Validation Rule

Hi Gurus

I have to set a validation rule at project defination level linked to the system status BUDG and REL , Such that the project can not be released unless and until it is budgeted.

A user can only release a project if it is budgeted, without this he shouldn't be able to release the project.

Can any one suggest , what will be the pre requisite and check for this .

Basically i need the program which should be there in the pre requisite and check for this validation.

And if it is not possible to do with validation then is there any other alternate like any USER EXIT or BADI or BAPI .

    I believe you can achieve this via validation exit.

    In my opinion you shud be using user status to address this requirement and not validation.

      Hello Dhruv/Krista,

      I agree with Shrikant. You can use User status transaction control, to meet your requirements.

      Define a user status (e.g.1 Status as INI - Initial, 2 BUD - BUDGETED) and thru transaction control forbid the system status of REL, till the user status is INI.Once the User Budgets the projects, he changes the User status to BUD and for that user status, allow the REL system status.

      Hope this helps

      Thanks
