Profit center assessment - 3ke5

Hi Experts,

Need your help, I have defined the profit center assessment in the segment header under the receiving tracing factior selected actual quantities as var.portion type, senders and receivers i have given sender profit center and receiver profit centes, in the receiver tracing factor i have given the SKF, the SKF is created for sales qty, means the cost should be distributed based on sales qty of each business unit, after defining the actual assessment cycles when i try to run the cycle I am getting warning message " The segment contains no receivers ", please let me know is there any pending customisation.

This is the message i am getting

The segment contains no receivers

Message no. GA733


No receivers were found for segment ADMN.

System Response

Further processing of this segment is not possible.


Check the segment definition in the maintenance transaction for EC-PCA: Actual Assessment.

Possible errors are:

1. You have set the selection criteria for the receivers so that no valid receivers could be found.

2. The selection criteria for the tracing factor (tracing factor "Variable amounts") are not suitable for the field group selected. Example: "Actual statistical key figures" was selected as a field group, but no key figure was stored in the associated field.

3. The system cannot find any receivers due to the inheritance logic for allocations. This problem only occurs in FI-SL totals tables for which the "Inherit from sender based on the receiver" indicator is activated in the "Partner object update" screen (T811U-INHERSRC). These are tables that were installed before Release 4.6A.

To check this, use transaction GCA8 and see the section on:

Inheritance Logic for Allocations

and correct the affected cycle, if required.

    In the Variable Portion, Select "Actual SKF" instead of "Actual Qty" and then see the result

    I hope you have posted SKF for those profit centers which are specified as receivers in the allocation cycle

    If you dont want to use SKF, then see if any Sales Qty Field is available in the receiver tracing factors

    did you enter SKF for the receiver profit centers in 9KE5?

    If the receiver tracing factor is SKF, you need to enter SKF qty in 9KE5

      I am facing the same message; yet my variable portion of the receiver tracing factor is "Plan Statistical Key Figure" .. I tried many of the combinations of the T.Code "GCA8" but of No Help.

      For sure, with "Actual Statistical Key Figure" the distribution is fine.

      But What should I do if I want to use the planned values not the actual values, and also I do not want to copy the plan to the actual to proceed?
