2615386 - Actual Cost Rollup Failed With Error Message: 'Cost center has no cost; Valuation with cost estimate of resource failed'

Symptom

You have run an Actual Cost Rollup and receive some error messages.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Inventory Valuation work center.
  2. Go to the Periodic Tasks view -> Actual Cost Rollup.
  3. Find XXX.
  4. Select Run ID XXX.
  5. Go to the Execution Details view.
  6. Find Execution ID YYY.
  7. Go to the Messages view.

You will find the error messages below:

  • 'Cost center AAA (Manufacturing) has no cost.'
  • 'Valuation with cost estimate of resource XYZ failed.'
  • 'Cost center AAA (Manufacturing) has no cost.'
  • 'Valuation with cost estimate of production lot ZZZ failed.'

XXX - Run ID.

YYY - Execution ID.

AAA - Cost Center.

ZZZ - Production Lot.

Cause

For the system to recognize the Costs, they need to be successfully posted.

To verify this, you can check the following report:

  1. Go to the Cost and Revenue work center.
  2. Go to the Reports view -> List.
  3. Show All Reports.
  4. Select Cost Centers - Line Items.
  5. Search using the requested information.

No report data available to display.

Hence there aren't costs to the Cost Center to which resource belongs, the run won't be executed successfully.

Resolution

The Cost Center can receive posts through a Journal Entry Voucher. For example, you can create a Journal Entry Voucher for the company (something like salary posting) with a debit to the Cost Center and an offset line which will have the credit.

An example of such post would be:

  1. Go to the General Ledger work center.
  2. Go to the Journal Entries view -> Journal Entry Vouchers.
  3. Click New -> Journal Entry Voucher.
  4. Fill the fields with the information showed on the Cost Center where the error is happening.
  5. Add two rows:
       a. You have to set a debit to the Cost Center (choose the GL Account and give production Cost Center in the Cost Center Field).
       b. You have to set a credit to the Cost Center (same configuration of the debit line).
  6. Click Post.

After you have successfully posted the cost to the relevant Cost Center the error will not occur.
