Material Ledger Document at PSM-FM

Dear friends,

I use Fund Management and Material Ledger in ECC 6.0.

When I execute the post closing in the CKMLCP, system is deriving FM Data correctly. The FI documents created after the ML post closing have all FM data necessary. But I don't understand why any FM document is being created even from the ML type document in FI.

Is that a standard behavior that I can't change from customizing? That is, it is needed to post in FM the material ledger document just like the the FI document. Some of these postings line items have P&L account and cost center. Budget control should be triggered for these line items. Can that be done?

Rgds.

Hi,

FM is updated only on the closure of Material Ledger. Additional lines created by ML document are not supposed to create budgetary consumption. I'm not sure what you mean by 'ML type', though. If you speak of FI document, then there will be an update given the fact that FM objects derived are of the nature which generates FM document, i.e. commitment item has either 30 or 40 financial transaction.

Hi Eli,

Thanks for the answering soon.

ML Type is the FI document type created as accounting document of the Material Ledger closure.

There are specific cases that these postings have not only asset accounting posting (irrelevant for budget control requirement), but also line items to a profit and loss account, and requirement is to have budget control over these line items.

System is deriving FM data correctly. However, besides the FI document is created after the ML Closure with proper FM data, no FM document is being created. Therefore, no budget control is done.

I also tested FMN0 posting the FI document and log says "Document not updated (The document was correct or not relevant for update)". My question is: how to make it relevant? Is it possible to customize it and I am missing something?

Only for complementing information the P&L account definitely derives a commitment item with financial transaction 30.

Hi,

So, you refer to ML closure document only... Check note:

2149622 - Funds center and commitment item after post closing in Material Ledger

Thanks, Eli.

I discussed note 2149622 and 148967 with partners. As we could conclude from these is that FM is not updated by the Reavaluation of Consumption in Material Ledger at the material ledger closure.

Even if the processes creates a FI document with a loss G/L account posting, FM won’t be updated, is that right?

Rgds.
