change in item category and settlement of old sales order not possible

Hi

I have to settle sales orders in VA88 and transfer data to COPA. I want to do directly without result analysis. So, in the item category, I removed the result analysis key. And the settlement goes thru.

My issue is that there are orders in July 2010 which have to be settled, but it does not work since the changes in item category has happened this month in Aug 2010 and the July sales order are also invoiced.

Pl suggest a solution to settle the July sales order to COPA.

Thanks

kamala

    Hi

    I am not so sure, but there is RA key in the sales order also apart from the item category

    I think requirement class also has a RA key in it...

    Did you try to remove it from sales order and req class, if applicable

    • Hi Kamala

      I see only one possibility... The old sales order consists of some GL accounts posted in it which is not mapped in the allocation structure...

      Alloc Str has 2 parts - i.e. One, it consists of a group of cost elements it has to handle and Two, it consists of the valid settlement receivers like PSG, CTR, etc

      You say, this alloc str works well with new sales orders.... The 2nd part of alloc structure (i.e. valid receivers) applies equally to all sales orders.. But what can really differentiate the 2 sales orders is the cost elements posted on it...

      I dont foresee any other posslbe reason
