GA846 - Activity-dependent costs are not allocated during the distribution

Hi,

Iu2019m trying to create a distribution and when I execute it I have the folowing messege:

Activity-dependent costs are not allocated during the distribution

Message no. GA846

Diagnosis

You are executing a distribution cycle and have activated account assignment for activity types in the actual in controlling area 3005, fiscal year 2008. As distribution is a function for cost centers, not activity types, the activity-dependent costs remain on the cost center and are used in activity allocation (or assessment).

System Response

This is only for information.

Procedure

If you want to allocate activity-dependent costs, you should use activity allocation or assessment

I canu2019t either do the activity allocation because the imputations haven´t got a Activity Type defined.

Please help me how can I do the distribution

    Hi,

    Business process is also regarded as activity type. so you have two choices

    1. While planning dont use the planning of cost elements based on Business process which will make s,the cost as business process depend and you will not be able to allocate the same. You can use assessement to allocate the cost.

    2. Use Activity allocation or Assessment to allocate the Activity dependent cost

    This may help

    Regards
