Hello Gurus,

Good Day!

Issue: While am doing the settlement of Internal Order using KO88, I am getting an error "Balancing Field - Profit Center is not filled in line 001"

Observation: I have replicated the issue and found the below cases:

Case:1 I have posted a Vendor Invoice with Cost Element A (Expense Account) having cost object as Internal Order A and Vendor A. After this when I run the settlement rule, system executes the settlement and does the document splitting.

Case:2 Now I have posted 2 Invoices using FB60 and in both the Invoices the cost element is same i.e. CE A. After this when I run the settlement rule, system executes the settlement and does the document splitting

Case: 3 Again after this I have posted 2 Invoices using FB60 and now I have inserted 2 different Cost Elements i.e. CE A in doc 1 and CE B in Doc B. After this when I run the settlement rule, system doesn't executes the settlement and provides this error.

Case: 4 I have tried one more scenario, where in I have posted 2 documents without Vendor, but different cost elements and again system issued the same error of Balancing Field.

I have checked all the splitting rule, method and they seems to be perfectly fine. Hence I am not able to understand as why system is giving me an error in Case 3 and Case 4.

I request you all, to please help me on this.

Thanks a lot for supporting,

Pritesh Lodha

Hi Pritesh

You need to check for the following:

1. Internal Order has a profit center assigned or if it is a statistical order, than there is a cost center with a profit center maintained in the Cost Center master

2. What is the document type which is used for settlement using KO88. Most of the times it is SA. Please check if the document type used has the correct Transaction and variant assigned in the below path:

IMG>Financial Accounting (New)>General Ledger Accounting (New)>Business Transactions>Document Splitting>Classify Document types for Document Splitting

Ideally it should be 0000 with variant 0001 if you are using the standard SAP Delivered Splitting method

3. For the GL Account (Cost Elements) in question, have you maintained the right category of expense in the below path:

IMG>Financial Accounting (New)>General Ledger Accounting (New)>Business Transactions>Document Splitting>Classify GL Accounts for Document Splitting

Hope you have assigned the category as 20000 for expense

4. Check if you have substitution rules set up if any in GGB1 for clearing out profit center due to any specific reason.

Hello Sanil Sir,

Good Day!

Thanks for your response. Yes everything is in place, all the points you have mentioned.

The issue is system is not fetching the Profit Center from the internal order when it creates Posting.

Hi

Did you check the field status group of all the GL Accounts and posting key that profit center is at least an optional entry?

Hello Sanil Sir,

Good Day!

Yes, for all the Cost Element, the PC is Optional.
