Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center.
  2. Select Implementation Projects view.
  3. Highlight the Implementation Project or Change Project.

Cause

The cause for the issue could be that you have added new countries in your scoping after Go-Live.

Resolution

Adding new countries to scope means that the system loads additional content out of our pre-delivered repository content into your project.

In this special case, some account determination groups to post the costs and revenues in expense and reimbursement management for the mentioned countries have been loaded. However, at the same time someone might have deleted the account determination groups ABC and XYZ. These Account determination Groups are needed now for the content of the newly scoped countries and have been deleted in fine tuning.

The system allows you to either delete / replace the usages of the previously deleted account determination groups (Activities affected by the inconsistency) or to restore the missing account determination groups (Activities causing the inconsistency).

The details steps to fix the issue is as follows,

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center.
  2. Select Implementation Projects view.
  3. You can navigate from the error screen that shows the inconsistencies to the affected fine-tuning activities by selecting error message link.
  4. Highlight the first problem shown in table Inconsistencies in Fine tuning. Now you can find two tables, Activities affected by Inconsistency and Activities Causing Inconsistency.
  5. The first allows you to change the account determination group that shall be used and the second allows you to restore the account determination group you had deleted before or to activate it again.

In case you want to use an existing account determination group you have created already, use the links in column screen of table Activities affected by Inconsistency:

  1. The system shows all fine tuning activities that refer to the content that is not valid any longer. Check in column Relevant Entry which entry is causing the problem.
  2. This is a quite technical concatenated key, nevertheless it will help you to find the receipt type for which the account determination group needs to be changed.
  3. For the given example, select the Edit Receipt Types link (the first row of first table) and a new screen opens up.
  4. Based on the Relevant Entry, highlight the respective Receipt Type row.
  5. Navigate on the Detailed screen area to Tab Account determination and choose between the following options:
  6. Select the account determination group you would like to use instead of ABC/XYZ. You can resolve the problem for the other entries (if exists) shown on the first screen.
  7. Delete the whole receipt type if you don't want your employees to use it (this must be done in the upper table Available Receipt types.

In case no suitable account determination group exists, but you want to keep the receipt type, close the view and use the links in the second table (Activities Causing Inconsistency).

  1. Go back tot he error screen.
  2. Highlight the first row (Edit Account Determination Groups) of second table (Activities Causing Inconsistency).
  3. Here, the system shows you all views where account determination groups can be set up. For now, you will need only activity Edit Account Determination groups to activate / restore the needed entries.
  4. Open the link and navigate to account determination groups for costs -> Groups for General expenses.
  5. You can use the button Restore defaults to restore the groups that are currently used but were deleted.
  6. A new pop-up opens up.
  7. Mark the groups you want to restore and select Restore button.

Afterwards, go back to the screen with the error messages and the links, use the link in column Activity of table Activities affected by the inconsistency, choose Chart of accounts … and set up the account determination for the groups you had restored.

For each account determination group mentioned you either have to remove all usages out of the newly loaded pre-delivered content, or you have to restore them and set up the account determination.

Note: We recommend to delete pre-delivered content in fine tuning only in exceptional cases. At least it is not recommendable to delete the pre-delivered code and set up another code in fine tuning that has nearly the same purpose.

After you think you are done with the necessary changes, you can use the Refresh-Button of the Inconsistencies in Fine-Tuning table. If you have resolved everything, the first table will not show any entry any more. Deploy changes then will trigger the deployment of your scoping and fine tuning changes.
