Production Order Variance Settlement to COPA

Hi All,

I am trying to settle Production order Variances to COPA - but the Variances are not getting settled.

What Configuration/steps I am doing:-

1) In the Settlement Profile I have checked "Variances to Costing-based PA".

2) Maintained a PA Transfer Structure and assigned Combination of Cost Elements and Variance Catogories to Value fields. These cost Elements are same through which the Production order is debited (Includes both Primary and Secondary Cost Elements). This PA Transfer Struture is assigned to Settlement Profile mentioned in step 1.

3) on the Production order we are issuing actual labour hours which is causing Variances.

4) Calculate the Variances on the Production Order using Tcode - KKS2.

5) Settle the Production order - At this step a Accouting Document is generated and Variance is posted in FI using the the PRD Account. But no COPA Document is been generated?

I am not using any Allocation Structure in this process and believe that is correct.

Not able to understand what I am missing.

    Hi Ankur

    I faced the same situation 2 yrs back and the reason was KKS2 was not executed in Update mode...

    i.e. If you execute KKS2 in test mode followed by KO88 or CO88 - It would generate an FI Doc.. But COPA doc wont be generated

    Please reverse the settlement and try as mentioned above... Still if it does not generate, you need to see the possibility of exit in Place (COPA0005)

      If i don't create cost element for account of PRD operation, when i check the flows between FI -> CO (T-Code: KEAT; KEAI), I find a delta for the values of the settlements.

      Is it correct ? How can i solve it ?

    Please review the note 35507 regarding the variances settlement in COPA.
