How is acc assgmnt catgry decided by system in material attachment to Proj?

Hello Experts,

I have read a few docs, searched forums but to no avail. I still do not have a clear idea of how the system picks account assignment category for the materials we attach in project.

I can figure out vaguely based on parameters like Item category (L,N etc), Procurement type indicator of material master (E,F, ,X), and procurement indicator (Individual/collective/both), and reservation for WBS/Network.

But I cannot put down the permutations and combination of above (or any other deciding) factors and say that - OK Q or P or N or Blank is the acct. assignment category for above set of indicators.

I hope my explanation helps in making you understand that I am seeking some clear cut methodology of determination of acct. assgnmnt category. I feel this is the basic building concept for me to go ahead and attach all kinds of materials in a project - produced, procured, direct consumption materials etc...

And yeah, the latter part of question is: I guess we can influence the determination of account assignment category in material assignment. If yes, How can we do this?

Hope to see an early response,

Thanks.

    Hi

    Please check the configuration for Account assignment categoriy Q and set the Network field as Optional entry. Then you can see both the network and WBS element in the Purchase Order.

    Dear Maverick,

    You may influence this setting by configuration. Please see transaction code OPTT or SPRO-Project System-Material-Procurement-Check Acct Asst Categories and Document Types for Purc.Reqs

    I hope this is what you were looking for.

    Cheers, Aleksandra

      Hi,

      Purchase requisitions can be assigned to

      The network

      The planned costs are updated in the network.

      The WBS element, if the network is assigned to a WBS element

      The planned costs are updated in the WBS element.

      The sales order, if the network is assigned to a sales order

      The planned costs are updated in the sales order.

      So we define in the customising on

      Check Account Assignment Cat and Doc Types for Purchase Requisition -


      where we assign order category to the document type with the below details,

      Acct. assgmt. gen. -


      N --- Network

      AcctAssCat projects -


      Q --- Proj. make-to-order

      AccAssCat SalesOrder -


      E --- Ind. cust. w. KD-CO

      Sales doc. - project -


      D--- Indiv.cust./project

      This is how the project picks up the Item categories. Hoep this is clear.

      Regards,

      Selva

    Regarding the 2nd part of your question - the account assignment category will be derrived automatically from customizing settings. To make it editable, you need to change SAP standard.
