Hi SP,

Check the following,

Please review note 1466979 that describes the correct financial transaction assignment. If a commitment item with financial transaction larger than 40 is involved in the posting, then FI149
will be issued.

If documents have incorrect commitment items, you will need to fix them by following the instructions from note : 1226425 How to reconstruct FM documents from FI based on PO item

With the help of note 666322 you will be able to turn the trace for FMDERIVE on, and run the posting again. Then check the log and make sure that valid combinations of commitment items&financial
transactions are determined.

Please see the following chapter of the PSM-FM documentation for details
on how to configure the financial transactions of these accounts:
"Recording Actual and Commitment Data ->  Update Control -> Updating
Control: Financial Transaction and Value Type -> Example: Assigning
Commitment Items to G/L Accounts"

Hi Gavin,

Thanks for the update. I have asked my Admin team to apply the 666322 for tracing purpose.

But mean time if you could answer the below query it will be very useful for me.


1. When we created any type of PO system asks for account assignment even though it is not a service which requires the commitment item to derived from the FMDERIVER or to be given manually. otherwise we could not create a PO at all. why it has to ask for commitment item for all PO.

2. when the GR is made the material goes for Quality check in QA32. While posting the sample posting 331 movement. whether the system is deriving the commitment item from PO or from FMDERIVER.

Thanks in advance.
