Budget Exceeded Message Customization

Hi, is there a user exit or customization available to change the warning/error message when the project budget is exceeded and availability control kicks off upon exceeding the budget tolerance limit?

      The Define Tolerance Limits function lets you define what you want to do - warning, warning with MAIL or error, but it does not let you specify what is going to be specified in the warning, error or in the MAIL. I am looking for ways to customize the message.

    We couldn't change the BAC messages through customization because the underlying code is manipulating internal ABAP text fields. Another driving requirement for us was to have a single BAC email sent out per project per day.

    We controlled this by:

    1. Set BAC to warnings only

    2. Captured all BAC warings in a custom table through user exit "EXIT_SAPLBPFC_002".

    3. Run a nightly batch job that reads the posted BAC warnings and sends out the emails as needed with the text we want. This is a small custom program.

    Hope it helps,

    Phil

      Philip, I think this exit is part of the customization SAPLBPFC. Is it called everytime during availability control budget check against assigned values of the WBS?
