3078045 - Allocation doesn't consider value for cost center which is statistical

Symptom

You are trying to do cost center allocation.
With report Cost Centers - Actuals, you could find for a cost center, there is value with "Cost Center is statistical".
After executing allocation, you found the statistical value is not changed at all.

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  • Execute cost center allocation with App Run Allocations.
  • Check statistical value in cost center with App Cost Centers - Actuals.

Cause

Statistical values are not considered in allocation.
You can release the Journal Entry field in App Cost Centers - Actuals.
Then please check the statistical journal entry with App Display Journal Entry.
Check the item detail and you should find Cost Center is not the only account assignment.
For example, you may find the profitability segment is also assigned.

If multiple account assignments are assigned, cost center is the statistical one.
So you can imagine, if allocation consider the statistical value, the value will be double posted.

Resolution

This is standard design.
