Settlement - Allocation strucure customization

858 Views Last edit Jan 27, 2020 at 12:03 PM 2 rev

Hi Experts,

It’s been long time I worked in RA and settlement process for projects in PS.

I am simulating RA and settlement with a Cost based POC method.

I have configured RA (OKG1, OKG2, OKG3, OKG4 and OKG8) but stuck in allocation structure customization.

When I am running project settlement (CJ88), the system is throwing errors.

G/L account 900101 1000 does not exist,

G/L account 900010 1000 does not exist,

G/L account 900010 is not defined in company code 1000

Those errors look straight forward but those are not.

We tried to maintain company code data also in those cost elements with account type 'P' but the system is not allowing to maintain company code data with category 31.

I got to know from SAP that I am using the settlement by cost element in assignment 50 of allocation structure Z1. That is not recommendable in my scenario as the secondary cost elements 900101 and 900010 are maintained for COS/Revenues/Revenues in transaction code OKG4.

Cost elements with G/L account type S are available in controlling, only.

The recommendation is using a settlement cost element with G/L account type P or X in assignment 50 of allocation structure Z1.

But I am still confused.

One side, I am maintaining a GL as a receiver in settlement rule. Other side, I need to maintain a settlement cost element in allocation structure configuration.

How and where the accounting entries will hit using a separate settlement cost element???

Please follow the attached screen shots and suggest me.
