Availability control problem

Dear experts,

I have a question regarding the following. We currently have a project that is exceeding the budget, nevertherless, the availability control customizing is set to overall values and tolerance limit is at 105% (that´s the way it should be). This means that the operation can exceed the budget until 5% of the overall value, not the annual budget value.

After analyzing the figures, I can see that they should still be able to post actual costs, but an error of budget has exceeded comes up.

Let me explain what I did during the implementation:

1.- I assigned budget for the project in CJ30 at overall level and at year 2010 (the same amount in both).

2.- Then, I posted statistical costs in KAFD of the actual costs for year 2010 and previous years because the operation wanted this visible in SAP (they used a legacy system before).

3.- I did a carry forward of the remaining budget (available budget for 2011) in CJCO.

This is the amount they´ve been using this year. Please let me know if I did something wrong regarding the previous steps.

How then is the system showing an error message of budget exceeding if they still haven´t finished the overall 5%? The annual 5% is finished, but not the overall.

Your help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

    Hi Alex,

    The steps that you have performed are correct. Can you kindly provide the exact values for the budget and actual (for both fiscal years as well as overall). There might be some problem with the transactional data.

    Also have you checked your configuration, I mean is the correct budget profile assigned to the project?

    Regards,

    Ammar
