FAQ: Default Cost Information for CATS

Reference: OSS Note 333884

Please contribute:

Symptom
In Time Sheet, fields SKOSTL (Sender cost center) and LSTAR (Activity type) may be filled automatically.For this, there are the following possibilities:

a) Default value from 'Organizational Assignment' (infotype 0001)
b) Default value from 'Time Sheet Defaults' (infotype 0315)
c) Default value from the work center or activity (operation)
d) Copied value from the previous period or the worklist
e) Default value in accordance with SAP enhancement CATS0002

Furthermore, there are situations in which no default values are used.

This note explains which default value is used in which situation.

Additional key words
SAPLCATS, RCATSTPS, cat2, cat5

Solution
When are default values used from the employee master record?
The default values are only used for new CATS records, not for changing, not for copying. If you also want to use the default values changing, not for copying. If you also want to use the default values from the employee master record when changing and copying from the work list, you can use SAP enhancement CATS0002.

The system only uses default values, if you enter a number of hours and choose 'Return'.

The cost center from infotype 0001 ('Organizational Assignment') isproposed, if in Customizing of the data entry profile, you selected the 'Master cost center' field in the 'Default values' area.

The system proposes the cost center and the activity type from infotype 0315 ('Time Sheet Defaults'), if in Customizing of the data entry profile you selected the 'Cost center' field (or the 'Activity type' field).

If you have chosen both fields, the cost center from infotype 0315 has priority, if you have defined it for the corresponding period.

In addition, as of Release 4.5A:
The system does not use the default values, if in Customizing of the data entry profile you selected the 'Assignment of personnel costs to receiver object' cost accounting variant.

The system only uses the default values, if you enter a receiver (for example, an order or a cost center) together with a number of hours and choose 'Return'.

A receiver has only been necessary following a change introduced in Release 4.5. The default values for the sender cost center or activity type (and especially the possible resulting the error messages) are undesired, if you only enter one attendance type/absence type (for example, vacation).

With which priority, are the default values used?
Release 3.1I - 4.0B
1. Default values from work center or activity (operation)
2. Default values from infotype 0315
3. Default value from infotype 0001

If a confirmation is entered, then no other sender cost center can be used, except the one in the work center of the activity.This default value also cannot be overridden by SAP enhancement CATS0002. The only possible Workaround is described in Note 109050.

As of Release 4.5A
1. Default values from infotype 0315
2. Default value from infotype 0001
3. Default values from work center or activity (operation)
