1806251 - When Delimiting an Org Unit from a Hierarchy that Org Unit is Detached from the Org Strcuture

Symptom

When you try to delimit an Org Unit, that Org Unit is detached from the hierarchy and showing as a separate Org Unit.

Further, while Checking the Consistency or while Activating the Org Unit, system may throw below error messages:

DD.MM.YYYY to DD.MM.YYYY; Profit Center XYZ () must be below a Segment. It is also possible to flag both definitions on the same org unit.

DD.MM.YYYY to DD.MM.YYYY; Cost Center XYZ () must be below a Company. It is also possible to flag both definitions on the same org unit

DD.MM.YYYY to DD.MM.YYYY; Cost Center XYZ () must be below a Business Residence. It is also possible to flag both definitions on the same org unit

Cause

There are different actions which may lead to the above issue, they are

Case 1:

If you try to delimit the Org Unit XYZ with Valid To date as DD.MM.YYYY, then the system by default takes the same Valid To date for the attribute Parent Organizational Units. If you manually change the Valid To date of attribute Parent Organizational Units to a date lesser that the actual date. Then the Org Unit XYZ will removed from the parent Org unit and will be shown separately.

Case 2:

If you change the Valid To date of the attribute Parent Organizational Units to a past date (with reference to the Org Unit valid To date), Then the Org Unit XYZ will removed from the parent Org unit and will be shown separately.

Case 3:

The org unit XYZ is marked as Profit Center from DD.MM.YYYY which is not allowed because there is an Org unit below this which is a Segment.

Resolution

The basic principle is that the Valid To date of the attribute Parent Organizational Units must be equal to the Valid To date of the Org Unit.

Hence, you need to maintain the Valid To date of the attribute Parent Organizational Units as same as the Org Unit.

  1. Go to Organizational Management work center.
  2. Select Edit Org Structures under Common Tasks.
  3. Set the Effective From date as required.
  4. Highlight the Org Unit XYZ and go to Timelines tab.
  5. Scroll down to the last for the attribute Parent Organizational Units and change the Valid To date as same as Org Unit date.

In principle, a Profit center should be always below the Segment. You can either mark the Org Unit XYZ as Segment from DD.MM.YYYY or uncheck the Profit Center attribute of Org Unit XYZ from DD.MM.YYYY.
