Automatic budget posting after fiscal year change - BCS


I'm working in ECC 6 in public sector using BCS.

I configured the Automatic budget posting after fiscal year change.

there is also a derivation strategy defined.

When I reduced a purchase order, I supose to have a budget posting through automatic budget posting by using the report FMEDD.

I choose document year 2011, and I choose field Original application "ABP", and I have the message "No document exists matching your selection".

Can you help about the automatic budget posting? is there something missing in customizing?

or is there another transaction to display the postings?

Thank you for your support,

    To make the Automatic Budget Posting working, you have to activate PBET, Period Based Encumbrance Tracking.

    This activity can be found under IMG activity :

    Public Sectot Management/ Funds Management Government/ Actual and Commitment Update/Integration/General Settings/

    Override Update Profile.

    Technically speaking, the PBET function will create the ABP document number, field FMIOI-TRANR which is then copy to budget header field FMBH-XBLNR. PBET somehow is use to integrate FM updating module with BCS module.

    Each change for example done with the purchase order is stored under a unique Identifier, field FMIOI-TRANR. Based on this identifier, the budget document is uniquely created, only once. In conclusion, without PBET, ABP cannot work.

    PBET is active in your system either for your whole FM update profile or for individual value types. To check this you can use transaction OF39. This is part of the basic PBET logic, which aims at recording a detailed change history of every single document in FM.

    For more details on this, please also refer to the program documentation and chapter Public Sector Management -> Funds Management -> Recording Actual and Commitment Data -> Period-Based Encumbrance Tracking.

    Please read also in the Knowledge Warehouse documentation, the consequence of PBET activation.

    I hope this helps.

    Best Regards,

    I still have trouble with Automatic Budget Posting.

    ABP is customized now, and the open purchase order from last year are already carryfowarded to this current year.

    Is it possible to activate ABP in the middle of the year? or is it better to do it end of year before carryforward?

    When I reduce purchase order from last year which is carryfowarded to this year, I should have an automatic budget posting but the system does not create any document.

    Thanks for you help,

    Kind regards,
