Legacy data strategy for FM data

Hi Guys:

I have a question regarding legacy data strategy for FM data. Planned go live date is 31 December. We will have having 6 month backlog data to upload in system that will be from different modules..For FM what should be strategy...Client fiscal year is July to June..They want to enter budgets in system and also their consumption in those six months so that proper budget reporting could be drawn ...How will this be achieved ..For me , balanced are uploaded GL wise in one who will this induce budget consumption at that point in time. e.g

If client has fund center whose approved budget for a fund center at 1st July is 10 Million . During the six month while entering data in legacy system he will be consuming this budget ..Let us say he used 4 M of it during six month till 31 December which is Go live date..Now i understand that i can enter a budget of 10 M for that fund center but how to cater its consumption which has already been posted in legacy system.I can not post transaction data for six months in SAP just to show it consumption proportion, but client is insisting on having a report on Budgeted amount and its consumption done. Please guide me.

    Hi Atif,

    Normally, during the cut-off, the figures which are uploaded represent the situation for this moment, i.e. non consumed budget. I wouldn't recommend uploading the whole budget and then artificially consume it with the legacy data. Though, if your customer insists on this, then technically it could be done. Just your consumption data should be loaded after FM is activated, thus it will have an impact on FM tables, exactly as a normal transaction.
