Common Errors in SAP RAR
During the recent days I have been working on SAP RAR and finally managed to get to an extend where we are now able to understand the basic in the tool. I thought that It might be useful to list down all the Errors that I have faced so far here and some people who are currently working on this might benefit from this.
|Problem||Possible Causes / Error Messages||Possible Resolution|
|1||Error during Order Creation||Item Category is relevant for both SD revRec and also SAP RAR||Go to ‘vov7’ and empty the flag for revenue recognition|
|2||RAI Not created|
|Company /Sales Og/ Item category not configured for RAR||Check the Configurations|
|Authorization of the person who created the Sale Order||Check if there are any entries in SM58 for the user id mentioning about authorization who created the SD order|
|Any other issues||1. Check in the SD order if the Revenue Relevant flag is SET. This confirms that all the basic configuration are in place
2. Check SM58 to see if any entry exists.
3. Check ST22 and SM13. Sometimes there is a possibility that dump occurs during the Update process. There has been many improvements in the update process as of RAR1.3SP03
|3||RAI not Displayed||Authorization of the person who is runnng the Transaction||Assign the needed authorization but parallel you can also Check the RAI in table level. It can be in RAW or in Processable tables.|
|4||Revenue Contract Not Created||Error Message ‘No match found for the given context (DT_PROCESS_POB_ADD)’||There can be many ways to solve this issue. In my case since there was no additional POB I had disabled the expression. I have also seen a blog which says make the setting as possible to return null value in the rule|
|Error Message ‘No number range is assigned to contract category 0001’||In my case I has assigned the numebr range but then strangely it didn’t pick up the configuration and I had to delete the config and redo it|
|Error Message ‘No productive accounting principle maintained’||Check the status of the AP assignment to the company code|
|Error Message ‘Revenue accounting period setting not defined for CoCd ‘XXXX’ AcctPr. ‘REV1’||Check the Period settings on the FARR_IMG|
|Error Message ‘SSP currency USD from BRF+ does not match with POB HARDWARE currency CNY’||Check the SSP Decision Table setting for the material combination|
|Error Message ‘Enter only one true account assignment’||This was very tricky.
In our case we had Profitability segment and also WBS assignment which the RAR was considering as true assignments.
This was raised to SAP and we implemted the note 2289833
|Error Message ‘Certain standalone selling prices are 0 unexpectedly (including 1000002 (Contract 1000001))’||SSP set up to be reviewed|
|Error Message ‘Source account missing on condition type ZZZZ for performance obligation $000000000000001’||Check the account determination on the SD side for the specific condition type|
|Error Message ‘Either a duration or an end date must be specified for perf. obligat. $000000000000001’||POB set up was not correct in the POB DT|
|Error Message ‘Performance obligation to be invoiced could not be determined (SDII/XXXXXXXXX)’||The SD01 was not processed successfully. Once the SD01 was processed this was resolved|
|Error Message ‘For item with ID SDPI/XXXXXXXX, the original item could not be found’||The SD01 was not processed successfully. Once the SD01 was processed this was resolved|
|Error Message ‘Inflight check: Error found before save to database->Contact SAP’||Solved by Note 2473987|
|5||Revenue Contract created with Error||Recognized Revenue acct. cannot derive from ref. acct. 123456 for POB $000000000000001||Check and maintain the Account Determination in Simplified BRF+ and reprocess the contract / Account Determination. IF you have multiple Accounting pronciples activate make sure that you have maintained for each of the relevant ones.|
|Error while obtaining account of deferred revenue for contract XXXXX||Check and maintain the Account Determination in Simplified BRF+ and reprocess the contract / Account Determination. IF you have multiple Accounting pronciples activate make sure that you have maintained for each of the relevant ones.|
|Required field ‘Fulfillment Type’ of performance obligation 1004003 is empty.||Check the POB decision table (The contract will only be created if this is related to leding POB)|
|6||Transfer of POC from RA into RAR||POC % from RA was not transferred into SAP RAR as fulfilment||Make sure that the Fulfilment type is Manual and implement the Note 2391711 and 2399224|
Hope this helps.
