AFRUD-CATSBELNR not available for input in transaction IW41

Hi everyone!

Due to an error we had in the time posting program (CAT9) we are trying to manually post confirmation in reference to the CATS document number (CATSBELNR) via IW41 transaction.

WE have been struggling trying to make the field available for input in IW41 details screen which theoretically can be enabled for input via customizing in t.code OIZN where we have moved it through all possible controls without success (see snap 1); however, although we have not been able to make the field visible while accesing via IW41 (see snap 2) but only to display records that were posted from a CATS transfer (See snap 3).

Has anyone had this same requirement before? were you able to make field available in IW41 screen for input?

    Hi,

    The CATS Document number will not appear on IW41. There is no facility (or purpose) tto entering that document there. If an error has been made on the original input, the usual option is to cancel/reverse the original and make a new entry.

    • Due to an unknown error, there was no confirmation posted in PM during the initial run. User tried to reverse the original CATS document, however while running CAT9 error LR 121 is raised stating there was not an original confirmation associated thus can't be reversed; however, we have determined the error is our userexit where we have a BDC that posts FI documents with the revenue associated to this time entries. We'll to tackle the issue there.

    Also check in the IW46 error pool to see if there are any records in error.

    Hi,

    I dont think this is possible. But my question, why are you processing through IW41 ?

    I guess you need to fix the error occurred in CAT9 and post the cost.

    • Hi Maria! We ended up creating a Z* program to reverse the FI documents as that part was already Z* logic in our Z* version of CAT9. I had already tried those programs but they were of no use due to the above mentioned situation. In any case, thansk for getting back to me.

    You need to correct original CATS document (correction "at the source"). You should not try to correct a secondary dependent document like PM confirmation as it is dependent on CATS document. Naturally the fileds in CATS document are not the same as fields in PM confirmation document.
