GGB1, Cost accounting, wbs substitution

hi,

I have created a substitution in GGB1, COST ACCOUNTING, in order to populate WBS when company code, GL and cost center are matching.

I have activated this also. but during actual FI posting the substitution is not taking place. I am trying this for bank charges GL.

Please help me out on running this rule.

Prerequisite

COBL-BUKRS = xxxx' AND COBL-SAKNR = 'xxxx0000' AND

COBL-KOSTL = 'xxxx0000'

Field is substituted by:

WBS Element Constant value B-xxxxx

    ohh.. cool.. I have also faced this issue. Do not know how you traced the problem but normally I activate the TRACE in GGB1 for the new subsitution rule and then run the t-code fb50. While running FB50, the subs rule would pop up with a msg where the pre-requisite if failing or passing. That is normally our guiding rule for validating the pre-requisite.

    Anyways. thanks for sharing ur findings.

    If you are posting in FI, then create the same rule in Financial accounting - Line items in GGB0 and activate the same in OB28.

      Created a validation in ggb0 and activated. but still no errors/substitution during FI entry.

      Entry is still getting posted with cost center only.

      Prerequiste

      BKPF-BUKRS = xxxx' AND BSEG-SAKNR = 'xxxxxx0' AND

      BSEG-KOSTL = 'xxxxxx0'

      check

      BSEG-PROJK = 'B-xxxxxxx

    Hi,

    Can you activate the trace in GGB1 and then run the transaction to see if the substitution is getting picked and true now?

    If not you need to change the pre-requisite.

    thanks,

    Akshaya.

      hi. going back to my initial post. I have created substitution using ggb1 to populate WBS for my FI entries when the co code, GL and cost center matches the pre-requisite.

      tcode used to fi posting is f-02 or fb50.

      We follow WBS as cost object, but for the purpose of bank charges we use statistical cost center for posting. I want to substitute WBS for these entries.
