Transaction FMCT Error

Former Member
0 Kudos

Dear Expert Team

While executing transaction code FMCT (i.e. Convert Documents, Supplementary Account Assignment and Reassignment), we are getting the below error:

Reassignment of account assignment element Budget Period not possible

Message no. FMCF108

Diagnosis

The Define Account Assignment Derivation is not compatible with the Define Derivation Strategy for Reassignment. The value JUNE2011 was determined for document no. 3000000009, the reassignment strategy for account assignment element Budget Period. However, this was overwritten with value through the account assignment derivation of Funds Management.

System Response

The document is not processed.

Procedure

Adjust the Account Assignment Derivation of Funds Management or the Define Derivation Strategy for Reassignment in such a way that they are compatible with each other.

We request you to suggest to come out from this error.

Thanks and Regards

Hi,

Check if note 1413158 is implemented in your system. If not - do it.

Also, if you use grants, then check out note 1260705 as well.

Additionally, you have to make the account assignment 'changeable' in the PO account assignment category via IMG - Materials Management - Purchasing - Account Assignment - Maintain Account Assignment Categories.

Dear Eli

Thank you for your reply.

We are in ECC 6.0 with EHP4.

SAP Note 1413158 is already implemented in our system.

We are not using object 'Grants'.

We are maintaining ''changeable'' for respective Account Assignment Category.

Even though we meet all above, we are getting the error.

Please revert back.

Thanks and Regards

Hi,

What is the type of the document which is mentioned in SAP message, i.e. is it PO, EMF or something else? What happens if you try to reasign another FM object (not Budget Period) for this document?

Dear Eli Klovski

We are using the type of document is PR i.e. 'Purchase Requisition" with document type PR-Services.

We are trying to reassign the combination of Account Assignment Elements i.e. Commitment Item, Fund Center, Fund and Budget Period.

We have followed the process of transactions FMCN, FMCR and then FMCT.

While executing the FMCT, we are getting said error.

Please revert back.

Thanks and Regards

Hi,

What is the account assignment category if this PR? What happens if you try to reassign only fund centre?

Dear Eli Klovski

Account Assignment Category is "K" is used for PR.

Since we are need / have maintained the combination of Account Assignment Elements i.e. Commitment Item, Fund Center, Fund and Budget Period in FMDERIVE, it is not possible to give 'Fun Centerd' only for checking.

Please revert back.

Thanks and Regards

Hi,

Please, verify again that for 'K' category the account assignment is set to 'changeable'. As for fund centre, create a sample via FMCB reassigning only fund centre for this PR and run FMCT for this PR afterwards. The reason I ask for this is that it's a bit strange that the message comes for budget period. As this is a relatively new object, the problem may be not with reassignment as such but, specifically, with budget period.

Dear Eli Klovski

Thank you for your reply.

We had already activated/selected the check box of "Changeable" for account assignment category "K".

We have now deactivating the derivation rule for 'Budget Period' for testing purpose as you suggested and followed the process of executing the transactions FMCN, FMCR and then FMCT.

Surprisingly all the objects i.e. Commitment Item, Funds Center, Fund are updated in PO except 'Budget Period'.

But we need 'Budget Period' also to be updated since we require it.

Please suggest to come out from subject error when we want to update all account assignemnt elements including 'Budget Period'.

Thanks in advance for your response.

Thanks and Regards

Hi,

Well, as I thought... As I mentioned, budget period is quite a new object and therefore there might be 'bugs' in the processes which involve it. So, you should open OSS message on your issue stating that you receive this error specifically on Budget period.

Dear Eli Klovski

Thank you for your valuable inputs. We will raise the OSS Message for the same.

We request your kind advice for the below business process which we are following for 'Budget Period' object:

1. To meet the period wise budget control requirement, we are using the "Budget Period" element.

2. For which, we have created Twelve Budget Periods in a fiscal year.

3. We have given the budget period valide 'from date' is each month start date of that period AND 'to date' is 31.12.9999. For ex. Validity of April month Budget Period is 01.04.2011 to 31.12.9999 like that for remaining budget periods we followed the same process.

4. Next, we have created FM Derivation rules to derive the respective Budget Period on the basis of range of Posting Date of document. According budget period will be triggered with respective month.

We request your kind advice on above process which we are following.

Thank in advance for your reply.

Thanks and Regards

Thanks!
