WBS with billing and account assignment element

Dear Experts,

I have created a statistical WBSE (only one WBSE) which can be used as billing and account assignment element.

When I post a revenue tie to this WBSE, in report S_ALR_87013531 (cost/revenue), the revenue appears in the revenue column.

Then later, when I post an expense, the revenue is netted off with the expense and shown in the cost column in the report. I can no longer get the revenue in the revenue column.

When I check the report, debit type 1 is assigned in the cost column and debit type 2 is assigned in the revenue column.

When I check the line item, the revenue is having debit type 2 & the expense is having debit type 1.

I am not sure whether there is a bug in the report. I have searched OSS but could not find one.

My assumption is that a WBSE can have only one element, either a billing or account assignment element.

Why we need this is to have the same WBS to record expense & revenue, hence, reduce to create another WBSE to record revenue. No of WBSE created in a month is a lot.

Appreciate your help. Thanks.

Regards

Fauzi

    Hi Fauzi,

    I dont support your assumption - I think same WBS can be used for revenue and costs both. Disregarding the assumption do you think report is correct? Check your value category customisation and paste output here if you still have issues.

    Hi Fauzi,

    Shrikant is right.

    Same WBS can be used for revenue posting and expense posting and they will not setoff each other.

    Please check that your expense posting is coming in S_alr_87013558 report as actual or not. It must come under s..558.

    In standard SAP revenue will reflect in s..531 and cost in s..558.

    Regards,
