Unable to Settle WBS element- Message No. KD559..


I am trying to settle a WBS element. I have maintained the settlement rule through CJIC.

Now when I am trying to settle it through CJ88 I get a message:

Message no. KD559


You are trying to use a settlement amount rule to settle an amount larger than the amount currently available.

Note that it is not appropriate to assign several line items to the same distribution rule group if you wish to settle line items. The system..

uses the distribution rule group for each line item,

meaning that the total settled amount would be the same as the total of the amounts from the distribution rules,

multiplied by the number of line items.

System Response

The system does not allow the settlement.


Check your settlement rules.

I had gone through the details I found that this is due to a negative amount maintained in the settlement rule for one receiver. I want this negative amount in the settlement rule. (The total amount of settlement rule equals the postings to the WBS)

My question stands what should I do so that it will be possible for me to settle the WBS element.

Thanks in advance.

      Hi Medha,

      Due to Month End Activity I have changed the rule and tried to settle and it worked, but I will be glad to know the reason why this happens?

      Thanks i advance.
