Internal Order Settlement Issue-Complete allocation structure AM

Hi All

I know the below question has been asked before but my issue is slightly different.

I m getting below error while doing settlement.

Complete allocation structure AM

Message no. KD503


During settlement, the system puts the sender debits into groups (assignments), which are settled using the same settlement cost element. The settlement assignment is made in the allocation structure, which is stored in the settlement rule for the sender (under settlement parameters).
Cost element 1234567 cannot be assigned to a settlement cost assignment in allocation structure AM, and therefore it cannot be assigned to a settlement cost element.


Possible solutions are as follows:

  • If the posting under cost element 1234567 was made to the sender because of an incorrect entry, and you can reverse the posting, and do not need to update the allocation structure. You only need to reverse the incorrectly assigned posting before repeating the settlement. Exception: For an investment measure with a line item settlement, you need to extend the allocation structure, even after the reversal.
  • If the posting was made correctly, you can do the following:
    a) You can assign a different allocation structure to the sender: In the master data maintenance for the sender, choose "Settlement rule -> Goto -> Settlement parameters" and then enter a different allocation structure.
    If necessary, also check whether the correct allocation structure is entered in the settlement profile. The allocation structure is defaulted in the settlement profile when you create sender master data or when you maintain the settlement rule.
  • You can update allocation structure AM

a) As mentioned in 'Procedure' we already reversed the document but still we are getting same error. The reverse document is visible in KOB5.

b) The other method we tried is adding cost element 1234567 in cost element group mentioned in allocation structure AM. Although it allowed us to complete allocation cycle but it added more amount to cost element 7891023 which have gone to zero balance.

Can someone pls advice how to resolve it. The other thing I noticed in settlement rule is the 'settlement receiver' is

400000000-0 100% AuC 006/2018 002/2019

200000000-0 100% FUL 002/2019 002/2019

200000000-0 0.00 FUL

I m not sure if the last line makes any sense as it was fully settled on 002/2019. However not sure even if there is another asset used we won't be getting same error or not.

    check the SPRO settings

    Investment Management --Projects as Investment Measures --> Settlement -->Maintain Allocation Structures.

    select the A1

    and select assignment

    and select the corresponding entry and

    check whether this 1234567 cost element is assigned in the source cost element group if not add the same in KAH2.
