Funded Program problem for month crossover

Hi experts,

We have activated BCS for our client and are maintaining Funded programs on a monthly purpose for budgetary control. However I am facing a problem when a PO raised in the month of December is processed for MIRO in the month of January.

The system is giving an error message that Funded Program 201209 is not valid at set date xxxx (in January). I understand that this is a logical problem because while creating the PO the funded program derived was 201209 for the month of December 2012. However in the month of January 2013 when the MIRO is being processed the funded program derived is 201210. My question is how we can eliminate this error.

Please note that we are allocating the budget on a monthly basis based on Funded Program. The funded program 201209 is maintained in the following manner:

Valid from: 01.12.2012

Valid to: 31.12.2012

Expiration Date: 31.12.2012 ..... so on.

Waiting for your invaluable inputs,

Regards,

AyanM.

    Hi Mukherjee

    Don't give funded program valid date as 01.12.2012 to 31.12.2012, instead of that maintain validity as for example 01.04.2012 to 31.12.9999, so that you can derive funded program based derivation rules. Say for example based on posting date. So while creation of PO system will be derived respective funded program based on PO creation date.

      Hi Mukherjee

      Yes you can do it. You can load the 12 months budget at a time (funded program wise) or else load the budget month wise at the beginning itself with respective combination (Mass uploading and Budget uploading BAPIs are available), this is up to your choice. While posting of transactions respective combination of objects will be derived and month wise control will be enabled. Also you have an option of Earmarked Funds by creation of provision commitments, blocking, reservations etc.,

      Commitments will be converted to actual, once actual postings are being posted, We have a standard reports which will be showing as month wise Budget Vs Consumptions and also you can draw customized reports according to your client requirement.

    Hi AyanM,

    Allocate budget on a monthly basis is quite normal. If I understand your problem correctly, You need to tweak your derivation rules (FMDERIVE). During PO creation the funded program is pointed to one period but when you do MIRO, it is pointed to funded program in another period. Thsi is purely due to the derivation rule.

    Please let me know your rules for PO and MIRO. Also please try to simulate in FMDERIVE.

    Thanks
