Incosistency in WBS hierarchy of a project

Hi Team,

Business is trying to close a project by setting the status to "CLSD". But, he is unable to do so. The system is throwing a message "There is still WIP for WBS 905544-03.02.04" and "WBS 905544-03.02.04 : WIP in Financial Accounting is still to be cleared". That is the same case with another WBS 905544-03.02.04.

When I am trying to run RA (KKA2) for WBS 905544-03.02.03, the system is displaying a message "WBS element 905544-03.02.04 already has results analysis data" and vice-versa. Also, the system do not see anything left for settlement.

I observed in CJ20N, the WBS hierarchy level (L5) for WBS 905544-03.02.03 is wrong. It must be L4, NOT L5. I believe, that wrong hierarchy is causing an issue restricting us closing that project. User unintentionally changes the WBS level and saved it.

I tried running a program "CNHIERAR" also to rectify the WBS level but it didn't work.

Kindly suggest me a note or solution for that.

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,

    Hi Sandeep, There are couple of things that you need to do. Please request your FI consultant to cross check if there is any WIP still pending from the WBS in G/L A/c. If it is there then their you need to clear through KKA2 or you need to post JV to clear it. If you have decided to post a JV to clear it , then goto tcode OBA5 and change the message to warning that you getting during closing. Once you have close the project reset to message to error . But see that you clear the WIP or else that effect the balance sheet . Thanking you Vengaiah
