URGENT :PCA with NEW GL Assessment cycle.

Hi All,

This is the issue with PCA Assessment New GL (FAGLGA11),in the Header we need to give one Assessment account and definition says the account should be type 42 secondary cost element, BUT when I see drag n drop (F4) for Assessment Account it is showing only Balance sheet accounts ( which are neither Primary cost element or secondary cost elements according to SAP ) , If I choose from the list of Balance sheets accounts the cycle can be saved and can be executed properly .

if I give any other account other than Balance sheet account it is throwing error message GA130.

But I think according to the field definition Assessment Account, it should be a account of type 42 which is secondary cost element , I still wonder How can be assessment carried out Secondary cost element? Thx

    Hi Thank you for the help.

    But How can we know that ? where can I see the what ever you said?

    The basic purpose of Assessment (in CCA/PCA ,in R/3) , using secondary cost element and now in NEW GL don't we need that? ,

    and could you please tell what are the good reports to see the Assessments? other than FS10N?

    can we see any report by Profit center sender and receiver?

    Thank you ,

      Hi Sharab,

      I really appreciate your detailed explanation.which almost cleared my doubt . last night we gave mail to SAP asking teh same and they said we have to use the P&L or B/S account instead of using Secondary cost elemnt as the PCA is the part FI (with New G/L) .

      coming to reports yeah it is not that friendly I can say , we have good reports for Cost center Distribution and Assessment but not for New GL with PCA.I saw some reports in New GL using FS10N, FGI0,FAGLB03,and also with FB03 to see the document posting, which is OK.

      Thank you.

      Could I please ask you a favour? Is it possible for you to add me to your Gtalk?

    The online help for assessment cost element is not updated but in case of new GL, the GL and PCA are completely in one ledger. In classic GL, assessments are run inside CO module using secondary cost elements of type 42. You can ignore the online help for assessment cost element.
