Configuration Consistency Checks for Central Budgeting for Internal Orders

The new configuration consistency check is verifying whether the internal order types which have been entered in Customizing for Central Budgeting for Internal Orders are set up to allow Central Budgeting. Mapped internal order types need to be compatible with one another and have a budget profile with active availability control assigned. If the configuration set-up of internal order types or budget profiles do not support the Central Budgeting for Internal Orders scenario, a message is displayed which provides you information of the configuration changes you need to perform to make the configuration settings in the source system and the Central Finance system consistent.

Deletion Program for Budget-Related Data in a Source System

With Central Budgeting active, the governance of budget is shifted from the source system to the Central Finance system. We usually recommend that when you start afresh with Central Budgeting, you create internal order types and internal orders which you use exclusively for Central Budgeting for Internal Orders. But, if, in rare cases, you have activated Central Budgeting for Internal Orders for internal order types which have already been in use and budget has been already posted to those internal orders, you can run the Central Budgeting: Delete Budget for Internal Orders in Source System program (FIN_CFIN_CB_DELETION transaction) which allows you to delete the budget-related data from the data base tables in source systems. Please be aware that after running this program in update mode, you will no longer be able to restore the data! Details are explained in the program documentation. After calling up the FIN_CFIN_CB_DELETION transaction, just choose the icon to display the program documentation, or if you are using Web GUI, access the documentation with Start of the navigation pathMore Next navigation step Program DocumentationEnd of the navigation path.
