WBS settlement doesnot debit the Cost Center


Hi Gurus,

I have a Issue in settlement process on WBS Element. The scenario is to make a settlement between WBS to WBS.

The Pre-requites are,

I'm Make a Good Recipts for a Purchase order , the Account assigment at Line level for a Material A say i have assigned WBS 'X' of Project 'A' and Cost center 'C'. After Making Good Recipt say for a Value of 1000 EUR.

Now i'm executing the Report

CJI3 - Project Actual Cost line item.

I can see the WBS there is Cost 1000 EUR Showing against the WBS element 'X'.

When I execute the Report

KSB1 - Cost center Actual Line Items.

I can see Cost of 100 EUR against this Cost center 'C'.

Now i have to make a settlement from WBS 'X' of Project 'A' to WBS 'Y' of a Different Project Say 'B'.

Sender is WBS 'X' of Project 'A'.

Reciever is WBS 'Y' of Project 'B'.

I have Maintained Settlement Rules in WBS 'X'.

Definiton of Settlement Rule

Category : WBS

Settlement receiver : Y C (Y is receving WBS Element and C is Cost center )

% - 100

Settlement type : FUL

Now i'm executing settlement in CJ88.

The settlement is sucessful.

Now when i see the report CJI3 for WBS 'X'.

The Net Costs is 0.

There is Credit 1000 EUR and Debit of 1000 EUR.

CJI3 for WBS 'Y'.

There is Credit 1000 EUR

Report KSB1 for cost center C.

There are tow line items

the Old one for Good Recipts on WBS 'X' 1000 EUR.

The settlment to WBS 'Y' is another 1000 EUR.

Practically there should only 1000 EUR for cost center C . since we are settling against the same cost center 'C".

Any Body please explains why Costs are doubling against Cost center report in KSB1 .

Thanks in Advance.
