PCA Functional Area Report Problem With Co-Product Settlements
I have built a profit center functional area report for use in a manufacturing client. The reason is because the factory cost centers flow to the product cost (via costing sheets) and the administrative cost centers are expensed monthly. However, SAP seems to have no other approach to handle the issue where common expense elements must be reported in these two separate sections. Anyway, here is my problem:
After creating the functional areas and matching them to each cost center appropriately and then applying a different functional area to orders, I see that settlement of co-products causes my report to zero out the functional area that should match the overhead cost centers. These obviously should not be impacted by settlement and I see that they are not impacted in the transactional data. However, the functional area report shows a different story. I believe it somehow has to do with the unusual way that co-product split up and settle versus other types of orders. I may need some sort of subtitution rule, but like I said, the raw transactional data looks correct and the report should bring in these values.
I used ledger 8A if that helps. I am sure I missed some small thing somewhere.
