  2. Highlight the line of the respective run DEF (DEF means the Run ID) and press View to open the Log result.
  3. Navigate to the Postings tab.

No journal entries created by the run.


You are running the WIP Clearing for period 'A' but the production confirmation GHI (GHI is the Production Confirmation ID), which belongs to your production lot ABC (ABC is the Production Lot ID) is completed only in period 'B' (Production End Date of it is a date in period B). You can also verify it by running the Production Lots - Line Items report. Here you observe that for the production lot in question postings were showing in period 'B' only and not in 'A'.

A means an accounting period.

B means an accounting period


Each production confirmation sends a message from logistics to financials and results in a posting to Work in Process with reference to the production lot. The confirmation mainly contains information about the actual quantities consumed. When financials has been informed of the relevant data, the system derives an account determination group for the production lot. This account determination group is then used in account determination for work in process and the work-in-process account.

Execute the WIP Clearing Run for the period in which the production confirmation is done which belongs to your production lot.
