While doing settlement i was geting error saying that some WBS is closed and since those are closed we can’t do the settlement.

Is that Standard SAP behavior prevents project to set closed status if there are still balance to settle down ?

assume you turned the key to lock your door and still everyone could just go in and out, what sense would then a lock make?

What sense would a closed status make if you could still go on and do business as usual?

Hi Jurgen,

Thanks for your reply, I am trying to understand what's the standard behavior of SAP Project System in term of settlement.

As per my understanding if there is balance to settle at WBS then system should not allow to set status CLSD were as my Consultant is saying this is standard behavior of SAP and it allow to set status CLSD either balance is there to settle or not and once CLSD status is set then system would not allow to run settlement for that WBS.

It will be great if you provide me understanding of standard behavior of SAP.

Hi Rajesh,

If the settlement is not done fully, you cannot do closure of the WBS element.

You need to do the Settlement either in REL status or TECO status. There are reports available to check the cost settlement is done in full.

Hi Maria,

Thanks for you reply, I agree with this that "If the settlement is not done fully, you cannot do closure of the WBS element."

I just want to understand the standard behaviors of SAP system, if there are balance in WBS for settlement then system allow to set "CLSD" status without settlement ? or it would not allow to set CLSD status on WBS.

Hi Rajesh,

In Standard system, you cannot set CLSD status if there is a balance (Actual cost posted).

If some thing happens in your system, then it should be a bug.
