Project cancelled - Dealing with commitments

Hello Friends,

We have a situation where a project has been cancelled. We have a maintenance order that is attached to an activity, which we have now set to TECO. We have an open PO with partial GR, which we also want to close now. To do so, we set the "Final invoice" indicator in the PO. Even after doing this, we are getting an error that there are commitment items, and this preventing us from closing the project.

Could you point out a possible flaw in our processes? Also, could you please point out the right procedure to follow to take care of commitment items before closing a project unexpectedly. Please provide T Codes for relevant steps and reports, since I'm not very strong in either MM or PS.

Thanks in advance. I appreciate your time.

    Put tick on "Delivery Completed" Indicator under Delivery tab of PO. This wil close the commitment due to partial GR.

    Hi,

    Project consist of many WBS and activities. The PO is created from PS i.e. from the network/activity.

    You have to fist technically complete these activities and WBS from which the commitment is triggered i.e PO.

    Then you have to technically complete the whole project and then you have to close it.

    Once you technically completes the network and/or activities system will automatically cancel the commitments and release the reserved budget too.

    Hi,

    You can teco a project even if there is a commitment but system wont allow to close the project, for closing you have to reduce all the coomitments.

    TECO doesnt mean to reduce commitment, to reduce commitment search for open PR, PO, Prd.order or any work order or any reservation linked to NWA or WBS element. If they are then short close them and then check.

    You can use txn me5j or me2j.

    Or you can directly open 533 report and select commitments and go to callup report.

    Hope this help you.

    Regards
