How to process Assessment cycle for closed periods

We have situation regarding KSU5 - assessment cycle.

One cycle say "ABCD" got some error while processing KSU5 during period 1(P1) and before assessment cycle master data was fixed the P1 was closed, hence did not allocate the values.

Business was in assumption that P1 values will be accumulated and processed during P2 close(as cumulative option was checked in cycle), but when P2 closing executed (via batch job), P1 values were not accumulated and only P2 values were posted.

When tried to process manually for P1 & P2, encountered an error as "Business transaction Actual Overhead Assessment has been locked for controlling"

Due to audit/sox, we cannot open P1 and process it.

We don't have a process set up in system to post manual allocation via KB15N (config missing for FI-SL ledgers and PCA).

Can you suggest any work around to process P1 entry to accumulated values to post in P2 or P3.

Note : Assessment cycle header has Cumulative & Iterative checked.

Appreciate your help and effort.

Regards - Dav

I'm afraid, there is no other solution, but to open the periods.

For auditors, an explanation could be as it is done in all similar cases: producing TB reports before and after the action, documenting the difference between the two dates, etc.



P.S. Unless, you use cumulative allocation...

HI Eli,

Will Cumulative Processing & Cumulative Processing Indicator (Optimized Version) will help to post to closed periods.

I tried these options, but same result.

Is there any way around to post the cycle.

Thanks -Dav


Normally, it will, but it is a major change of concept for allocation processing.

Read carefully what this option means and what it requires for correct allocation.
