3317047 - Sender Cost Center / Activity Type not returning value list in "Manage Direct Activity Allocation" app


When trying to return the value list for Sender Cost Center / Sender Activity Type in app "Manage Direct Activity Allocation" app, it shows the message "No matching items found".

"Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental."



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Enter "Manage Direct Activity Allocation" app;
  2. Go to Create;
  3. Under Allocation Tab, try to display the value list for Sender Cost Center or Sender Activity Type.


The default value help for Sender Cost Center and Sender Activity Type is done with search template 'Cost Center Activity Type Value Help'. This one displays only combinations of Cost Center and Activity Type for which you have existing Cost Rate defined in the system. You can check this in app "Display Cost Rates", and if in there all Cost Rates have empty Cost Center, this value help won't return any data.


For such cases, you can use for both fields second value help, that which is just returning Cost Centers or Activity Types according to master data:
