    Hi Ahmed,

    Check the commit management is active for the controlling area using the t-code OKKP.

    Run the controlling area and double click activate components / control indicators & for commit management select components active from the selection list.

    Hope this helps you...

    Hi Ahmed,

    I faced the same problem in my Project. Even the PR commitment does not occur, leave alone PO commitment. Till now I am unsuccessful in finding out the reason behind this. If anyone can throw some light on this, it would be nice.

    I would like to add one more thing. The materials which are procured through MD51, cannot be maintained perectly through CN52N, i.e, their GR qty, Withdrawal qty, Shortfall qty do not reflect perfectly in CN52N.

      There is this note (47992 - No commitment is displayed in reporting) which explains when Commitments would not be generated. Please check if you case belongs to any of these:

      1. For purchase orders/ purchase requisitions for project stock or customer stock with settlement on the project or sales order, no commitment is written in the standard program in general. If you want a commitment being written in these cases as well, apply the corrections from Note 498907

      2. If a purchase requisition which is assigned to a WBS element is generated from material requirements planning (MRP), no commitment is generated for the WBS element.

      Note also explains how updation of commitment values is controlled:

      1. In the year-dependent controlling area control parameters, commitments management must be active (Transaction OKKP).

      2. In addition, the G/L account to which the purchase order is assigned, must be created as a cost element at the delivery date.

      Regeneration of the commitment afterwards is possible by changing the purchasing document (for example, the item text).
