Purpose

You can request an adjustment posting from the Intranet. You do not have to know the name of the processor, since the system automatically determines it. The request is transferred to the SAP system and can be processed there with the functions of the message processing.

You can call up the request form

        From the employee Workplace launchpad

        From line item reports in Controlling (CO)

        From line items for vendor/customer and G/L accounts

        From the general document display in Controlling (CO)

        From the general document display in Financial Accounting (FI)

You can call up the reports and the document display from the workplace as well as in the SAP system.

Example

In the cost center line item report, you notice that an amount was incorrectly entered. However, you do not know the name of the processor. From the line item report, you access the request form for an adjustment posting by choosing Extras Correction request.

       2.      You request an adjustment posting via the form in the Intranet (see Processing Request Form)

When you send the request, the information is transferred to the SAP system. The system determines the responsible processor based on entries made in Customizing (see Define Own Scenarios For Requesting an Adjustment Posting).

       3.      The processor receives the request for an adjustment posting in their worklist or workflow inbox (see Task Processing).

       4.      The following options are available to the processor:

...

                            a.      They may require additional information, should the request be incomplete. They attach a note to the requests and enter the person making the request as the processor.

                            b.      The processor rejects the request for an adjustment posting.

                            c.      They approve the request and makes the necessary adjustments in the SAP system.

                            d.      They forward the request.

In the second decision level, the options a to d are available again.

In the last three cases, the processor can enter a text to explain the reason for his/her decision.
