Account assignment

Dear experts,

I am having an error in Fleet management and financial accounting which is a result of account assignment in Funds Management. I configured the fund to be mandatory and when the Fleet guys want to do their maintenance scheduling, they get the following error:

*FM account assignment -/370707/221010/-/- cannot be posted in posting ledger 9B*

*Message no. FMBS123*


*The budget structure settings do not allow posting to the FM account assignment -/370707/221010/-/-. The check of the budget structure ended with the return code 4.*

*The system recognizes the following return codes for the check of posting addresses:*

*Return code 1:*

*The check of posting addresses is switched on. However the FM account assignment -/370707/221010/-/- is missing in the budget structure. Insert this account assignment in the budget structure for the posting ledger 9B.*

*Return code 2:*

*The check of posting addresses is switched off, but the validation of posting addresses does not allow posting on this address. Check the implementation of the Business Add-In (BAdI) Validate Budget and Posting Addresses in BS.*

*Return code 3:*

*The FM account assignment -/370707/221010/-/- leads to a conflict when you define a grouping key within the context of the budget structure. Check the implementation of the Business Add-In (BAdI) Define Grouping Key.*

*Return code 4:*

*The derivation strategy used for deriving the budget address from the posting address derives an invalid budget address. You can use the program for displaying of budget structure settings to find out which derivation strategy is used. Check the Derivation Strategy for BudgetAddresses in Customizing. This error may also be caused by inconsistent customizing of active FM account assignment elements in BCS and FM. This can be checked in IMG activity Activate Account Assignment Elements in Budget Control System.*

*System Response*

*Processing stops.*


*Check the budget structure settings according to the given return code.*

In Financial accounting when trying to post a double entry document, they get the same error, but if they capture the field for fund, they dont get it. In Fleet, there is nowhere you can capture the fund field.

Kindly help, how do I solve this problem?

Kind Regards,

    Apparently, you are using budget structure in your FM configuration with a posting address check. This implies, that the relevant FM objects combination (fund centre/commitment item) should be maitained as posting address. You do it via FMBSPO (for BCS) or FM9K (for former). Also, check, if you are using fund source as FM object, if fund source should be derived in the FM address, as according to your descriptiton, it was not.
