1751513 - Error Running Revenue Recognition for a Sales Order Linked to a Project PoC

Symptom

When running a revenue recognition, you received this error: Document item X/Y-ZZ: Derivation of planned costs not possible

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Cost and Revenue work center.
  2. Go to Periodic Tasks view.
  3. Select Revenue Recognition subview.
  4. Click on the Revenue Recognition ID you need.
  5. Go to tab Messages.
  6. You can see the error Document item X/Y-ZZ: Derivation of planned costs not possible.
  7. Go to tab Processed with Errors, search the sales X/Y.
  8. Click on the ID X/Y.
  9. Press button View All of the Sales ID number.
  10. Go to tab Items.
  11. The item is linked to a Project

Cause

You received this error because you did not maintain in the Sales Order on tab Pricing and Invoicing the planned costs of the corresponding project.

Now you have already created a customer invoice and released it, the Pricing and Invoicing is grayest and you cannot change the sales anymore.

Resolution

Since the sales process is not able to update the sales order with the planned costs the revenue recognition run is not able to calculate PoC
The other option is to maintain the PoC (percentage of completion) manually on the sales Order.

  1. Go to Cost and Revenue work center.
  2. Go to Sales Document Items view.
  3. Search for your sales order reference and click on the ID
  4. Use the button Edit Manual Revenue Recognition Data and option Edit Percentage of Completion to maintain PoC for the sales order items.

After these steps run revenue recognition again.
