Transfer of Secondary Cost from WBS to WBS

For assistance. We have a secondary cost element used for confirmation and settles to WBS. this secondary cost element has category 43 (internal activity allocation) which cannot be used for manual allocation or reposting. We tried also the activity allocation, but it doesn't work because it is charged to a WBS element. We tried to settle them, but it appears that these cost were left unsettled over the years, so this cannot be done because there are settlement already run current year. How can we transfer the cost to another wbs using this cost element? or how can we settle it without reversing the current settlement? Thank you.

    Hi Jenelyn,

    Use KB15N.try to executed the transaction in your test system first and if results are as expected, try to use in your production system.

    Thanks,

      Exception to the rule of KB15N is the cost element with category 43. This is allowed thru a distribution cycle, but the charge account used is a WBS. All for assessment or allocation cycle are from a Cost Center. Thank you.

    Hi Jenelyn,

    Good Day!!!

    I understand as below: There is some balance in WBS on Secondary Cost Element (43) unsettled for years and current year settlement is already over. Then how to settle this old value as well? If this is correct, try settlement run (CJ88) by selecting 'Processing Type' as 'Full Settlement' which clears all the unsettled values so far. Try in test client and proceed accordingly.

    Let me be corrected, if my perception is wrong. Thank you.

    Warm Regards,

      Hi CMA Ramesh Kolluru ! Thank you for the response. However, we cannot settle it even if we set full settlement. The Error we encountered is the same, "Settlement before period xx xxxx is only possible after reversal".

      Thank you.
