PSM-FM (Funds Management) tables are not being updated in S/4HANA
Lately, I saw some companies facing the same so I decided to create this blog post to help whoever is experiencing the same.
This information is valid for:
- customers that have PSM-FM (Funds Management) activated in the system (activation is done by transaction SFW5 and Enterprise Extension EA-PS) and did an upgrade in the system to S/4HANA (and the related for Funds Management is EA-PS Release 805) or
- a new installation of S/4HANA with PSM-FM activated (EA-PS in Release 805).
You find in your system that EA-PS active in transaction code SFW5. IS-PS flag is active in transaction code FIBF. PSM-FM configuration activities are correct in the IMG, basic configuration, master data, FMDERIVE, integration with other areas (such as MM) all setup in IMG, all looks ok but still FM is not updated while posting FM relevant documents (PRs, POs, MIRO, FI documents and so on).
All your operations are working correctly in the other areas but no update is being done in PSM-FM side (tables, reports) causing issues with availability control and budget consumption. If this happened after an upgrade, everything was working perfectly before the upgrade and PSM-FM was already active for a while.
For unknown reasons, sometimes one configuration setting gets lost and causes issues in FM updates. This configuration is EAFM component in table TRWCA. It should be active because you have Funds Management but the flag became blank after the upgrade of the system.
Please check if this is your case: enter SE16 and verify if field EAFM is blank in table TRWCA. If it is, you will need to activate EAFM manually in transaction SM30 and your issue will be resolved and PSM-FM tables and reports will be updated.
You find this as well in SAP documentation: 3071181 – FM document isn’t updated.
I recommend to bookmark this documentation as it will always be updated with any new information about this matter.
For the records posted before this manual activation and after the upgrade (with no records in PSM-FM tables FMIOI or FMIFIIT), you will need to reconstruct them based on the following documentation:
SAP Note 1226425 How to reconstruct FM documents from FI based on PO item
SAP Note 189761 Reconstruction of data in Funds Managemnt as of Release 4.5A
