available funds in going to negative in sap Funds management (former Budgeting)

Hi Experts -

we are having a issue in the system. our available budget sometimes goes into negative after certain transactions are performed. system allows to post transactions even though there is not enough budget. the report FMRP_3FMB4006 shows the negative figures in the column "available budget". the situation is getting corrected after users post some additional budget to cover the deficit. our AVC settings speak about error once we reach 100%. we have tried to simulate/mimic the situation but could never encounter such a situation in our test systems. has any body ever encountered such a situation ..

    Do you mean that you have negative available budget after overconsumption or that you are able to inscribe negative budget or make it negative when there is no consumption? If the second is correct, then consult note 983853. Otherwise, there is something wrong with your AVC ledger. You can consult note 573409 in order to get a grasp what could be the cause of it.

    • Hi - Thanks Eli for your response.

      i mean the system is sometimes allowing for transactions beyond the available budget e.g when i have

      released budget 100

      distributable 100

      assigned is 110

      available -10

      commitments/act 110

      system is allowing for budget commitments transactions beyond available.

      but as you had suggested i will check and revert back.

    Hi - Eli

    we have been observing the system closely after we had one issue again of system going beyond ( available budget in minus) last week

    we have observed that this issue was during STO process where we have 351 MT (issuing plant) and 101 MT ( receiving plant) involved in moving material. we are now checking to see if any movement in material price after 351MT before 101 MT on account of moving average price valuation strategy is causing this.

    thanks and regards

    From your description, pointing to Former Budgeting, I would suggest note 142866 - Availability control for goods receipt in FM .

    Kind regards
