Service Based Revenue Recognition - Prov Account Missing when using WBS

Hi,

I´ve activated RR functionality using service based and aceptance date.

I've followed the intructions from the best practices documents and the notes:

Note 820417 u2013 IMPLEMENTATION GUIDE FOR REVENUE RECOGNITION

Note 1172799 u2013 NEW VERSION OF BEST PRACTICES FOR REVENUE RECOGNITION

Note 678260 CONSTRAINTS

Note 777996 u2013 ACCOUNT SETTINGS FOR REVENUE RECOGNITION PROCESS

Note 779366 u2013 REVENUE RECOGNITION IN THE SD MODULE

Note 1166848 u2013 CUSTOMIZING SETTINGS

Note 782758 u2013 PREREQUISITS FOR USING REVENUE RECOGNITION

Note 835367 - Activating SAP ERP SD revenue recognition

Note 1000830 - Revenue recognition through incoming invoice (third-party

Note 1025066 - Revenue recognition by proof of delivery (POD)

Note 1120297 - Revenue recognition by acceptance date

Note 1125456 - Revenue recognition due to customer-specific event

We are implementing SD, FI (using New Gral Ledger), PS, CO and MM in a company that sells projects. Therefore we're posting everything to the WBS elements.

We need to post the revenue values to the WBS elements too.

The problem is that when we create a sales order for RR indicating a WBS element and try to save it, the system activates the incompletion log saying that the provision account is missing, despite the account is in VKOA.

The strange thing is that if we use a material with profit center (without any WBS or order indication in the sales order) all the revenue recognition process runs perfectly (we save the order, VBREVK is fullfiled, VF44 is run and the invoice is done correctly).

Does anybody know why when using a WBS element in the sales order, SAKN2 field is not fullfiled and the incompletion log is activated???

Is it a program error? Or are we doing something wrong?

Quick responses will be apreciated since we need to move on within two weeks!

Thanks in advance!

María del Valle Pintor.

    Hi

    Please check the WBS settings such that proper GL account has been maintained there along with Profit center.

    And the same profit center should fetch in Sales order as well.

    Something is missing from WBS side, if you know WBS settings, better, else take FI help.

    try and revert
