WBS dates to restrict transactions


Though the WBS dates are only for planning functionality. That is in standard the WBS dates Basic Start and Finish dates has only functionality for planning and scheduling. Does it in anyway have restriction on actual bookings. We want to restrict many functions like booking costs on WBS and also time booking if the Finish date has crossed i.e. the posting date is later than the finish dates. Can this be achieved?

    Hi Suman,

    As you correctly mentioned, the WBS dates are for planning purpose only. So the required functionality will call for an enhancement.

    So what I may suggest is one of the ways to achieve this -

    Let's say we develop a custom program which is executed via batch job everyday to check the WBS finish date and set the status of WBS to LKD (All transaction locked) if finish date is equal to today's date.

    So technically:

    1. Develop a custom program with logic of retrieving all WBS elements that are having Basic finish date (PRTE-PENDE) as today.

    2. Call FM BAPI_BUS2054_SET_STATUS for all selected WBS elements' object numbers and set status as "LKD".

    Hope this helps.

    Best regards,
