Assessment Cycle(KSU5) - Allocating Cost for Only One Month


I want to allocate cost relating 2008 from cost centres to WBS. For that I'm trying run the assessment cycle(ksu5). The test results shows allocation of cost for the month of Sep2008. i.e It doesn't allocate cost that are posted before sep and after september though the cost centre has costs from Apr 2008. My Assessment cycle period starts from 01.04.2008 and is valid for the whole year till 31.03.2009. I've 3 WBS elements to which the costs for the whole year has to be posted according to the no. of hours. Among 3WBS one is created in the month of Apr 2008 and the other is created in Aug 2008 and the last one is create in Dec 2008.

So Can anyone tell me why the cost is not posted for all the months.

Thanks in Advance

    Hi ,

    Check whether you have labor hours against the WBS Elements on a monthly basis in the respective months. Also , let us know the message which you get when you execute the Cycle.

    Please check the Cumulative indicator in the Assessment Cycle definition. If the Cycle is not cumulative then it would not include costs of earlier month for allocation.

    Go to - KSU2 and in the Header screen you will find the check box called Cumulative.

    While executing the cycle through KSU5 in the selection screen you will have to specify period from and period to. It will automatically consider all costs upto the period.
