Profit Centres and Distribution Rules

Hi, Is there someone who can help me about a problem with cost accounting?

I've set profit centres, distribution rules (created and linked to profit centres), I've linked accounts to distribution rules so the "profit centre report" shows all the expenses related to each PC/DR. I also can see the table with all the parameters I set. My question is: how can I check (or is it possible to check) if a specific cost (account) is more than the limit I set in the distribution rules? In other terms: If I set 10.000 EUR on DR called "training expenses" with account linked "040001" and then I charge this account with 20.000 EUR; is it possible to have a notification or something in the "profit centre report" or in the "table of PC and DR" who tells: "ehy man, you spent too much!!!" (or at least the possibility to have DR values in the PC report?).

Thanks a lot in advance and sorry about the length of my post.

    No but you can use the Budget features of B1 to do something similar. If you turn on Budgeting from the System Initialization>General Settings>Budget You can warn on devations from Budget or block devations from budget, on PO, GRPO and JEs
