Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Cost and Revenue work center and Revenue Recognition view.
  2. Open the run log and go to Messages, you can see such information.
  3. Go to Cost and revenue work center and Sales Document Items view.
  4. Find item ABC-XX and select it.
  5. Navigate to the Accounting Data sub tab.
  6. TheRevenue fully recognized indicator is not set. 


In general, this information message appears when executing a revenue recognition run for a sales order which contains items that are already completed for revenue recognition. You can verify this in the Sales Document Items view where you will notice that the Revenue fully recognized indicator is set for the item.

However, in case the Revenue Accounting Contract functionality is activated for the set of books a situation can occur where the revenue recognition run notes this information, even though the Revenue Fully Recognized indicator is not set for the item.

This happens when the sales order item is connected to a revenue accounting contract which is associated with further sales document items that are not yet completed.

In this case, the run identifies the item as completed and therefore does not expect it to be further processed, but it will block the revenue fully recognized indictor from being set until all sales document items connected to the run are completed.

Say, there are SO item 1-10 and 2-10 in Revenue Recognition. And the message occurs for 1-10.

If the message appears for SO item 1-10 then this item’s status is completed and a final delivery and invoice date is maintained (sales doc items view in cost and revenue, Dates tab).

When the RAC functionality is active then the revrec no longer works on SO level but on RAC level.

If item 2-10 belongs to the same RAC but is not finished then the info message will appear for SO item 1-10. Its fully recognized indicator will not get set until also 2-10 is completed.

So with the RAC functionality all sales doc items associated with the RAC must be completed. The revenue fully recognized will then be set for all these items.

If an item of a RAC is completed but others are not yet completed, then the message appears. The completed item is excluded from being processed. However, the fully recognized indicator can only be set once all items of the same RAC are completed.


Please monitor if all sales order items of the same RAC are recognized in separate revenue recognitionss
