Hello to the community


I am trying to transfer to cost accounting the project postings but get the error “activity sequence number must have a value”. Do you by any chance know how i could get a default activity sequence number on my posting lines when the code part “project” depends on posting control and not preposting?

 

The PRJT2 and PRJT6 are setup to have project according to employee category, but no sequence number is mapped on posting line, and the error comes from the fact that it does not have a value; i tried to exclude from project follow up the 2 accounts used in PRJT2/6 but then the project no longer comes from the posting control defined but is the same as preposting.

 

If you have an idea on this matter, would be happy to discuss it with you


Thanks​​​​​​​

When project time is booked, this is typically done at project activity level which is the activity used in PRJT2 and PRJT6 posting controls (project time bookings). It is not possible to save a project time transaction without an activity in core functionality, as far as I’m aware. 

Could it be that the activities used in the Project Transactions for the time transactions in question are not in released status or the dates of the activities don’t include the posting date?

Hello,
Project and activity on time reported transaction are used for PRJT1 posting. PRJT2 is counter posting, and usually it should not be posted to an activity, because it is credit entry - having (same) project here would mean that project costs would be charged with both debit and credit entry = effectively zero. 

In PRJT2 we are usually using balance sheet account, excluded from project follow-up.

You are right! I totally mixed up PRJT1 and PRJT2. Thanks for clarifying!
