Periodic budgeting: Issues with distribution key 2 (Distribution as before)

Former Member

Dear experts,

I'm recognizing a strange behaviour when posting with DK 2.

We use a BAPI to post several lines of Supplement, Return and Transfer postings to FM (period based).

When we use transaction FMBB for yearly budget entry, we would like to use Distribution key 2 (distribution as before).

When the BAPI lines add up to:

Period 1: 100,-

Period 2: 200,-

Period 3: 700,-

Period 4 - 12: 0,- each

I would expect the FMBB to post 100,- in the following way with distribution key 2:

Period 1: 10,-

Period 2: 20,-

Period 3: 70,-

Period 4 - 12: 0,- each

But the distribution key still posts equally 1-12: 100,- * 1/12

Distribution key 1 posts correctly in the same way.

As we use BCS, entries in the Former Budgeting Budget Profile should not be relevant in my opinion.

Do you have any hint or suggestion what to do?

Thanks a lot,

Hi Thomas,

Does it happen only with BAPI? If you post one transaction in FMBB and the next one also in FMBB with distribution key (2) as before, do you have the correct result then?
