Overhead Orders

Definition

Indicator that, together with the CO interface , controls the specific defaults for internal order management.

Use

The following values are valid:

" " - Inactive

Internal order management is inactive. Order validation does not take place. Orders cannot be used as account assignment objects for internal CO postings. For postings in FI, you can assign orders only after deactivating the corresponding warning message. The R/3 System then treats these as real postings but does not update them. Any cost center then posted accepts them as statistical postings only.

1 - Active

Internal order management is active on a limited basis. Orders are validated against the order master. They can be used as account assignment objects. In the corresponding posting transactions, the CO files are updated.

2 - Active for validations

Internal order management is inactive. Orders are validated against the order master. They can be used as account assignment objects, but are not updated in the corresponding posting transactions. Later implementation of internal order management makes follow-up posting of cost-accounting-relevant business transactions onto orders in the corresponding CO files possible.

3 - Active for existence validation

Controls as indicator 2, except that the orders are checked only for proof of existence, and not whether they are allowable for the relevant posting transaction.
