COSTING: New Validations Added to Cost Distribution Infotype 27 - 10/30/08

Additional validations for entering cost distribution into Infotype 27 (IT27) went into effect Wednesday, Oct. 29.

The added validations will:
-- not allow greater than 12 lines of cost distribution to be entered for a single period.
-- require that the total cost distribution equals 100 percent.
-- not allow a cost center be entered with a real internal order
-- verify grant validity. If the grant is not valid for at least one day during the period, a hard-stop error will appear.
