    Hello ,

    I think you should log this thread with the CO Gurus (PS_COS_BUD)

    but I can shave the following with you

    If availability control is active on the project of the

    receiver WBS element, the latter must have sufficiently free "own"

    (i.e. distributable) budget to cover this increase of its assigned value.

    This is explained in Note 178837,

    You could try the following

    To have budget on top WBS element only

    If you don't distribute the budget further down in the WBS hierarchy,

    all assignments will be controlled aginst the budget of the

    top WBS element, which will allow the initial assignments as well

    as the following settlements (as long as the initial asignments

    don't exceed the top WBS elements budget).

    Remark: If the top WBS element is budgeted via budget distribution from

    investment program position, please bear in mind that availability

    control has to be activated separately, e.g. via txn CJBN - see

    note 430451.


    Ignore settlements to top WBS element

    If you set a user status on the top WBS element which disallows

    business transaction 'Availability control', the settlements to the

    top WBS element will not trigger availability control error messages -

    see e.g. note 1424698, section "Reason and Prerequisites", part (C).

    Disadvantage: The update of the availability control assigned value

    will nevertheless take place, i.e. after the settlement to the

    top WBS element you will have a decreased assigned value and thus

    new free budget on the sender WBS element. So this may only make sense

    if the lower WBS elements are being closed (status CLSD) immediately

    after the settlement to the top WBS element in order to avoid

    new, additional expenses on the lower WBS elements.

    If this helps can you pelase award points

      Try doing this in CMP2 transaction. If you face the issue there increase the duration of the activity, where the employee is assigned, schedule the project and then change the hours in CMP2.

      Let me know if this works.
