The interest calculation has been completely overhauled for
Release 4.0A. The following new functions are available:
The system generates a source
document for each interest postings; you can evaluate the document
in the information system.
Cancel interest runs
You can cancel interest runs. If you
want to cancel interest postings made some time ago, you cancel
postings in the reverse order to that in which they were made; that
is, you cancel the most recent interest run first.
Interest calculation based on line items or totals records
To improve system performance in
interest runs, you can calculated interest based on totals records.
The period values for the interest run are dated the middle of a
period. To make the settings which determined whether the interest
run is based on line items or totals records, go to the Project
System Implementation Guide and work the step
Control hierarchy processing automatically or manually.
You can use hierarchy processing in
the interest calculation to stipulate:
Which account assignment objects are included in the interest
In which objects interest amounts are posted
Hierarchy processing for the interest calculation is per the
setting in the interest profile. You can stipulate:
No interest calculation
You make the relevant settings in the
Project System Implementation Guide. Access the detail screen in
Interest Relevance of Value Categories
If you have maintained more than one
interest indicator for the interest profile, you stipulate the
interest relevance of value categories for an interest
profile/interest indicator combination.
You can use these settings to, for
example, stipulate separate control of cost and payments without
resort to customer enhancement KPSHZIN2 (Check line items).
In this step, you define the interest
relevanc of value categories for a combination of an interest
profile and an interest indicator.
Changes to the interface
The initial screen for the interest calculation has been
reworked. You define the interest relevant timeframe using periods
and fiscal years (instead of the "to" date used previously.
However, you can define a precise "to"
date using the Extras
From the interest run hierarchy lists you can access the error
log at any time. Choose Messages.
If you are changing to Release 4.0A from an earlier release,
there is no need to change any of your settings.
The system contains the following standard settings:
The Derive automaticallyindicator is
set for the processing logic in the interest profile. Interest
calculation hierarchy processing is then the same as in earlier
Value category interest relevant is defined using the interest
profile only, as in earlier release. If you have maintained more
than one interest indicator for the interest profile and use
customer enhancement KPSHZIN2 (Check line items) to control
interest relevance, we recommend that you use the new functions for
stipulating interest relevance.
Customer enhancement KPSHZIN3 (Interest result) is no longer
