cost element category 11 documents appearing in report fmrp_fw_budcon after reinitializing ledger

HI - experts

we are moving to BCS from Former budgeting. On activation of BCS and reinitalization of ledger in BCS (FMAVCREINIT) for comparing the consumed and commitment items of BCS with Former budgeting "commitments and assigned", we have noticed that the report FMRP_FW_BUDCON is showing revenue postings (cost element 11) line items which Former budget report FMRP_3FMB4006 does not show. If i make a direct entry in BCS of the same transaction for revenues they don't show in the BCS report FMRP_FW_BUDCON. However we are able to isolate the Revenue postings separately in BCS thru a variant and reconcile. But my question is " can this be a acceptable behavior of the system" or is anything missing because this is happening only for items after re initialization of ledger and not directly posted items in BCS..

(the set up in Former budgeting is old and commitment items have not been made statistical)

kindly provide valuable advice.

regards

Murali

    Hi,

    If some consumption was not shown in FB (former budgeting), then it rather indicates that the ledger in FB was not duly initialized. As I said, there should be no change in the logic of consumption representation between FB and BCS; the difference between them lies in budgetary inscription domain.

    Now, to the fact that the document is not shown in BCS report, but after initialization of AVC ledger also implies that there is some system malfunctioning. It shouldn't work this way. What are the attributes of this document? Cost element as such plays no role here. What is important is the FM assignment of this document. What is the commitment item derived for this? Did you check in FMIFIIT table that the document is duly registered? And the last question, what SAP release are you working with?

    Regards,

    Eli

    Hi,

    Be aware that switching to BCS doesn't change anything in consumption tables. What is posted to BCS tables is the budgetary documents; consumption are still introduced in FMIOI and FMIFIIT as under Former.

    • Eli- thanks for your response.

      with regards to my situation i would like to bring before you the following kindly assist.

      FM is active and live with solution in Former budgeting and with only PB (payment budget)

      Bcs has been activated and configured

      ledger in BCS has been reinitialized. (FMAVCREINIT)

      after re initialization we have seen commitments and consumption in the report FMRP_FW_BUDCON

      for the purpose of reconciliation at this stage we have matched the reports "FMRP_3FMB4006 and FMRP_FW_BUDCON"| with regards to commitments, consumption and assigned.

      there are differences between FB and BCS and because of documents posted with cost element category 11 manually (customer invoices) when only FB was available.There are FM documents generated for these as well.

      the report in FB - " FMRP_3fmb4006" does not show these cost element category 11 docs where as report FMRP_FW_BUDCON at this stage is showing.

      now if we post/perform a transaction in BCS using cost element category 11, the system posts document but the referred BCS report does not show it. and the behavior is same as FB.

      so our conclusion is report FMRP_FW_BUDCON is only showing documents with cost element catg 11 immediately after initialization of ledger but not when a transaction is performed.

      because of this situation for reconcilation between FB and BCS immediately after reinitialization of ledger we have to set filter to documents with cost element catg 11 docs in BCS report but is this what we can expect from the system or is there anything else we are missing

      regards
