Dear all,

i have implemented FM in ecc 6 ver ,while doing FB60 i got the below error.

FM account assignment SPML/DUMMY cannot be posted in posting ledger 9A

Message no. FMBS123


The budget structure settings do not allow posting to the FM account assignment SPML/DUMMY. The check of the budget structure ended with the return code 4.

The system recognizes the following return codes for the check of posting addresses:

u2022 Return code 1:

The check of posting addresses is switched on. However the FM account assignment SPML/DUMMY is missing in the budget structure. Insert this account assignment in the budget structure for the posting ledger 9A.

u2022 Return code 2:

The check of posting addresses is switched off, but the validation of posting addresses does not allow posting on this address. Check the implementation of the Business Add-In (BAdI) Validate Budget and Posting Addresses in BS.

u2022 Return code 3:

The FM account assignment SPML/DUMMY leads to a conflict when you define a grouping key within the context of the budget structure. Check the implementation of the Business Add-In (BAdI) Define Grouping Key.

u2022 Return code 4:

The derivation strategy used for deriving the budget address from the posting address derives an invalid budget address. You can use the program for displaying of budget structure settings to find out which derivation strategy is used. Check the Derivation Strategy for BudgetAddresses in Customizing. This error may also be caused by inconsistent customizing of active FM account assignment elements in BCS and FM. This can be checked in IMG activity Activate Account Assignment Elements in Budget Control System.

System Response

Processing stops.


Check the budget structure settings according to the given return code.
