Problem in cost settlement from project to project

Hai SAP Guru

WE are developer company, so when a land is acquired we create the project under business development with nomenclature "BD/LG/01" with corporate profit centre linked to it (as we are not sure if the project takes of due to various issues.)

When the project commences we create another project structure with nomenclature "BE/LG/01u201D with new profit centre.

So when we transfer the cost lying in u201C BD u201D project to u201C BE u201C project by giving settlement profile, the cost get transferred using secondary cost element. when we see the statement through CJI3 report the cost would have get transferred but when we

see the report through Finance Profit Centre report the cost would have not transferred

So in order to get the report in profit centre, can we use primary cost element instead of secondary cost element, if we use the primary cost element what the consequence and what care needs to be taken for settlement.

    Your scenario

    Project A acquire Land A for £100 against primary cost element 123456

    Project B develop Land A - need to transfer the value of land from Project A

    First all I am wondering why you have two projects - I would have set up one project with the level 2 WBS being acquire and develop.

    Anyway to transfer costs I would use an FI journal instead of settlement

    Debit project B £100 against 123456

    Credit project A £100 against 123456

    Now Proejct has zero values and can be closed

    Proejct B has the cost of land
