Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open the app 'Run Settlement - Actual'.
  2. Select a WBS element/ Project, click on the button 'Test Run'/ 'Run'.
  3. Enter the Settlement Period, Fiscal Year and select the processing method and click on 'Test Run/ Run'.
  4. Error Obtained : 'The sender is only relevant for ledger settlement'.


The Ledger field is blank/ not entered.


For wbs elements/ projects created before 2105, we can keep the Ledger blank and it would settle the same values to all ledgers but for new projects/WBS elements created after 2105 release, settlement must be executed by each Ledger independently. Settlements are now run by Ledger.
