WBS Settlement and FI Postings

Hi All,

Need your input on this.

We are doing settlement of costs from WBS to cost center. Let us two cost elements are carrying the costs for the same project. At the time of settlement, an accounting document is being created, but only for one cost element- debiting and crediting the carrier cost element in FI.But for the other cost element there is not posting done in the FI.

Here is my questions regarding this issue:

Should the accounting document be created at all?

If not then what might be causing the creation of FI postings for one cost element while no postings for the other?

If it should be created what might be causing the creation of FI postings for one cost element while not for the other? What doc type it should be?

If FI doc should or shouldn't be created, does it apply to both classic GL and New GL. BTY, we are on new GL.

Has it anything to do with the type of CE?

    Hi,

    yes the FI doc must contain both the cost elements. as wbs would be credited & CC will be debited with the same cost element.

    just review the configuration of your allocation & source structure in customization.

      Thanks for your comments.

      I have checked the allocation structure and could not find anything missing in the config. We are not using source structure. For both the cost elements, the WBS is credited and cost center debited in the CO document. The FI document only contains postings for one cost element. One more thing, the FI document does not have WBS number populated for the credit line item while debit line item is populating the cost ctr. Should the credit line item be populated with the WBS number in the WBS # field? What doc type the FI document should be?
