    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.

    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

    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

    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.

    in reply to: Second opinion for cost/time stimations #46730
    Cleo Isco

    Generally, there are several options for getting a second opinion on an SAP consulting firm fees:

    1. Ask another SAP consulting company (a direct competitor of the consulting firm with which you signed a contract) for an estimate of the same project / task.

    2. If you have a contract for software licenses directly with SAP SE, you can ask their expert opinion about the fees of your SAP consulting firm.

    3. You can hire an experienced SAP consultant or an SAP architect as an employee in your company and ask them to validate estimates of your SAP consulting provider.

    If you intend to work with that SAP consulting firm long term, the option 3 might be the most cost effective option.

    in reply to: Factory calendar in maintenance order #44362
    Cleo Isco

    Please verify your configuration and assignment of the factory calendars.

    If you open a work center (tcode IR03), which factory calendar is maintained on the ‘Capacities’ tab (after clicking on the ‘Capacity’ button)?

    in reply to: Vendor Managed Inventory #44360
    Cleo Isco

    Could you clarify which SAP software you are using? SAP APO or SAP S/4HANA for Retail?

    Are there any Parameters we can set or we need to set to get the vmi System work?

    As a customer in the VMI scenario, you will be responsible for:

    1. Transferring stock and sales data to your vendor via EDI (you will need to set up IDocs and connectivity with the vendor’s ERP system)
    2. Creating purchase orders for order acknowledgments received by EDI from the vendor
    3. (Optionally) you might also send information about the purchase order numbers in your SAP system to the vendor, so that they can maintain them as reference in their sales orders

    So, you will need to complete quite a few configuration activities in these 3 areas.

    Is it possible to get alerts when reaching different stock levels e.g. Max/Min stock?

    If you are using SAP S/4HANA, then you should be able to set up inventory alerts using the ‘Situation Handling’ functionality.

    Do you mean the “Completion rule” = “A” in your item category?

    Yes, you can set the “Completion rule” as blank to allow creation of additional deliveries. You can also set it to “B” to allow creation of multiple deliveries until the full quantity from the sales order item has not been completely referenced.

    in reply to: SAP Sizing #42593
    Cleo Isco

    If you are using the Quick Sizer on SAP website, then, after you create a project, it has a sidebar on the left-hand side of a screen. In the sidebar, there are nodes related to different modules of SAP S/4HANA like ‘Finance’, ‘Human Capital Mgmt.’, ‘Sales’, ‘Logistics Execution’, and so on. Please check the node called ‘Product Dev. & Execution’ for IM and MM components. You should be able to find them there.
