Hi Experts,

Our clients requirement is to consume the budget only at the stage of GR and at the time of IR, the budget should not be consumed. To change it in OFUP, please guide me with the pre requisies to be followed and the impact if it has to be changed during mid of the year.

We use ECC 6 Ehp 8

Changing from GR/IR to IR should be easy from procedural perspective. I wouldn't anticipate any problems with this.

Hi Eli,

Actually the current set up is to update at the time of Invoice 'MM invoice receipt'. If I have to change it to 'MM goods receipt', then am getting a warning that it could lead to errors if performed online and I have to follow the below steps:

Delete the actual data (free selection). Delete all goods receipts and (MM) invoice receipts.
Document transfer from Financial Accounting. Reconstruct the GR/IR account.
    3. RFFMRP02N
Document transfer purchase orders
    4. BPINDX03
Reconstruct Availability Control in Funds Management

What will be the impact for the existing PO's for which GR has not been done. Do we have any notes relevant to this to be applied and any prerequisites

Oh? Then , I misunderstood you. This is more tricky... Do you realize though, that if you change to GR from IR, you won't have payments update working correctly. What update profile are you working with?

We are using the update profile '000102' (Payment budget; Invoice basis ; Posting date)


Functionally speaking, it would not be the right profile if you want to switch to GR update.

If you work with payment budget and have no update on IR, then '57' values won't be able to be generated either.

Currently our requirement is to update the budget only at the time of GR, for this which will be the suitable update profile?
