    Following are month end steps. Pls note that the use of those steps depends upon the business processes at each organisation.

    1) CEA - Reconciliation Ledger (Reconciles CO with FI for internal CO Posting relevant to FI. It generates FI Postings for internal CO documents relevant to FI).

    2) CCA/PCA - Cost CEnter Assessment/ Distribution or Reposting for Overhead Cost Allocation.

    3) PCA - Transfer of Receivables/ Paybles (T Code 1KEK) if PCA is also used for tracking Balance Sheet Account Balances.

    Hope this will give initail insight.



    Pls award points if this helps.

      please bear in mind that you also have to run transactin F.5D BEFORE you run transaction 1KEK.

      The logic is like that because:

      The FI documents processed by the transaction F.5D are allocated according to predefined SAP standard rules. The specification as to which standard rule is assigned to a document is also predefined.

      In this case the open customer/vendor items are allocated according to the offsetting lines of the invoice. So the decision how the values of the AR/AP line items in the FI documents are splitted on several profitcenters is made during the run of F.5D.

      Finally transaction F.5D creates the entries in tables BFOD_A/BFOK_A.

      In these tables there is a field called 'AUGDT' which represents the Clearing Date of the corresponding FI document. Once a debit/credit line has been cleared in FI this field 'AUGDT' is filled in table BFOD_A or

      BFOK_A. Every run of 1KEK takes over only those records that have an empty field 'AUGDT'. Therefore, the tables BFOD_A/BFOK_A are not time-depending as a possible reset of the clearing would also reset the field 'AUGDT' and a next run of 1KEK would again take over the open

      AP/AR items into PCA.

      Best regards,
