    In SAP, when pricing conditions are not being pulled for a contract service in transaction ME31K (create contract), several factors could be at play.

    1. Ensure that the condition records you’ve created have valid dates that cover the period of the contract. Additionally, verify that the condition records are in an active state.

    2. Check the service master data to ensure that the service you’re trying to add to the contract is correctly maintained. Verify that the service is assigned to the correct material group, and there are no inconsistencies in its configuration.

    3. The condition records are accessed based on an access sequence defined in the pricing procedure. Ensure that the pricing procedure assigned to the contract contains the correct access sequence that references the required condition type and condition table for the service.

    4. Verify the configuration of the condition type associated with the condition records. Check its settings for access sequence, calculation rule, and requirement. Incorrect configuration can prevent condition records from being pulled.

    5. Confirm that the condition table used in the access sequence contains the necessary key fields to uniquely identify the service and other relevant criteria.

    6. Review the pricing procedure assigned to the contract and check if it’s correctly linked to the condition types and access sequences needed for the service.

    7. If you have any custom enhancements or modifications in place, they could potentially impact the retrieval of condition records. Review any custom code or configurations that might be affecting this process.

    Here are some additional possibilities to consider:

    Maintenance Plan Generation: Check how the maintenance plan was generated in SAP. If it is a dynamic plan based on equipment conditions or usage, it may lead to variations in the plan dates compared to static plans.

    Maintenance Plan Priority: SAP allows you to assign priorities to maintenance plans. If other high-priority plans or work orders are taking precedence, it could delay the execution of the current maintenance plan.

    Maintenance Plan Strategy: Different maintenance plan strategies (e.g., time-based, usage-based, condition-based) can have different triggers and scheduling mechanisms, which may cause variations in the plan dates.

    Backlog of Orders: If there is a backlog of maintenance orders or work requests in the system, it could affect the scheduling of the current maintenance plan.

    Dependencies on Materials or Spare Parts: If the maintenance plan is dependent on specific materials or spare parts, delays in the procurement or availability of these items could impact the execution dates.

    Maintenance Plan Constraints: Check if there are any constraints or restrictions set in the maintenance plan that could affect the scheduling.

    in reply to: BIN inventory – last count date and historical ones #47677

    In SAP, the LX03 transaction is used to display the stock situation for a particular storage type or warehouse number. It does not directly provide the option to view historical count dates or specify a time range. However, there are alternative approaches you can take to access historical count dates and filter the results based on a specific time range. Here’s how you can achieve that:

    Transaction LX27: To view historical count dates, you can use the transaction code LX27. Enter the warehouse number and material or storage type, and execute the transaction. It will display a list of historical inventory documents with their respective count dates.

    Inventory Management Reports: SAP provides several standard reports that allow you to analyze inventory and its history. Transaction codes like MB51 (Material Document List) or MMBE (Stock Overview) can provide historical information on inventory movements. By selecting the relevant filters and columns in these reports, you can retrieve the desired historical count dates.

    Here are some ideas for the steps:

    – Collect inventory data: Gather the historical inventory data that includes the bin IDs and their corresponding inventory dates. Ensure you have a comprehensive dataset covering the required date range.
    – Group data by bin: Organize the inventory data by bin ID to group all the inventory records for each bin together.
    – Sort data by inventory date: Sort the inventory records within each bin group in descending order based on the inventory dates. This will allow you to easily identify the last inventory date and subsequent previous dates.
    – Retrieve last inventory date: For each bin group, extract the first record to obtain the last inventory date. This will be the most recent date the bin was counted.
    – Capture previous inventory dates: Retrieve the remaining records in the bin group to obtain the previous inventory dates. These dates will represent the previous counts of the bin.
    – Generate the report: Create a report that displays the bin ID along with its last inventory date and the corresponding previous inventory dates. You can present this information in a tabular format or any other suitable format for compliance tracking purposes.

    As a Technical Business Analyst with an OT background and experience in the CTRM/ETRM domain, there are several SAP modules that could be beneficial for you to consider. Since you mentioned your interest in both functional and technical aspects, I’ll provide recommendations that cover both perspectives:

    1. SAP S/4HANA Finance (formerly SAP FI/CO): This module focuses on financial accounting, management accounting, and controlling. It is a key component of SAP ERP systems and offers a strong foundation for understanding business processes and financial aspects.

    2. SAP S/4HANA Supply Chain Management (formerly SAP MM and SD): This module covers materials management and sales and distribution. It provides insights into procurement, inventory management, sales order processing, and logistics, which are essential for understanding end-to-end supply chain processes.

    3. SAP S/4HANA Production Planning (SAP PP): This module deals with production planning and manufacturing processes. It covers areas such as demand management, capacity planning, bill of materials, routing, and shop floor control. This module would be beneficial if you have experience or interest in the manufacturing industry.

    4. SAP S/4HANA Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM): This module focuses on managing customer relationships and sales processes. It covers areas such as sales force automation, marketing, customer service, and analytics. Understanding CRM processes can be valuable for businesses aiming to enhance customer satisfaction and improve sales.

    In addition to the functional modules mentioned above, to gain a technical perspective, you can consider exploring the following areas:

    1. SAP ABAP (Advanced Business Application Programming): ABAP is SAP’s proprietary programming language. Learning ABAP would allow you to develop custom solutions, perform system configurations, and understand the technical aspects of SAP implementations.

    2. SAP HANA: This in-memory database platform is the foundation of SAP S/4HANA. Learning about SAP HANA would enable you to work with the underlying technology and optimize system performance.

    3. SAP Fiori/UI5: Fiori is SAP’s user experience (UX) design language, and UI5 is its development toolkit. Learning Fiori and UI5 would equip you to create intuitive and user-friendly interfaces for SAP applications.

    It’s important to note that each module and technical area requires dedicated time and effort to gain proficiency. Consider your personal interests, career goals, and the requirements of your organization to determine which module or area aligns best with your aspirations and the needs of your company.

    in reply to: Leave Credit Quota #47258
    Cleo Isco

    Yes, it is possible to credit leave quarterly in a single entry in SAP. To do this, you will need to make the following changes to your system:

    – Create a new leave type called “Quarterly Earned Leave”.
    – Set the base entitlement for this leave type to the number of days of leave you want to credit employees each quarter.
    – In the configuration for this leave type, set the “Period” to “Quarterly”.
    – Create a new leave accrual rule for this leave type.
    – In the leave accrual rule, set the “Start Date” to the first day of the first quarter of the year.
    – Set the “End Date” to the last day of the last quarter of the year.
    – Set the “Number of Days” to the number of days of leave you want to credit employees each quarter.
    – Save the leave accrual rule.
    – Go to the “Leave Balances” page for an employee.
    – Click on the “Add Leave” button.
    – Select the “Quarterly Earned Leave” leave type.
    – Enter the number of days of leave you want to credit the employee with.
    – Click on the “Save” button.

    The employee will now have the specified number of days of leave credited to their balance. This leave will be automatically added to their balance each quarter.

    in reply to: Cost center Accounting – Direct Activity Allocation #47112
    Cleo Isco

    It seems that the actual price maintained in KBK6 is not being considered by the system during cost allocation. One possibility could be that the “Price Control” field in the cost element master data is set to “S” (standard price) instead of “V” (moving average price) or “A” (actual price).

    When the price control is set to “S”, the system uses the standard price maintained in the material master or cost element master data, rather than the actual price maintained in KBK6, during cost allocation.

    To check the price control for the cost element, go to transaction code KA03, enter the cost element and click on the “Control” tab. If the “Price Control” field is set to “S”, you may need to change it to “V” or “A” depending on your system configuration and requirements.

    If the price control is not the issue, then it may be necessary to review the allocation parameters in KB21N to ensure that they are set up correctly and that the actual price is being used for allocation. It may also be helpful to review any user exits or custom programs that could be impacting the cost allocation process.

    It seems that you are facing an issue with the direct activity allocation process in SAP. From what you have described, it appears that the system is allocating planned costs to receivers instead of actual costs posted by FI documents.

    To resolve this issue, you need to check the configuration of your activity type and ensure that it is set up to allow for actual cost allocation. Here are some steps that you can follow:

    – Check the configuration of your activity type: Go to transaction KL02 and select the activity type you created. Ensure that the “Price Calculation” tab is set up to allow for actual cost allocation. Make sure that the “Actual Price” checkbox is selected.

    – Check the setup of your cost center: Go to transaction KS02 and select the cost center you are using for the direct activity allocation. Ensure that the “Actual Prices” checkbox is selected in the “Control” tab.

    – Check the setup of your receivers: Go to transaction KSPI and select the activity type you are using for the direct activity allocation. Check the setup of your receivers to ensure that they are set up to receive actual costs.

    – Check your allocation settings: Go to transaction KSPI and select the activity type you are using for the direct activity allocation. Check the allocation settings to ensure that they are set up to allocate actual costs.

    – Re-run the direct activity allocation process: After checking and updating the above settings, re-run the direct activity allocation process using transaction KB21N. The system should now allocate the actual costs posted by FI documents to the receivers.

    in reply to: Is SAP consultant still a good career option? #46927
    Cleo Isco
    Keymaster

    Yes, becoming an SAP consultant can still be a great career option. SAP is one of the largest enterprise software companies in the world, and its software is used by many organizations across different industries. This means that there is a high demand for SAP consultants who can help organizations implement and customize SAP software to meet their specific business needs.

    However, it is important to note that the SAP consulting industry is competitive, and there are many other professionals who also specialize in SAP. To be successful as an SAP consultant, you need to have strong technical skills, as well as excellent communication and problem-solving skills.

    Moreover, SAP is constantly evolving, and as an SAP consultant, you need to keep up with the latest developments and updates in the SAP software. You may need to continuously update your EWM, MM, and QM skills and knowledge to stay relevant and competitive in the industry.

    in reply to: FAGL_CL_REGROUP #46926
    Cleo Isco
    Keymaster

    FAGL_CL_REGROUP is a transaction code in SAP ERP that allows you to regroup GL accounts. This transaction is used to reorganize the general ledger accounts by changing their assignment to other accounts or creating new accounts.

    FAGLF101 is a standard SAP transaction code used for the balance sheet and profit and loss (P&L) statement in SAP. It is used to display the general ledger balances of accounts for a specific fiscal year and period.

    In terms of hard currency reclassification, it is important to understand that SAP uses a three-dimensional reporting approach, where you can report on data by company code, functional area, and the currency type. The FAGLF101 transaction will display the balances for each of these dimensions separately.

    If the hard currency reclassification is not working in FAGLF101, it could be due to several reasons. One of the common reasons is that the hard currency is not assigned to the account in question. To reclassify a hard currency, you need to assign it to the account using the transaction code FS00.

    Another reason could be that the hard currency reclassification rules are not defined correctly. You can define these rules using the transaction code FAGL_FC_VAL.

    It is also possible that the account in question has already been reclassified, and therefore, the hard currency reclassification is not available for that account.

    General Maintenance Task List: these are task lists that are used for general maintenance tasks. As a result, they can be used for both equipment and functional location. They are not specific to any technical object. General maintenance tasks allow you to define and manage a sequence of maintenance tasks and use them for scheduling.

    Functional Location Task List: this list is assigned to a specific functional location. Consequently, you can use a functional task list to centrally define and manage maintenance tasks for your functional location.

    More information in the SAP PM Task List tutorial.
