WBS element exceed error

hi:

We are using SRM5.0 with ECS.I transfer PR into srm with plan driven procurement.

When I creat a PO for this PR and check it, the error message occurs,says item 001 wbs element *** exceed budget, I could not save the PO but hold it,so I think this error message was not the one from R/3.I am just wondering ,what budget does the system check?

Hope some could help me.Tks.

    Hello,

    Budget can be set in SRM through

    PPOMA_BBP> extended attributes>PO value limits-->User Budget

    this value can be set at various dept levels where you want.

    But if you have budget control activated for the plant (which you have at ex attribute --> location) in ECC FI then also you will get errors of budget.

    your FI guy can tell you better.

    So check both the points

    • Atul,

      I wonder that you propose to open an OSS message in case your posting does not explain the situation correctly.

      I don't care if it's part of the etiquette officially , but this is a free forum and pointing people to open an OSS call based upon your decision is really bad style. Maybe you do not remember -- quality is more of value than quantity!

    sorry guys, but what is posted above -- diplomatically, I would say filter&forget unrelevant...

    What you see is budget exceeded problem coming from the ERP -- no user budget etc. is related. As well you have to look at the details before you decide that there's an issue with the CO availability control...

    To understand what happens you need to understand the logic of how the budget is checked -- from SRM we just simulate posting of commitment. The logic how this is done is explained in note No. 520717 + related notes. You need to add the value from your SRM PO to what is the current budget/commitment/actual in this same moment. As well you can adjust the availibility control for logistic types in the backend e.g. you can set up tolerance values for PREQ to 150% and then warning and for PO 100% and error message. This might explain why you get differences for PO/PREQ in the backend.

    Hi Richard:

    Thank you for your reply,So SRM check the R/3 data while creating the PO,but I checked the R/3, it does not exceed budget.And I created a PO from this PR in R/3,this error message did not occur.Could you tell me why?Tks

      Pan

      Budget check can happen at the time of creating a PR or PO depending on the settings in ECC (target group in tolerance limits). I guess in your case it's been set to check budgets at PR stage itself and hence the error.

      If the requirement is to issue a warning alone (not error) it can be done again under this node i.e., Availability control action (1-Warning)
