How can you tell if an FI Document will settle?

I am trying to create a BW Query/Report that will list all costs in FI which are supposed to settle, but have not yet settled.

So there are two questions:

  1. How do the SAP settlement programs find costs that should settle?
  2. Hoe does this program know which costs have already been settled?

P.S. We are using the Classic GL.

  • Hi Paul - what is the business reason behind this query? We just run a variant/layout of transaction CJ30 to provide this information. Why recreate it in BEx?

  • Because we are trying to find every unsettled cost for every type of order (Sales Order, Project, Service Order, Production Order, etc) in mass.

    Also because we are trying to identify which documents we should exclude from our BEx income statement (if they are supposed to settle, then those docs should be excluded, vs the WIP/COGs docs that are created during RA/Settlement).

    I believe, there is a misunderstanding in the settlement concept. You don't settle a FI document, but a cost object, e.g. internal order. The balances are settled following the relevant rule and internal CO document is created. When there is no balances, then there is nothing to settle.

    • The system looks at the outstanding balance on the object and creates a settlement document for this amount. I.e. you cannot distinguish what FI documents were settled in this or that settlement, as you can even decide on partial settlement.
