Budget - fixed and variable cost blocking in cost center level.


Kinldy tell me how Budget for fixed and variable cost to be locked at the Cost Center level. Actual expenditure will be less than or equal to budgeted level. We can restrict budget wise value through Internal Order in KO22 against particular financial year. The actual amount will not post if it exceeds than budgeted figure against Internal Order. This is one way entry through Internal Order - Budget. But my requirement is if I put value in KP06 in combination of Cost Center and Cost element against either fixed cost or variable cost it will blocked automatically when actual entry exceeds than this plan figure. I have tested actual entry and caompared with plan figure i.e, KP06. But it has found that actual entry exceeds than plan figure in report S_ALR_87013611. Is it possible this type of blocking for fixed and variable cost in cost center level ?

Kindly need your valuable suggestion.....

    There is no standard solution in CO for your requirement. If you want to manage your budget in a way you describe, you have to do it not in CO, but in FM (Funds Management).

    By definition, Plan values are not meant for used for Budgeting.. Plan values are meant for analysis and comparision against actuals.

    In CO module ( Internal Orders) , the Availability control is available against Budget only, not against planned data.

    As Eli said, standard design in CO does not deliver your requirement

    You need to either go for FM (Funds Management) or go for a user exit based logic based on your planned values

    I did it once based on KP06 values using validation exit u100 (RGGBR000).. However, I wud recommend to go for FM rather than exit as it is a standard solution

    Quite so... I saw this kind of development in one of the projects I was involved: it was tough! Certainly, not recommended...

    You should pass this message to your client.

      Hi Mr. Maheshweari,

      One of my clients has asked for the same requirement, "budget" control with respect to the plan values of the underlying cost center, which is determined via KP06 transaction.

      Could you send the sample code for the validation?

      Best regards,
