FM - BCS Validation for Budget Transfer scenario

Dear All

We want to build validation that disallows budget transfer posting in FMBB t-code, if following conditions are met -

Sender and Receiver Commitment item are different
Sender and Receiver FC are in different divisions ( business user will provide division wise grouping of Funds centre and we want to use this for validation )

How can we achieve this in system ? Two possible options that I am exploring - (1.) Consistency check library for budget entry document (2.) User exit

In consistency check library, pre-requisities did not have a field where I can restrict validation to "TRANSFER" and it also does not provide me sender and receiver FC/CI. Not sure if check library can help.

Please provide feedback on above query.

No, you don't have definition of sender/receiver in consistency checks structures. You can simulate this definition in the key figure itself (with the sign), but I wonder if you will be able to have a simple boolean rule to meet the requirement you mentioned; I'm afraid some ABAP development would be needed. Unless, you will create key figures for each 'group' of fund centres.

I already have separate document type for budget transfer scenario. But in consistency check do I have fields available like sender/receiver CI, Funds center ? Also my validation is not on budget amount check.


As I said, you don't have it per se, but you can build it with key figure. Budget amount to be controlled in this case is anything different from zero. Still, as I mentioned, would be very complicated to build a rule like this; most probably, you would need to have a development. With BADI FMKU_BUDGET_EVNT.


thanks eli for your expert advice.

Hi, if you want to use consistency check, then you can configure separate document type for Transfer and create check only for this doc type.
