Funded program derivation not being derived correctly

Hi all,

I am deriving FM account elements using source fields GL and Plant to derive Commitment Item, Funds Center, Functional Area, Fund and Funded Program. This is for MM purchase requisitions. When i create a PR and trace the derivations, at the time of entering the PR, all objects are derived correctly and both GL and plant are filled up as source fields - Event is CHECKALL.

But when i check the document before posting, event changes to OPENITEM and GL account is no longer being filled up as a source field. Source field becomes only plant. The cause of that is Funded Program is no longer being derived and the system will issue a budget error.

Kindly assist.

Jordan.

    Hi,

    Please, check if note 1330498 - FMDERIVE to re-derive values instead of reading from buffer

    is implemented in your system.

    P.S. Also check this one:

    1532905 - Buffer table not properly updated within FMDERIVE

    Hi Eli,

    Thanks for the prompt responses. After implementing your recommendation the system is still dropping the derivations. It still cant derive all objects at the time of posting. It only derives them at the time of entering the data.

    • Once derived, they shouldn't be erased if you set the rule in the way I showed.

      Set a trace in FMDERIVE and check why the data is erased, i.e. which step is erasing it.
