Hi.

We are using BCS FM on ECC6.0. there are several commitment items regarding the fixed asset on system and they also are under the budget control (AVC ledger 9H). when i did asset transfer within fund centers, i got an error message such as "no available budget...". i want to skip a budget control in case of asset transfer. how to do this ?

i need your advice

Regards

MK

    Dear MK,

    The Funds Management (FM) derivation tool must be used to

    avoid availability control. Set up statistical commitment items

    and use the tool to derive them depending on your asset management

    transaction types. If you need to check the old way of working with transaction types relevant for budgeting, you may review through SM31 view V_FM_TABW.

    This should solve your issue.

    Regards, Noemí

    Hi,

    I believe, that budget transfer creates special document type in FI document. You can create a rule in FMDERIVE saying that in case of this document type, the commitment item derived should be some dummy one which does not require budget control (statistical).

    Hi,

    I assume you use ABUMN to transfer assets and you want this transaction being exempted from AVC. Steps below can achieve this purpose:

    1. Spro > Public sector > Funds management government > BCS > Availability control > Edit activity groups > create an activitigroup, say Z1

    2. Spro > Public sector > Funds management government > BCS > Availability control > Edit derivation strategy for activity groups > create a derivation rule with source field TCODE and target field ACTIVGRP; assign value ABUMN to TCODE and Z1 to ACTIVGRP

    3. Spro > Public sector > Funds management government > BCS > Availability control > Edit tolerance profiles > create a profile, say NULL, in maintain tolerance limit, assign activity group Z1 to this profile and check inactive box.

    Regards,

    Ming

      Hi MK,

      Let's not to bother with a new profle. Let's make a change to ALL your existing profiles:

      Spro > Public sector > Funds management government > BCS > Availability control > Edit tolerance profiles > in Maintain Tolerance Limit, add a new entry (in addition to the existing entries) with Activity Group = Z1 and Inactive box checked.

      By doing this, regardless how you assign or derive your tolerance profiles, transaction ABUMN will always be exempted from AVC.

      Regards,

      Ming

    Hi MK, as Noemi and Eli have told you, you should use a derivation strategy, look at Note 736914 - Derivation of budget relevance of asset transaction types. And check the following notes:

    Note 1125130 - Indicators for Asset Transaction Type field in FMDERIVE

    Note 1056776 - Search help for asset transaction type field in FMDERIVE

    Note 976658 - "Asset Transaction Type" field missing from FMDERIVE

    Regards
