Error in KSPI

Dear All,

I have definedu2019 u20184 activities in our production (one Production Cost Center) scenario and we have four overhead cost centers [viz, Manufacturing OH (EE04304000), Admin OH (EE04309000), Factory OH (EE04307000) and Other OH (EE04308000] have defined a splitting rule for splitting the Overhead Cost to 4 activities and run the splitting (KSS4) and finally I execute the KSPI(Plan price),the system throws the following messages against each of above said overhead cost centers for each cost element:

Message: 1 (Warning)

Cost center CTR M001/EE04304000, cost element 600000: Tracing factor for splitting is zero

Message no. KD301

Diagnosis

The plan/actual costs for cost element 600000 cannot be settled to the CO activities for period 5 according to assignment rule M01 in cost center CTR M001/EE04304000 because the tracing factor in plan and in actual is zero.

System Response

The plan/actual costs for cost element 600000 are split according to the equivalence numbers for the activity types.

Procedure

Check assignment M01 and your splitting rule.

Message: 2 (Error)

Cost center CTR M001/EE04304000, cost element 600000: Splitting is not possible

Message no. KD302

Diagnosis

Cost element 600000 cannot be split for cost center CTR M001/EE04304000, period(s) 5, because:

u2022 the total of the activity type equivalence numbers is zero. Therefore, there is no splitting base for this cost element.

u2022 the target costs for cost object hierarchies are zero. This means there is no distribution basis for this cost element.

System Response

The values for cost element 600000 are not split. They cannot be taken into account for further processing.

Procedure

For cost centers:

Maintain the equivalence numbers for the activity types in cost center CTR M001/EE04304000 so that total is not zero.

For cost object hierarchies:

Check the cost element group in target version 0. There must be target costs in this cost element group, which the distribution can use to split the actual costs.

I have checked the splitting rule, where in I have defined the activity group & cost element group for splitting rule, which is correct to my knowledge.

Can anybody throw some light on this error, please?

Regards

Su
