Settlement Profile-Internal order

Hi

I am looking for a clarification on the following:

In the settlement profile (OKO7) for internal orders, there is provision for allocation structure and source structure.

Why do we use both these in the settlement profile ? In what context, do we have to use both of these.

Regards

    Hi,

    Allocation Structure allocates the costs incurred on a sender by cost element or cost element group.The allocation structure is used for settlement and for assessment. An assignment assigns a cost element or cost element group to a settlement or assessment cost element. Each allocation structure contains a number of such assignments.

    The source structure is used to settle costs incurred on the sender to various receivers, split by cost element. In this way, the source information is retained. The source assignment defines the assignment of the debit cost element to a receiver. More than one source assignments are summarized in one source structure.

    According to above discussion and as per my thinking, you can either define Allocation Structure or Source structure.

    Regards,

    Dear ,

    Following will give you clarity

    Source structure :

    You need to use source structures in your settlement procedures. If you are settling to cost elements, you do not need a source structure.

    Allocation Structure :

    An allocation structure comprises one or several settlement assignments. An assignment shows which costs (origin: cost element groups from debit cost elements) are to be settled to which receiver type like cost center, order, and etc .
