More detailed:  The accrual method is called during the periodic accrual posting run.   The accrual method has to populate correctly the CT_PERIOD_VALUE table in all of these cases! All three cases should be tested thoroughly! © SAP AG 2002. In this case. Title of Presentation.e. the CT_PERIOD_VALUE table contains several entries: One entry for each period. The CT_PERIOD_VALUE table can contain different entries. CT_PERIOD_VALUE usually contains one entry in which DATE_FOM <= DATE_TO. In this entry DATE_FROM = DATE_TO = key date of the accrual run!  The accrual method is called from the display transaction for accrual objects (e.g. DATE_FROM <= DATE_TO in each entry. the ACACTREE02 transaction). the accrual method is called for the key date that was entered on the entry screen: The CT_PERIOD_VALUE table contains exactly one single entry. i. In this case. In this case.  The accrual method is called during the data extraction to BW (data warehouse).

Customizing: Account Determination .

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). These documents consist of only one line item without GL accounts and without CO assignments like cost center etc. the Accrual Engine account determination is executed to get the following information:  Start account account type  Target  Document © SAP AG 2002. Speaker Name 55 .Customizing: Account Determination  When posting Accruals.  At this point in time. Accrual Engine documents are created in the Accrual Engine. Title of Presentation.

which dimensions determine the accounts and document type! E.g. Title of Presentation.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. Speaker Name 56 . 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.

costs or revenues). it is clear that the accounts usually depend on the accrual type. © SAP AG 2002.g. P: Periodic accrual posting The periodic posting is done by the periodic accrual run. The opening posting usually posts the total value which is to be accrued to an accrual account. when the accrual (sub)object is created. This posting is done.Customizing: Example for Account Determination  The accounts which are used in an accrual posting depend mainly on the following criteria:  Process in the accrual engine I: Opening posting (This posting is optional. It usually posts from the accrual account to a P&L account. F: Final posting (This posting is optional. Speaker Name 57 . It is only executed if a) an opening posting was done and b) the accrual (sub)object is terminated before it has reached the end of ist life time. depending on the setting of the accrual type).  As a consequence. Title of Presentation. the account determination will usually depend on these two criterias (see next slide).  Accrual type Since the accrual type determines the kind of accruals (e. depending on the setting of the accrual type).

 In a second step of the account derivation. all companies.  Both of these account determinations use the same derivation tool!  Only difference: The extended account determination offers more features than the simple account determination. Speaker Name 60 .  Do not derive the accounts directly. the same logic is to be used to derive the accrual accounts. there exists also a socalled ‘extended account determination’. derive the account from account symbol and chart of accounts!  This two-step logic can be done in the extended account determination. © SAP AG 2002.Customizing: Extended Account Determination  In addition to the ordinary account determination. but the chart of account is different in each company code. but derive only account symbols. Title of Presentation.  Basis idea of the extended account determination is explained in the following example:  Accruals  In have to be done in a lot of company codes.  Problem:  Solution: The accounts depend on the chart of accounts.

Debit and Credit Indicators .

Speaker Name 62 .Debit and Credit Indicators in Accrual Postings  Postings which are done by the Accrual Engine create two kind of documents:  Accrual Engine documents Accrual Engine documents are stored in the Accrual Engine and each document consists of one line item only: This line item contains the information which value was accrued for which accrual object in which period. Documents The Accrual Engine document is automatically transferred to Accounting.100 EUR to start account © SAP AG 2002. Title of Presentation. The account determination yields the necessary two accounts: Start and target account: Accounting document 100 EUR to target account  Accounting Accrual Engine document: 100 EUR . During this transfer from each Accrual Engine document two line items are created in the Accounting document.

Title of Presentation. Accounting document 100 EUR to target account Accrual Engine document: 100 EUR .Debit and Credit Indicators in Accrual Postings  The debit and credit indicators are determined from the sign of the Accounting line item:  If  If the value is > 0.

The report would work in the following way:  Select contract-like data which is to be accrued.Manual Accruals: Interface for Creating Accrual Objects  In the application component ‘Manual Accruals’. accrual objects are created manually.  Save the transformed data as accrual objects in the Accrual Engine.  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. but SAP also delivers an interface for creating accrual objects.  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 data can be selected from any source!  Transform the selected data into the format that is needed by the interface.

Speaker Name 80 . Title of Presentation. This customizing can be found in the sample report in the menue: ‘Environment -> Settings -> Selection Methods for Data Transfer’ © SAP AG 2002.Manual Accruals: Automatic Datafeed (4)  Selection Methods in the sample report enable the customer to use the sample report to select data from any source and transform the selected data into the format that is required by the Accrual Engine  The selection methods can be defined in the customizing.

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

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. © SAP AG 2002.  In the source code. Speaker Name 82 .  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.  SAP deliveres sample selection methods for the transfer of vendor invoices 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).  A DDIC-Structure which contains the fields which are to be displayed by the sample report as results list. Title of Presentation.

From this it is clear.g. 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.g.  Some includes for the program logic (e. Speaker Name 83 . Title of Presentation.  Of course.Manual Accruals: Automatic Datafeed (7)  A problem for the selection methods are the select-options: The sample report must ‘tell’ the function module (e. include ACAC_DATA_TRNSF_SELOPT_EXAMPLE. includes ACAC_GENERIC_DATA_TRANSF_M10 and ACAC_GENERIC_DATA_TRANSF_F10). ACAC_DATA_TRANSFER_EXAMPLE_1) which data to select. the required select-options and parameters of the data transfer report depend on the source from which the data are selected.  But since all the program logic of the data transfer program is identical for all data sources. © SAP AG 2002. 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.

Aferwards. First. the includes can be replaced by customerdefined includes.

Title of Presentation. the select options are contained in an internal table (parameter IT_GENERIC_SELOPT). © SAP AG 2002. Speaker Name 85 .  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’. This table is then passed to the function module of the selection method.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.  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.

It is usually posted from the accrual account to a P&L account.  Periodic accrual postings These postings post a certain value which is calculated by the accrual method. then the remaining value is posted to a certain account. This value is usually a part of full value (which is to be accrued).  Each posting creates an accrual engine document and this document is transferred automatically to accounting. when the accrual object is created. These postings are executed by the periodic accrual run which is usually started at the end of each period. several or all of the following type of postings:  Opening postings The full amount which is to be accrued is posted.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.
