Budget Control is not working

Hi

Even though the settings in my Tolerance Profile are correct, system is allowing me to post the expenses using FB50 Transaction for an expenditure GL.

What else to be checked in the configuration so that the system restricts the user from posting the expenses once it exceeds the tolerance limits ?

I have configured the Usage Rate (%) mode for my Tolerance Profile. My settings under Tolerance Profile are as below :

For outgoing expenses and all Activity Groups for AVC. Availability Control Event is blank in all the cases.

Order Message Type Usage Rate in %

1 Information 75%

2 Warning 90%

3 Error 100%

When I am posting the Expenses using FB50, system is not throwing any error message and posting the FI document. Also, when I check the Budget Usage with Transaction FMRP_RW_BUDCON, Consumable Budget is 49,000 Consumed Budget is 50,000, Available Amount is -1000 and Current Budget is 49,000.

I am not able to understand how did the system did not throw any error and allow me to post 1000 more. Am I missing something in the configuration ? What else needs to be checked and corrected in the configuration ?

Please advise and guide me as I need to implement Budget Control with my client effective 1st April 2011 but it got delayed and it has become critical escalation.

Thank you for your quick replies.

Regards

Gemini

    Hi.

    'When I am posting the Expenses using FB50, system is not throwing any error message and posting the FI document' - system not show only error message or warning too?

    Hope you run tcode FMAVCREINIT?

    Also check FMAVCR01(it can help to understand if there an issue with addresses or budget filters )

    Also check avc activation

    Hi Gemini,

    You have not mentioned if you are saving as completed the document in transaction FB50 but since you are not receiving an AVC error, I believe so. Please confirm this information.

    In case you are saving the document as completed, unfortunately the system is working as designed. Please refer to the consulting notes 1029068 and 573409 (issue 9).They explain the standard system logic.

    Note 1029068 is from CO but the the system behaviour is simular for fund management.

    The checks only works, if you save a document.

    However, you can the modification note 1239681 which forces the FI program to send out all warning messages from AVC (FM), when saving a document as completed. Unfortunately this is not standard, because it would somehow need some re-design of the FI application.

    I hope this helps you.

    Best Regards,

    Vanessa Barth.
