FI 228 error message

We have many PO's that are a mix of stocked and non-stock items. If the GR was processed in the previous fiscal year, we are unable to process the invoice in the new fiscal year. Executing FMJ2 and FMJ0 have no impact. If the PO's are not mixed, we don't have a problem with FMJ2 and FMJ0.

How do we get around this issue since some of the line items do not have a funds center associated with it. I can see the GR document and corresponding FI document but unable to carry anything forward.

We have looked at various notes and have not come up with a good resolution.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have FM update impact on G/R posting in OFUP settings?

What are then entries in FMIOI table for the 'problematic' POs? Would you post some screenshots...

Hope this helps. It was difficult to find a file extension that was acceptable to upload.

From what I see looking at your FMIOI table, items 30, 40, 50 and 60 were duly carried-forward (with zero amount) to 2018. So, what is the problem?


The invoice is for all line items. When we run FMJ0 or FMJ2 for the FI document generated from the goods receipt in previous fiscal year, it says there is nothing to carry forward. I believe we are getting this issue because of the first two lines and need a way of processing the invoice for all of the line items.


So, you want to carry-forward G/R lines? What are the entries in FMIFIIT for these documents?


See the following attachments. As you can see from the table, lines 10 and 20 are not there. But, I'm still guessing it is because those are not hitting actual funds centers since they are stocked

Why same PO type used to create PO for stock and non-stock material?

For future you can use a PO document type to create PO for stock material and a different PO document type to create PO for Non-stock material.

For your present issue- you can raise SAP message to SAP.

We don't normally have an issue with mixing on the same document type. This just recently started and only impacts those PO's where the GR was done in a previous fiscal year and the invoice comes in the new year.
