FM Availability control is not checking Travel Request

Dear All,

We have an issue in Fund Management. The travel request is not considering as commitment and its not consuming budget. So system is not giving error message when we process travel request more than the budgeted amount. We used an user exit to control travel request within the budget amount. If the travel request amount is not considering while processing either MM documents or FI documents or HR documents then we can process more than the budgeting amount.

Example: The budget is 1000 USD. The travel request created with an estimated cost 700 USD. So the remaining amount is 300 USD. Now i am trying to process either PO or FI invoice using the amount 500 USD. System is not stopping because its not considering 700 USD as consumption. How we can consider the amount 700 USD as budget consumption. We are trying to incorporate logic as Travel request should be included in consumption but we are not able to trace the programme where exactly system will check the availability control by considering all transactions at that point.

Please let me know.

    • I have a doubt on Travel Request and FM Integration.

      I am looking for a Derivation of Commitment based on Travel Activity.

      Currently i have maintained Commitment derivation from the estimated Cost wage type/GL.

      Now what is happening is;

      1. AVC on Estimated Cost GL/Commitment.

      2. PR05, when we delete the estimated line item, Budget will be back to the commitment. But for the expenses types,we have different GLs and different commitments.

      3. i am uploading two times Budget now.. One as a total in Estimated cost GL and seconds travel break up wise in expense types G Ls

      I am confused..

      Requirement is ;

      1. Budget Check on Travel Request , based on Travel Activity. without any Duplication.

      2. We have budget bifurcation for Travel Domestic, International, Study, Business Trip Etc..

      Somebody can give some Light on this issue....

      Thanks in advance
