Substitute Functional Area (FKBER) in CO Assessment

Hi CO Gurus,

In normal FI posting we derive functional areas from the cost centers assigned in the line items.

However when we execute CO Assessments SAP pushes the functional area of the sender cost center to the receiver cost center even when actual functional area assigned to the receiver cost center is different.

For example,

Cost Center A - FA - FAME

Cost Center B - FA - FAAM

When we do Actual Assessment Cycle (KSU5) system transfers the cost from A to B with FAME FA only not taking FAAM in CC B.

Substitution rule created in OKC9 would work for FI postings but does not work for the CO Assessments and in both CO and FI (Reconciliation) documents Functional Area from Sender Cost Center is populated in the receiver line item.

When the trace is activated on the rule it shows that the condition in the substitution rule is TRUE i.e. met. However system still does not carry out the substitution.

Any suggestions or work-around to achieve the required results are appreciate.

Hi Sharadkumar,

No need to define substitution for derive original functional area of the cost centre. You have to select derive functional area check box in the header of the assessment cycle. Please change the cycle using KSU2. Then system will derive the original functional area of the respective cost centre.
