Complete allocation structure Z4 Message no. KD503

Complete allocation structure Z4

Message no. KD503


During settlement, the system puts the sender debits into groups (assignments), which are settled using the same settlement cost element. The settlement assignment is made in the allocation structure, which is stored in the settlement rule for the sender (under settlement parameters).

Cost element 90001000 cannot be assigned to a settlement cost assignment in allocation structure Z4, and therefore it cannot be assigned to a settlement cost element.


Possible solutions are as follows:

If the posting under cost element 90001000 was made to the sender because of an incorrect entry, and you can reverse the posting, and do not need to update the allocation structure. You only need to reverse the incorrectly assigned posting before repeating the settlement. Exception: For an investment measure with a line item settlement, you need to extend the allocation structure, even after the reversal.

If the posting was made correctly, you can do the following:

a) You can assign a different allocation structure to the sender: In the master data maintenance for the sender, choose "Settlement rule -> Goto -> Settlement parameters" and then enter a different allocation structure.

If necessary, also check whether the correct allocation structure is entered in the settlement profile. The allocation structure is defaulted in the settlement profile when you create sender master data or when you maintain the settlement rule.

You can update allocation structure Z4

Please help resolve error below.

What do I need to reverse?

Is there a different way to enter actual cost for this?

What do you think is missing in my allocation structure?

    You have to assign the G/L account 90001000 to your settlement structure Z4 as a sender.

    When you are using sets for the sender details you can ad it to the set and take it out again later after the settlement.

    When the G/l account is in the sender structure Z4 then you have to change the config from your settlement structure Z4

      Hi Paul,

      It seems that when I assign a cost element group, which includes cost element 90001000, to the allocation structure the error above occurs. But when I tried assigning the individual cost element 90001000 in the allocation structure the process proceeds without error.

      Does anybody know why this is happening? Thank you.

    Hi paul

    This error message you are getting KD503

    This message comes up at the time of settlement of the order when you are transferring the cost from on cost object to the other. Here you are giving the final cost settlement on the asset so the final asset is where all the cost is going to get settle for the cost which you have taken in the internal order. you have to define a roadmap for the cost elements which is carrying the cost from the IO to the final asset.

    The resolution Is do the following: go to KO88 and explore the juke box where you have booked all the jv take note of all those cost elements now come to KSES and here under Z4 allocation structure give CO  area and go to source tab and give the range of cost elements that you have used in ko88 and save it

    This will resolve your issue.

    Kind regards
