Status Replace by measure in the appropriation request

Hi,

This is a question for IM experts ( I am not sure If it is the correct forum),

We need an appropriatrion request change its status to replaced by measure, but measure ( WBS) is not going to be created from the measure even if from CJ20 transaction and then is associated to the AR.

Is this possible?

Thanks,

Sara

    Hi all,

    This is my actual flow:

    Create Appropriation request ( attached to a investment program) --> create a project ( from AR) --> Change status Replaced by measure --> when budget is approved my WBS is linked to program position (IM52).

    Now we can draw this flow :

    Create Appropriation request ( attached to a investment program) --> create a project ( from CJ20) --> attach project to AR when budget is approved my WBS is linked to program position (IM52).

    In this second case WBS doesn't appear in IM52 linked to the porgram and I suppoused that the problem was related to the status of the AR.

    Thanks,

    Sara

      This worked for me. I am able to see the WBSE in IM52 which is manually assigned to AR.

    Thanks a lot for your help,

    The problem Is we have a WBS assigned to a AR and AR assigned to investment program, when AR is approved we need have WBS assigned to program inversion to share the budget but we have to :

    1) delete AR --> WBS assigned

    2) assign WBS to PI

    to achieve thisis.Budget is approved for several WBS if we make step 1 we lost the relation

      HI SAP IM expert,

      In order to meet the need of my customer, we made a program ( with BAPI ) in order to automatically create the Appropriation request and the project definition and Wbs by uploading a file...first steps works fine until the creation of the WBS

      the assignment of WBS to approriation request is not possible , receiving error message project definition does not exist but when I check the project definition via cj03 , I find my project !!! I checked also that the field INACT is empty in ia table PROJ ,

      How can I assign a WBS to an appropriation request ??

      Need helps please ?

      the problem is that I turn in round , I don't know if something is missing of or the order of the objects created is correct

      1) Appropriation Request ( via Bapi BAPI_APPREQUEST_CREATE )

      2 )BAPI_TRANSACTION_COMMIT and wait

      3)Activate Project Definition to assign WBS Element for Appr.Requ (CJDW_PROJ_ACTIVATE_IM)

      4)Change now the Appr.Request to add the WBS Element. (BAPI_APPREQUEST_CHANGE)

      5 BAPI_TRANSACTION_COMMIT and wait

      6)Create WBS Element (BAPI_PS_INITIALIZATION after BAPI_BUS2054_CREATE_MULTI)

      7)BAPI_PS_PRECOMMIT

      8) BAPI_TRANSACTION_COMMIT and wait

      *Error message received WBS element BE/10/IPKG/1404/D-056 does not exist*

      *Message no. ABPS021*

      Please need helps...

      Regards

    AR bears the approval levels, Cash flow statistics, NPV, IRR , Pay Back period calculations

    Project is the Executing object of the concept where as AR is the pre project Investment Request which justifies the Investment.

    Even though we delete the AR (replace with measure),,, without this Investment decisions cannot be taken.

      1. You need not delete the AR. The process flow inherits a standard functionality of replacing the AR with your measure.

      2. Either you maintain "Replace with Measure" against the AR type in customizing OR manually select the replace with measure status once the measure is ready.
