RA key missing on WBS billing element - need to cancel settlement

Good day,

I have the following scenario with a WBS in a project that needs to be closed:

  • WBS element was created and released
  • At some point the billing element indicator was unchecked and the RA key removed
  • Some time later the billing element was checked again but the RA key was not added back in again
  • Revenues were posted against the WBS from Resource Related Billing
  • Cost and time posted to the activity assigned to the WBS was settled to the WBS
  • All of the above happened in the previous fiscal year that has been closed

Problems:

  • When trying to run settlement error message KD503 is generated indicating that a revenue Cost element needs to be added to the relevant allocation structure
    • This is not an option to update the allocation structure
    • Postings causing the issue from the previous closed fiscal year
  • Due to settlement not being able to run there is still an outstanding balance on the WBS and it cannot be closed
  • The RA Key can also not be updated as it requires settlement to first be cancelled
  • With the RA key missing RA did not ran for this WBS

How can this problem be addressed?

Kind Regards,

Willem Fourie
