Hi,

We have a requirement where in client is willing to settle wbs to balance sheet GL and a cost center.

I have Maintained GL account in settlement rule and it is getting settled to GL. However, it is not picking cost center while settlement and cost center is blank in settlement accounting entry.
at the same time, client is willing to take 415 transaction type in the settlement GL acccount.

Kindly help me to achieve it!!


Regards,

Fanisa

Hi Fanisa,

It sounds as a contradicting requirement, because standard SAP is allowing Cost Center postings only for P&L accounts (cost elements).

Or do you want just to populate a Cost Center on the BS account posting?

Maybe you can explain the business requirement and not the solution.

Regards,

Paulo

Hi Pauli,

Thanks for your reply.

I will put it in a simpler way

Doc posted with wbs

DR GL 1234 with wbs

CR GL 4567 with cost center

Expected entry after settlement

CR settlement GL(b/s) with cost center and Ttype 415

DR GL 1234 with wbs


or vice versa


I hope it makes sense now 🙂

Hi Fanisa,

I think you have mixed up DR and CR on the settlement posting.

Where this Cost Center should be coming from?

Apologies for the confi

It’s CR GL 1234 with wbs

DR settlement GL with cost center and ttype 415

Cost center should be coming from source doc.

Hi Fanisa,

Sorry but you better need to redesign the flow, in my opinion you will not get it with a settlement process.

Can we achieve it through substitution??

Hi Fanisa,

1. Substitutions do not work in a settlement process. This is depending on a system version stricktly speaking (not sure about 3.1H), but not in S/4. This is to the best of my knowledge, but you can validate this on your own.

2. There is a summary settlement (commonly used) and a line items settlement, but second option comes only from the IM profile when you settle from AuC to AA. Normally system does not settle each document individually, so there can be multiple partner Cost Centers for the original postings. And line item settlement assumes a maintenance of settlement rules for each line item, which is an exceptional process by definition.

Hi Pauli,

As of now I maintained settlement rule with b/s GL, it is posting below entry after settlement, as expected.

DR settlement GL

CR GL 1234 with wbs.

However, I need cost center and transaction type 415 in DR settlement GL.

Can this be achieved through substitution?
