During settlement, the system puts the sender debits into groups
(assignments), which are settled using the same settlement cost element. The
settlement assignment is made in the allocation structure, which is stored in
the settlement rule for the sender (under settlement parameters).
element 1421 cannot be assigned to a settlement cost assignment in allocation
structure R1, and therefore it cannot be assigned to a settlement cost


Possible solutions are as follows:

  • If the posting under cost element 1421 was made to the sender because of an
    incorrect entry, and you can reverse the posting, and do not need to update the
    allocation structure. You only need to reverse the incorrectly assigned posting
    before repeating the settlement. Exception: For an investment measure with a
    line item settlement, you need to extend the allocation structure, even after
    the reversal.

  • If the posting was made correctly, you can do the following:

      a) You can assign a different allocation structure to the sender: In the

    master data maintenance for the sender, choose "Settlement rule -> Goto ->
    Settlement parameters" and then enter a different allocation

      If necessary, also check whether the correct allocation structure is entered

    in the settlement profile. The allocation structure is defaulted in the
    settlement profile when you create sender master data or when you maintain the
    settlement rule.

  • You can update allocation structure R1
