to disactivate FM for a given company code


I am making some testing and I have the message below:

Company code Z002 is not assigned to an FM area

Message no. FI011


You have tried to activate Cash Budget Management or Funds Management in your company code Z002. The master data for the two components is created with reference to an FM area.

When postings are made, the system must determine an FM area for transfer of the data to Cash Budget Management or Funds Management. The FM area is derived from the company code. For this reason, you must assign company code Z002 to an FM area.

System Response

Activation not possible.


Make this assignment in the Enterprise Structure IMG, under Assignment -> Financial Accounting -> Assign company code to FM area. To make this assignment, you must already have created the FM area.

I don t want to activate FM for this company code. I checked tcode OF32 , the fiscal year variant is not linked to FM area. I checked OF18 , and there is no FM area. Where can I find the link that still exist for the company code and FM.




Unfortunately the activation of EA-PS is per client, not per company code. When you activate PSM-FM (funds management) it is active for all the client (instance of the system).

In case you have cross company code postings, and one company have FM area and the other one does not have FM area and the minimum customizing settings, it will not work and you will receive error FI011.

If you want to post an accounting document from a company code with a activated funds management to a company code without an actived funds management, the error message FI011 will appear.

It is not possible to post this document. Currently, it is not possible to split the FM posting among active and unactive organizations within the same posting; furthermore, there are no plans to change this restriction.

Funds Management does not allow multiple company code/plants posting when not all company code/FM areas are active in FM. In other words, if you post using two company codes, both organizations MUST be active because from this posting, one or multiple FM documents will be generated.

In both of the company codes the funds management has to be activated.

Even if the posting is not FM relevant, there is no way to avoid the fact that all the company codes used in cross company postings need to be assigned to an FM area.

In the case of cross-company-code Funds Management, you can combine several company codes in a single FM area.

You must assign all the company codes in question to the same FM area.

In this case you have to maintain a minimal Customizing (including account assignment), in case of nothing should happen in the

second company code. But without a assignment of a FM area, it is not possible.

You have two options. The first one, is to to split manually this posting into two using the company code (without FM active) for one and company code (with FM active) for another one.

I hope you understand that there are many restrictions within the source code and logically for not to do the kind of scenario that you are describing, it is not only the error message displayed but the FM updating as well as the FM account assignment derivation among other restrictions.

Another option is available in the note 122581, please read it carefully. So, you can split manually the posting or create a dummy FM Area to the company codes without FM active.

Please also check documentation in the IMG Activity:

Funds Management Government->Actual and Commitment Update/Integration -> Activate/Deactivate Funds Management

I believe that this answers your inquiry. I am sorry that I do not have a more positive answer than that.

Best Regards,
