment/Costing-Revenue Recognition-Set Revenue Recognition For Item Categories and another FI setting in next Maintain Account Determination. Take FI Consultant help for this settings.

    2. Check VKOA settings and test scenario again.

    3. Please go through the SAP Note 777996 - Account settings for revenue recognition process, 782758 - Prerequisites for using the Revenue Recognition functionality and 1166848 - Revenue recognition: Customizing settings.


    For more customization for Revenue Recognition Process, Google for below keywords and you will get exact details/documents

      Hi Veselina

      I have done the assignments that way, but  Revenue lines were not getting activated due to which when I run VF44, The saved sales order is not being shown in the work list to be selected.

      So I have tried using accrual account key concept using accruals check box in V/06

      Which is why the GL assignments of Provisional will carry same account against accrual account key

    Hi Krishna,

    Right said by Veselina, you have to maintain VKOA settings for KOFI and KOFK as well. Please maintain this and test the scenario again.

    Regards
