Realized Exchange Rate hitting both Cost Center and Internal Order

Hi All ,

We have the payment document from F110 , which is posting to both the Cost Center and the Internal order . In the Vendor invoice , we have both the cost center and the Internal Order .

When the payment is done to clear the invoice from F110 , the Realized Forex difference account in the document is posting to both the cost center and the Internal Order from the original invoice. However we do not want this realized forex difference account to post to the Internal Order , as we do a settlement from the Internal order to the AUC Asset. This Realized Forex diff account should post only to the cost center in the line item ..

Why does the system post both to the cost center and Internal Order and how can we restrict this only to the cost center ..

Thanks ,

Srikanth

    Hi

    Some more details required and probable responses:

    1. Is the IO used in invoice, a statistical IO assigned to a cost center? If yes, than the posting is correct, since a real cost object will be required to make the posting, which would be a cost center in this case.

    2. If the IO in invoice is real, why are you assigning a cost center during the posting of invoice, since it will only be an statistical posting to cost center and real CO posting will be to IO? Ideally you should post only to IO, if the IO is real.

    So in either cases, the posting is correct and you have to check the process definition at your end.

    Thanks & Regards

    • Hi ,

      Yes the Internal order is a real Internal Order . The posting in the invoice is happening through an Interface , and it is posting to both a cost center and an Internal Order , in the expense line item .

      Is there a way to restrict the payment document , so that the Realized Exchange Rate difference account posts only to the cost center .Is it due to the CO document splitting characteristics , that the system is posting to an Internal Order and a cost center ? Because the same Realized Exchange Rate difference account is posted twice in the document with assignments to cost center and Internal Order.

      And if document splitting is the cause , what will be the impact of removing the Internal Order from the document splitting characteristics

      Thanks ,

    Hi Srikanth

    As i pointed out in point 2, why do you have a cost center with a real IO? is it something that you can remove from Invoice posting itself, so that FX Posting will not have the two cost objects, one being real and other being statistical.

    The FX difference posting will be posted on cost objects from Invoice and that is how standard SAP is supposed to behave. If you cannot remove cost center and IO from the interface generated Invoice posting, than you can settle the IO FX amount through the settlement rule to the right cost center

    Thanks & Regards
