CJB1 Auto Generation of Settlement Rules


I have created a setttlement strategy for the auto generation of settlement rules, based on the WBS element resposible cost center.

This works as expected and the settlement rules are correctly generated.


Let say I run settlement in period 9. The settlement rule now displays first used and last used periods of period 9 2009.

If I run CJB1 again in period 10, a new settlement rule is created for the same cost center (responsible cost center has not changed), with a validity date from period 10.2009.

We were planning to run CJB1 for all projects every month prior to settlement as a catch all just to make sure that all WBS element settlement rules have been created.

If we follow this process a new settlement rule, for the same Cost Center is created each month, with a new validity from date.

Whilst this is not a problem, and settlement will occur as expected, we will have many settlement rule lines for the WBS element for the same cost center over time.

My question:

Is this the correct behaviour, and if so is it possible to only create a new settlement rule when the responsilbe cost center is changed?

Thanks in advance.
