actual overhead costs calculation

Hi,

i've got a probleme with actual overhead costs calculation in PS.

I plan costs on activity elements for activity types. i've got costing sheets and costing variants for actual and planned values.

when i do ctrl+f10, the planned values are calculated for the activity type and its associated overhead costs. (no need to launch t-code cj46)

then i do enter times in cat2, transfer them to ps through cat5, the hours are valudated in the activty element but not the overhead.

i always have to use cj44 to transfer actual overhead to project.

is this t-code a compulsory step to transfer overhead costs to PS? or is my costing variant not properly customized?

regards

xavier

      Hi,

      You sound like an expert in project systems. Can you please advise how to make the overhead allocations (t.code CJ45) transaction currency to adopt the object currency instead of the controlling area currency. Currently the transaction currency is adopting from the controlling area currency.

    Hi,

    Please confirm have you assigned costing sheet in the valuation variant used in actual cost costing variant ?

    T-code OPL1.

    I think defaulting costing here should calculate overhead as it does at planning phase.

    Thanks
