Process Order Reconciliation – How to post backdated entry to reduce the actual activity cost on process order

Scenario :

Goods issue, Confirmations,GR completed for process order and Techncially closed. Now the status of the order is TECO.It’s observed that actual cost for activity was confirmed at higher rate as maintained in KP26. Requirement is to reverse the confirmation, correct the activity rate in KP26 and do confirmation again and post as as per old posting date.

Complexity Involved:

  • Periods are closed and not possible to open as per business decisions
  • GR completed un-restricted stock got delivered and now stock is Zero.
  • Activity cost to be reveresed as per posting dates of the order not in current posting period.
  • Quantity adjustments should be not  be done only activity cost should be changed.

How to Handle:

This type of issue can be addressed through manual adjustments using tcode KB21N

Procedure to POST manual CO entry to correct the activity cost without effecting quantity with back dated.

Step 1: Display Process Order : ( Get he Sender, Activity  Type Details) -Tcode (COR3)

Process order 1005277 displayed below shows status as TECO,CNF and DLV is refered as example for posting CO entry.

Enter the below information in two lines as shown in below screen shot.

Note: Change the document date and posting date as required. Back dated posting is possible without opening any MM periods. If back dated posted, as on date report will come correctly. This is based on no dependnecy like Overhead, WIP and variance calculation on TECO order.

  • Send CCtr (Sender Cost Center) – 200950
  • SAtyTyp (Sender Activity Type) – LABST
  • Rec.Order (Receiver Order) – 1005277 (Process order number where it should be effected) 
  • Total Quantity : -1 (Minus 1)
  • Total price per unit of measure : (Difference price which we want to book on the order + 0.01) – (For this test data i have taken difference as 29.50)

Item No 2 data:

  • Send CCtr (Sender Cost Center) – 200950
  • SAtyTyp (Sender Activity Type) – LABST
  • Rec.Order (Receiver Order) – 1005277 (Process order number where it should be effected)

    Hi Ramagiri,

    Thanks for sharing the work around to adjust the activities backflush instead of reversing the whole confirmations.

      Hi Anupam,

      You are right. In some cases it’s difficult to do reversal of entire confirmation process. This work around solution will be better option of correcting the actual activity cost without effecting the qty.

      Thanks & Regards,

      Ramagiri
