Budget Exceeded for lower-level WBS with different co-code and currency


Hi everybody,

Below are the WBS Master Data settings in the SAP system :

WBS Level WBS WBS Description Company Code Profit Center Currency

2 11111 Process Stores 1000 1000A USD

3 22222 Process Stores 2 1000 1000A USD

3 33333 Process Stores 3 2000 2000A BRL

And below is the result of excuting Budget/Actual/Commitment report (tcode S_ALR_87013558)

WBS Available - Overall

11111 5000

22222 2000

33333 0

When I tried to post an amount of 100.00 to WBS 33333, the system is giving an error message that the budget is exceeded by 100.00.

I then tried to post an amount of 2001.00 to WBS 22222. This time, the system allows the entry to be posted. This shows that the system is configured in such a way that if the lower-level WBS does not have sufficient fund, it will go to the higher-level WBS for fund.

It is possible to configure the system to allow WBS 33333 to use the fund of WBS 11111 if they do not have the same co-code and/or currencies ?

Greatly appreciate any suggestions...

Thank You.
