Customizing: Account Determination .

Accrual Engine documents are created in the Accrual Engine.Customizing: Account Determination  When posting Accruals. Title of Presentation. an Accounting document with two line items is created from the Accrual Engine document.  When the Accrual Engine documents are transferred to Accounting (which is usually done automatically when they are posted). Speaker Name 55 . These documents consist of only one line item without GL accounts and without CO assignments like cost center etc.  At this point in time. the Accrual Engine account determination is executed to get the following information:  Start account account type  Target  Document © SAP AG 2002.

the ‘Process in the Accrual Engine’ and ‘Accrual Type’ determine the start and target account customizing entries in these self-defined customizing tables!  Create © SAP AG 2002. which dimensions determine the accounts and document type! E.g.Customizing: Account Determination  The customizing of the account determination is done in two steps:  Define the customizing tables for the account determination The customer can define himself.

Possible dates are then e. Speaker Name 66 . Title of Presentation.g. © SAP AG 2002. Example: If the frequency is ‘Per posting period’. … But not dates like 01/01/2000 or 02/15/2000. then only the last day of a period is allowed as key date.Periodic Accrual Run: Customizing  The allowed dates which can be used as key date in the periodic accrual run are determined by the ‘frequency’ which is entered in the posting control of the accrual type. 01/31/2000. 02/29/2000.

After the periodic accrual run was executed for 01/31/2000.Periodic Accrual Run: Execution Type  Usually.

Periodic Accrual Run: Log  The already executed periodic accrual runs are logged on company code level. Title of Presentation. Speaker Name 68 .  You can display the log in the entry screen of the periodic accrual run by ‘Environment -> Log of Periodic Accrual Runs’: © SAP AG 2002.

Title of Presentation.1!  Background for this restricted possibility to enter ‘past’ key dates: If there were already periodic accrual runs in future fiscal years.Periodic Accrual Run: Key Dates in the Past  It might be necessary that an accrual run is executed with key date 01/31/2000 despite there was already an run on 02/29/2000. but this message can be switched off with the OBA5 transaction. Consequence: Accrual runs in future years have to be repeated. Speaker Name 69 . if key date 01/31/2000 is entered on the entry screen of the periodic accrual run.  By default. Support Package SAPKGPAA12 is required as prerequisite in release extensions 1.0 / 1. The system will send error message ACEPS 055. © SAP AG 2002.  Solution: Enter the key date 01/31/2000 and(!) set the execution type to ‘Repeat’. the values which were posted in these future years are then wrong. this is forbidden by the system: An Error message (ACEPS 054) is sent.

Speaker Name 76 .Manual Accruals: Interface for Creating Accrual Objects  In the application component ‘Manual Accruals’. but SAP also delivers an interface for creating accrual objects. The report would work in the following way:  Select contract-like data which is to be accrued. Title of Presentation.  Save the transformed data as accrual objects in the Accrual Engine.  Easier way: SAP delivers a sample report which can be  used for transferring vendor invoices into the Accrual Engine and it can be  reused for transferring data from any source to the Accrual Engine (see next slides) © SAP AG 2002.  The interface is the function module ACAC_OBJECT_MODIFY_EXT  There are two ways to use this interface:  Customer can develop a report to create accrual objects using this interface. accrual objects are created manually. The data can be selected from any source!  Transform the selected data into the format that is needed by the interface.

Manual Accruals: Automatic Datafeed (5) Definition of selection methods: © SAP AG 2002. Title of Presentation. Speaker Name 81 .

 SAP deliveres sample selection methods for the transfer of vendor invoices into the Accrual Engine.  Please study also the F1 help for the field ‘selection method’ on the entry screen of the sample report ACAC_DATA_TRANSFER_EXAMPLE and study also the program documentation of this report. Title of Presentation.  In the source code. © SAP AG 2002.Manual Accruals: Automatic Datafeed (6)  Selection methods consist of two parts: A function module for selecting the data which shall be transferred into the Accrual Engine. This function module must also transform the data into the format that is required by the Accrual Engine. there’s a documentation of the function modules that are used in the sample selection methods (Function modules ACAC_DATA_TRANSFER_EXAMPLE_1 and ACAC_DATA_TRANSFER_EXAMPLE_2). Speaker Name 82 .  A DDIC-Structure which contains the fields which are to be displayed by the sample report as results list.

 Of course.  But since all the program logic of the data transfer program is identical for all data sources.g. Title of Presentation.  Some includes for the program logic (e. includes ACAC_GENERIC_DATA_TRANSF_M10 and ACAC_GENERIC_DATA_TRANSF_F10). © SAP AG 2002. SAP separated the selection screen from the program logic in the following way:  The sample report consists only of a few includes:  One include for each subscreen on the selection screen E.g. From this it is clear.Manual Accruals: Automatic Datafeed (7)  A problem for the selection methods are the select-options: The sample report must ‘tell’ the function module (e.g. Speaker Name 83 . the required select-options and parameters of the data transfer report depend on the source from which the data are selected. that the selection-screen of the sample report is not suitable for all selection methods: The selection screen of the sample report ACAC_DATA_TRANSFER_EXAMPLE was made for selecting vendor invoices. ACAC_DATA_TRANSFER_EXAMPLE_1) which data to select. include ACAC_DATA_TRNSF_SELOPT_EXAMPLE.

First. the report ACAC_DATA_TRANSFER_EX AMPLE has to be copied into the customer name space to avoid modifications.Manual Accruals: Automatic Datafeed (8)  The includes marked with red lines can be replaced by customer-defined includes which contain the selectoptions that are required. not the includes! Aferwards. Speaker Name 84 . Only the main program has to be copied. Title of Presentation. the includes can be replaced by customerdefined includes.   © SAP AG 2002.

 A similar logic is used for the accrual parameters: All select-options which have the addition ‘MODIF ID ACP’ are put into the table IT_ACCRUAL_PARAMS and passed to the function module of the selection method. Title of Presentation.Manual Accruals: Automatic Datafeed (9)  How the select-options are transferred from the selection screen to the function module that is used by the selection method:  Since the interface of the function modules (used by selection methods) are generic. © SAP AG 2002. Speaker Name 85 . This table is then passed to the function module of the selection method.  This works in the following way: The sample report scans the selection screen and puts all selectoptions into this table which have the addition ‘MODIF ID SEL’. the select options are contained in an internal table (parameter IT_GENERIC_SELOPT).

© SAP AG 2002.Manual Accruals: Automatic Datafeed (10) The addition ‘MODIF ID SEL’ is important in the include with the select-options for the data selection. Speaker Name 86 . Title of Presentation.

 Revenues  Costs

(Accrual Type RVNUES):

300 EUR 100 EUR

(Accrual Type COSTS):

 In the first period (1/2000) these values were posted correctly.  Now let us assume that the customer forgets to carry out the accrual run in 2/2000.  The next accrual run is carried out in 3/2000.  The Accrual Engine then calculates that in 3/2000 the accrued values should be:
 Calculated  Calculated

Revenues: Costs:

Posting of Accounting Docs with the Accrual Engine .

 Periodic accrual postings These postings post a certain value which is calculated by the accrual method.  Final postings If the posting of accrual has to be terminated before the full value has been (periodically) accrued. © SAP AG 2002. Title of Presentation. when the accrual object is created. Speaker Name 172 .  Other types of postings which are less important  These postings have been explained in examples in detail before.Accounting Docs: Basics Of The Accrual Engine  The accrual engine does accrual postings: If the corresponding accrual type is customized accordingly then the accrual engine executes one. several or all of the following type of postings:  Opening postings The full amount which is to be accrued is posted. It is usually posted from the accrual account to a P&L account.  Each posting creates an accrual engine document and this document is transferred automatically to accounting. These postings are executed by the periodic accrual run which is usually started at the end of each period. then the remaining value is posted to a certain account. This value is usually a part of full value (which is to be accrued). usually to an accrual account. This posting is executed.

 The transfer of accrual engine documents to accounting consists of the following steps:  The system transforms the accrual engine document into a (temporary/preliminary) two-line document. These documents are not saved.the CO document. this document is transferred to accounting by calling the BAPI BAPI_ACC_DOCUMENT_POST. Finally. This BAPI creates all the documents in accounting. which is required by the BAPI. Speaker Name 173 . the summarized documents can be modified with the BAdI ‘ACEPS_BAPIDOC_MODIFY (see IMG of the accrual engine). the key date which is used as translation date and as default posting date in accounting. to which accrual object it belongs.Accounting Docs: How They Are Posted  The accrual engine document consists of one line item only: This line item contains the value which is to be posted. After this step. These accounting documents are saved in the corresponding database tables. The system summarizes the two-lined documents and transforms them into another format. this temporary document can be modified with the BAdI ‘ACEPS_BAPIPREDOC_MOD’ (see IMG of the accrual engine). These temporary documents are not saved. It also contains the reference. see next step.   © SAP AG 2002. After this step. like the FI document and –if required. Title of Presentation. too.

Included in this structure is the DDIC structure ACEPS_BAPI_PRELINEITEM which contains all the fields which are filled in the line item of the accounting document.   It might be necessary from the customers point of view that some fields have to be populated which are   available in the BAPI interface (e.

© SAP AG 2002. Because of this. Speaker Name 179 . Fields in Special Ledgers  A more complex problem are customer-defined fields in a Special Ledger: It might be necessary that these fields are populated when documents are posted by the accrual engine. i.  The task is to transport the values of the customer-defined fields from the accrual engine. through the accounting interface into the special ledger.e.Customer-Def. the fields cannot be populated by postings which are done by the accrual engine in standard.  The following slides visualize the problem and its solution. Title of Presentation. through the BAPI which creates the accounting documents. inhancements like BAdIs are necessary to solve this problem.  The problem is that the customer-defined fields do not exist in the BAPI interface (DDIC structure BAPIACGL09) and also not in the preliminary documents in the accrual engine (DDIC structure ACEPS_BAPI_PRELINEITEM).

CS_BAPI_PREDOC-LINEITEMS contains field ALLOC_NMBR (‘Assignment Number’). as this number should in principle be unique for each accrual item. but then no summarization would be possible during transfer of Accrual Engine Documents to Accounting.Assignment Number: How it can be entered  The Assignment Number is not entered in postings made by the Accrual Engine. the Accrual Engine does not enter the assignment number.

then it is ok to use the accrual object number as assignment number.Example: How to fill the assgmt number in postings  The assignment number can be filled in the BAdI ACEPS_BAPIPREDOC_MOD by the customer. only the document number of the invoice (which is part of the accrual object number) should be used as assignment number. then the accrual object number can in general not be used as assignment number.  The following slides are intended to help the customer to define an implementation for the BAdI with a source code that filles the assignment number reasonably in case of the application ‚Manual Accruals‘:  It would be natural to use the accrual object number as assignment number.  © SAP AG 2002.e. An example would be the accrual object numbers that are used by the automatic data feed of invoices (ACACDATATRANS transaction). not as an external number range) in the customizing (ACAC_NUMOBJ transaction).
