Creating 2 Result Analysis version with different RA Method for 2 ledgers

0 Kudos

Hello,

We are trying to post differently on ledgers with 2 different Result Analysis Method for the same controlling area.

Unfortunately, after having created the CO version and assigned it to the CO area, while in OKG3, the message KQ278 "Results analysis version ** has reference variant. Display only pops-up".

I can see that this related to the fact that 2nd CO version is also set as Actuals for the same controlling area but is there any way to overcome this issue?

Thanks,

Yannick

Hi Yannick,

You would need a second RA version that is posting to another Accounting Principle (Ledger Group) in FI.

In the second RA version you will get a different RA method behind the same RA key.

And CO version is not the same as RA version.

Hello Paulo,

Thanks for answering.

I agree that CO version is not the same as RA version.

However, from my point of view, we cannot create an RA version (Tcode OKG2) without creating the corresponding CO version (Tcode OKEQN).

Regarding your first sentence (You would need a second RA version that is posting to another Accounting Principle (Ledger Group) in FI.)

That's what we're trying to achieve. Basically, in TCode OKEQN, we have version 0 (with actuals & WIP/RA ticked) and version 13 (with actuals & WIP/RA ticked) for our controlling area When going into OKG2, there is no issue for modifying version RA Version 0.

The issue comes when trying to add version 13. It seems that it automatically takes the same values as version 0. But we have never defined version 0 as a reference for version 13

Regarding your second thought (In the second RA version you will get a different RA method behind the same RA key), we cannot even modify the RA method as it is copied from the version 0. All information are not modifiable.

Thanks,

Yannick

Couldn't add that one to the previous post

Hello Yannick,

1. In the OKG3 your key contains RA version, so for second version and the same RA key you will define a different method.

2. If you need multiple actual versions in CO you need to set up Currency and Valuation profile and assign it in the CO Area settings.

Paulo

Hello Sandip,

Thanks for the answer.

Unfortunately, we don't want only to post to different ledger with different accounts. We also want to define a different RA method for the new RA version.

Meaning for one RA version we would like to post one ledger with Result Analysis Method 03 and for the other RA version to post on a second ledger with RA Method 09. And with both RA versions allowed to settle to FI accounting.

Thanks,

Yannick
