Budget Transfer process!


we configured the funds management ( BCS) but the facing the problem following!

we created the fund center, having no budget. but when I use the budget transfer process, the system does not check the sender weather the transfer amount is available or not on the sender fund center. it would transfer any amount to the receiver fund center.

further, system will not take into consideration the amount on the sender fund center & would transfer the amount which is far more than what is availabale on the sender.

    I think You are wrong with AVC - this checks either the budget is available for invoice-booking.

    You have to configure the budget consistency Check in IMG (PS>>Funds Manag.>> BCS>>BCS Budgeting>>Control Budgeting flow>>Consistency Check)

    Define first the ZZ -Keyfigure like CURRENT_BDGT_AB from SAP,

    Define the Check Library for Budget Address and Entry Documents with the rule that this ZZ-Key Figure with Budget SUM couldn't be negative and assign this libraries to documents or vice versa. Don't forget to customize the error message in a library.

    By booking an amount which is greater than av. budget you will get with error message and booking stops. The checking by booking sometimes does't produce this error - you will see it only by booking.

    You might define anothe libraries and rules which does't allow to book a budget greater than f.i. 10000000.

    Good luck.

    There would be some points to check:

    -After creation of this funds center, FMAVCREINIT with option 'Reset Index table' should be used (see note 725266).

    -Derivation strategies for Control Objects and Tolerance profiles should be consistent with the newly created Master Data

    -Check whether you have filters for consumable budget

    Nevertheless, it looks a customizing issue. I am attaching a link to the BCS on-line help so you can find more information:

    <a href="">BCS Availability control</a>

    I hope this helps..

    Kind regards,

      I'm unable to resolve the issue by consistency check.

      brother, this standard process that the system should check automatically.

      Therefore, you are requested to kindly guide me further.

      brother, even the system does not takes into consideration the release budget.

      we are able to process invoice on the entred budget.

      Would be thankful
