Balance Carry Forward & Break Down Category

Former Member

Dear collegues,

When we run Balance Carry Forward task system uses movement type default value (defined in WORKBENCH > MASTER DATA > SUBASSIGNMENTS > DEFAULT VALUES) in items to which the movement type is required in accordance with the Breakdown Category.

Does anyone knows how is it possible to define a diferent default movement type just for this task?

What happens now is that every time we need to carry out a balance forward we must perform a customizing change.

One suggestion is to change the movement type master data to determine the carryforward values.

However in this case it appears that the breakdown may have been changed after some data was loaded with blank movement types before making it required. In this case I suggest you change the breakdown to required with default not allowed and execute the breakdown check in the workbench for the prior year. This will allow you to enter the desired movement type values after which you may re-execute the balance carryforward.
