Year-end Budget Carryforward - Reg.


Dear All,

We use budget release scenario in our organisation. Budget is first entered (OPER Budget type - doc type 001) and then released (RLSE budget type - doc type 002), all in the transaction FMBB (FMMPRELE is also occasionally used).

We entered $100 as the budget and released the amount entirely for purchases for the year 2011. Now during carryforward to 2012 in transaction FMMPCOVR, I first transferred the OPER budget type (doc type 001) to 2012. Now the current budget in 2011 became 0 and the available budget stayed at $100, while in 2012, the current budget was $100 (the transfered) and the available budget was 0$. When I tried to transfer the released budget from 2011 to 2012, the system throws an error that the document type 002 does not exist for budget.

In Document type definition, we defined 002 for Release (In Scenario for Value Type).

I need the 2011 released budget to become 0 and the 2012 released budget to be $100, i.e this budget too needs to be carried forward. In the absence of this, once we release the transferred budget in 2012, we have $100 available for purchases in both 2011 and 2012.

Can the experts here provide a solution as to how this can be done ?

Thanks and Regards,
