Internal Orders

1.0 Internal Orders


Internal orders can be used to create a subset of costs and/or revenues within a cost
center or WBS element. The subsets can be reported upon separately from the main
cost center or WBS element. They can be used to track faculty startup costs, individual
staff expenditures, discrete projects within a larger overall project or anything that you
need to track separately but do not want to have as a separate cost center or WBS
element.

In IRIS the Internal Order (IO) is completely within the discretion of the individual fund
centers or departments. Departments can create them as needed.

Each major organizational unit is assigned a specific order type and number range for
the orders. Security for the orders is based on major organizational unit as determined
by order type, which means that it is based at the major organizational unit level. All
users within the organizational unit can see (and potentially post against) all Internal
Orders within the same organizational unit.

With the exception of payroll and requisitions purchasing assets, all expenditure and
revenue document entry screens will allow for the entry of an internal order number at
the same time you are creating the document for the cost center or WBS element so
that duplicate entry will not be needed.

For payroll transactions and the purchase of assets it will be necessary to use a
separate transaction to cause those expenses to be distributed to an IO.

Although budgeting is not possible in Internal Orders, a function called Planning is


available. You can plan over multiple years for an overall amount.

It is possible to create Internal Order groups and hierarchies that allow editing and
reporting for multiple IOs that you wish to see together.

Internal orders exist only in the Controlling/Project Systems module within IRIS. This
means that you will not see internal orders on any reports in either the Financial or the
Funds Management module.

Internal Orders

2.0 Creating, Changing and Displaying Internal Orders


All of the transactions for creating, changing and displaying Internal Orders can be
found following the menu path Accounting >> Controlling >> Internal Orders >>
Master data >>Order.

2.1 Create Internal Order


Following the menu path above, under Order, the transaction KO01 – Create is
used to create internal orders.

The initial screen is shown below.

The security for Internal Orders is based on the Major Organizational Unit. Each Unit
has been assigned a separate order type. You can search for it by clicking on the
matchcode box in the Order type field. You should choose the order type for your
Major Organizational Unit. For example, everyone at the Martin campus would
choose MART as the Internal Order type. The list is shown below.

5/12/06 4
Internal Orders

Choose the type for your major organizational unit by double clicking on the correct
line. It will be transferred to the Order type field.

The Order field in the Reference portion of the screen may be used if there is an
existing order that is similar to the one you wish to create. If you enter an order
number here, the information for that order will be transferred to the creation screens
to be used or changed as you please. In the screens shown below, this field was left
blank so that all fields needed to be entered.

After entering the Order type, and the Order if desired, you can press Enter or click
on either the Enter icon, , or the Master data button, . Any of these
actions will take you to the Master data screen as shown below.

(In the training and testing clients, you may see a screen asking for the Controlling
area. If this happens, type UT as the controlling area. This should not happen in the
production client.)

5/12/06 5
Internal Orders

This screen requires only two fields of data, the Short text and the Business area.
The remaining items are informational only and have no impact upon how the order
is used.

Short text – up to 40 characters of free form text to describe the purpose of the
order. If a more detailed description is needed you may enter it using the Create
long text icon, . You cannot use the long text until you also enter the
required Business area.

Business area – The cost centers or WBS elements used with the Internal Order
must have the same business area as the IO. In other words, an IO with a
business area of 1107 (Unrestricted E & G for Memphis) could not be used with a
WBS element with a business area of 2107 (Restricted for Memphis).

To find the business area for a fund, use transaction FM5S. When the basic
information is displayed, click on the Classification button, business area is found

5/12/06 6
Internal Orders

on that screen. But generally, if the cost centers to be used with the IO begin
with an E or I, the business are will begin with 11 (unrestricted) or 13 (auxiliary)
and end with the 2nd and 3rd digits of the cost center. If a WBS element is to be
used, business area begins with 21 and ends with the 2nd and 3rd digits of the
WBS element:
Fields 1 & 2 Fields 3 & 4
Cost center 11 or 13 (auxiliary) The 2 and 3rd fields of cost center or
nd

WBS element 21 WBS element (E05xxxx would be 05)

External order number – you may wish to enter your department’s primary cost
center here. It is possible to obtain a list for all internal orders with the same
external order number. By entering the department’s primary cost center for all of
your internal orders, you will be able to obtain a list of all of the orders for your
department. This field is for informational purposes only. It will not limit the use of
the order to only the cost center or WBS element entered.

NOTE: you would only enter either a WBS element or a cost center, not both.

The items below are optional information, but it is STRONGLY recommended that
you complete at least the information for the department, person and phone number
so that if there is a problem with an order, the proper department can be located.

Person responsible – you may wish to note who is responsible for this Internal
Order. This could be the departmental bookkeeper or the staff member for whom
the order was created. The choice is yours (20 character field).

Telephone – the telephone number for the person responsible if you wish to record it
(20 character field).

Estimated costs – if you know what the total expected costs are to be, you may enter
it here (11 place numerical field formatted like 123,456,789.01).

Department – you may enter the name of the department using this IO (15 character
field).

Start of work – you may enter a date for when this order will start. Date can be
entered in the format MM/DD/YY or YYYY (YY will be converted to YYYY by the
system so that all four digits of the year will be stored).

Date work ends – you may enter a date for when this order will end. Date can be
entered in the format MM/DD/YY or YYYY (YY will be converted to YYYY by the
system so that all four digits of the year will be stored).

5/12/06 7
Internal Orders

The cost and date fields are informational only and do not restrict the actual use of
the order.

The Control data tab should be ignored. It allows the types of transactions posted to
internal orders to be restricted according to various predefined lists. The default
is set to REL and should be left as that.

Click on the Save icon, , to save the information.

The screen will return to the initial screen and the message at the bottom of the
screen will give you the number for your order as shown below.

Be sure to record the number of the order for future reference! Unless fields
like department or external order no. are entered consistently, there isn’t a way to list
the orders in a department. The lowest level error free field is business area
(although orders can be listed by the username of the person that created it).

2.1 Change and Display Internal Orders


The transactions KO02 and KO03 are used to change and display existing internal
orders.

The screen below is for the change transaction, but the display transaction initial
screen is similar.

5/12/06 8
Internal Orders

Type the number of the order you wish to change or display in the Order field and
press Enter or click on either the Enter icon, , or the Master data
button, . The information for the order will be displayed.

The screens look exactly as they do for the create screen except for the ‘Services for
Object’ icon, which has the functions shown below. The icon will show on the
Change and Display screens but the work will only be saved on the Change screen.

5/12/06 9
Internal Orders

The only difference between the change and display screens is that you may not
change the information in the display transaction.

You are now ready to use Internal Orders. You can post transactions to them, plan
for them (a form of budgeting) and/or combine them into groups for ease in reposting
and editing.

3.0 Posting to Internal Orders


For most transactions you will post to the Internal Order at the same time you post to
the cost center or WBS element for a document. The two exceptions to this rule are the
posting of payroll charges and the posting of financial transactions involving an asset.

3.1 Internal Orders on a Requisition (ME51N)


For non-asset requisitions there is an additional field on the Account Assignment
screen titled Order as shown in the example below.

Internal order number goes in the Order


column on the Acct Assignment screen

5/12/06 10
Internal Orders

Type the order number(s) in that field. When you save the requisition it will be saved
for the Internal Order(s) and the cost center(s) and/or WBS element(s) involved.

The IO number will follow the requisition through the purchase order to the invoice
against the purchase order. It will not follow to the check, but remember in IRIS it is
the invoice that is expensed to your cost center or WBS element, not the check
(checks are written from a central fund).

For requisitions involving an asset you will need to use the manual reposting of cost
transaction discussed in section 5 of this document. In this case there is no
automatic transfer from requisition to PO to invoice. The reason for this is that IRIS
does not allow the direct posting of expenditures against cost elements used for
assets. The posting must be done via the asset.

3.2 Internal Orders on Non-PO Invoices (FB60), Internal Transfers


(FB50) and Cash Deposits (ZFB50ZK2)
For all of these transactions, the same procedure is used to enter the IO number.
The example used below is for an internal transfer in FB50, but the same variant is
available for non-PO invoices (FB60) and for cash deposits in FB50. Be sure to
have the tree structure on to view the screen variants available. Double click on the
UT Standard Variant with IO.

Tree On/Off button.

Variant to
show IO field.

The standard detail entry section of the screen will now show a field labeled Order to
the immediate right of the Cost Center field as shown below.

5/12/06 11
Internal Orders

Entry field for IO

Type the internal order number on any line that is to be charged to an IO. If the cost
of a single item is to be split between multiple IO’s, you may split the item into
multiple lines in the original transaction or you may enter a single line here and use
the manual reposting of costs/revenues described in section 5 to redistribute to
multiple internal orders.

When you have finished, park the document as you would any document without an
IO. The document will impact both the cost center/WBS element and the Internal
Order.

Internal Orders on Procurement Cards


If you are reconciling a procurement card, on the Fast Entry screen there will be a
column for Order as shown in the sample screen below.

If your fast entry screen does not display an Order column, you can set your screen
to use the screen template Z003 so it will appear. You can also set your default
screen display to Z003 so the Order column will automatically appear when you go
to the fast entry screen. The steps below demonstrate how to accomplish this.

3.3.1 Changing the Fast entry screen template

On the main menu bar, click on Settings > Screen template as shown below.

5/12/06 12
Internal Orders

In the window that will appear, double click on Z003 – Std ut-parkd w/internal
order as shown below.

1.0

Select Z003

Your screen layout will now include the internal order column.

3.3.2 Setting a Fast entry default template

If you want this screen layout to be your default so it will appear whenever you
select the fast entry option, leave the change screen and return to the SAP Easy
Access menu. Type FB00 in the command field as shown below and press Enter.

3.3 Internal Orders with Payroll and Assets

5/12/06 15
Internal Orders

IRIS does not allow the direct posting of financial information to salary or asset cost
elements, GL accounts or commitment items. In order to post these types of
information to an Internal Order you will need to use the manual reposting of cost
and revenue transactions described in section 5, Manual Reposting, later in this
manual. These transactions allow charges and revenues to be moved to and from
Internal Orders without impacting the cost center or WBS element balances.

4.0 Planning for Internal Orders


Internal orders do not have official budgets, but they can have plans that can function in
much the same way. An overall plan (just a total amount) is currently the only way to
plan on internal orders.

Only one of the reports for Internal Orders shows the values for the overall plans. The
other reports show the values for the detail plan. It is not necessary to enter an overall
plan in order to have a detailed plan.

4.1 Overall Plans


The overall plan transactions can be found under the menu path Accounting >>
Controlling >> Internal Orders >> Planning >> Overall values.

This is a good choice if you wish to track the total amount of expenditure/revenue
involved. It may also be useful if you wish to establish a multi-year plan and want to
have an overview of the time periods.

5/12/06 16
Internal Orders

4.1.1 Creating and Changing an Overall Plan

The same transaction, KO12, is used to both create and change an overall plan.
The initial screen is shown below.

You must enter either an order number or order group (not both). You must also
enter a plan version. Zero, 0, is the default version for the plan.

After you have entered the required information, either press Enter or click on the
Overall planning button, , to go to the entry screen. If you are
creating a plan the screen will not have any data in the fields. If you are changing
an existing plan there will already be data in the fields as shown in the screen
below.

5/12/06 17
Internal Orders

Overall – this is the entire amount to be planned.

Individual fiscal years – the fiscal years shown on the screen will change as time
passes. You may enter the total planned expenditures for each year. In the
example above, expenditures are planned for fiscal 2001, 2002 and 2003. The
sum of the entries for the years should not exceed the overall amount that is
entered.

Warning: The sum of the years is not checked against the overall amount when
you save the plan. To check for possible problems, click on the Check icon, .

When the overall plan is the way you want it to be, click on the Save icon.

4.1.2 Displaying the Overall Plan

Transaction KO13 functions in the same manner as the create/change


transaction described above, but allows only the display of the information.

5/12/06 18
Internal Orders

5.0 Redistributing Costs and Revenues to Internal


Orders.
Payroll charges and charges against assets (requisitions, purchase order and invoices
against purchase orders) cannot be posted to an Internal Order during the initial posting
of the documents. Therefore they must be manually reposted to the IO after they have
been posted to the cost center or WBS element.

In addition to these types of documents, there are internal transfers that are
automatically posted to your balances (motor pool changes, graphic arts, postage, etc)
that do not reference an IO but that you wish to have on an IO. (You may also add an
internal order to these types of transactions during the workflow review/approval
process. Please see section 10 for more details.)

In other cases you may find it necessary to transfer charges/revenues from one IO to
another.

When you repost costs or revenues, a new document is created. Therefore your line
item reports in Controlling will show both the original document and the reposted
document.

Please note, separate transactions must be used for costs and for revenues.

All of these tasks are done using the Manual Reposting transactions. These
transactions are found under the menu path Accounting >> Controlling >> Internal
Orders >> Actual Postings.

5/12/06 19
Internal Orders

5.1 Manual Reposting of Costs


These transactions are found under Accounting >> Controlling >> Internal
Orders >> Actual Postings >> Manual Reposting of Costs.

5.1.1 Enter the Reposting Document

The transaction to enter the reposting of costs is KB11N - Enter. The entry
screen is shown below.

The screen variant should be UT INTERNAL ORDER variant. If it is not, change


it using the matchcode box.

You may decide which type of entry screen to use. The screen defaults to the
recommended screen for data entry, which is List entry, but you may also choose
the individual entry screen if you wish. Click on the matchcode box in the field to
see the choices and select one as shown in the screen below.

You can now enter data. The list entry type screen is shown below.

5/12/06 20
Internal Orders

Doc. date – the date on the document you are reposting

Postg date - this date will control the fiscal year and period the reposting will be
posted to. It must be for an open period.

Period – this is the default posting period based on the current date, but it may
be changed to any other OPEN period. The period in this field must match the
period for the posting date entered.

Ref. Doc. - if there is a prior manual reposting document that you wish to use
as a template, you may enter that document number here. This is a useful
feature if you will regularly repost lengthy transactions.

- if you have entered a reference document, you can display the


document using this icon to verify that it is the correct reference.

- if you have entered a reference document, you should click this


icon to transfer the information from that document to the entry screen.

Doc. text - a description of the overall document. This is an optional field, but it
is strongly recommended that a useful description be entered.

The list entry columns:

CCtr (old) – the original cost center charged (if it was a cost center).

Order (old) – the original Internal Order charged. This may be left blank if the
original charge did not have an IO number.

5/12/06 21
Internal Orders

WBS element (old) – the original WBS element charged (if it was a WBS
element).

Cost element – the original cost element and the cost element for the
reposting MUST be the same. Transfers between cost elements require an
official internal transfer to be posted. Only expenditure cost elements may be
used for reposting costs.

Amount - the amount to be reposted

CCtr (new)- this must be the same as the CCtr (old). Transfers between cost
centers require an official internal transfer to be posted using the FB50
transaction, document type ZD.

Order (new) - the new Internal Order number to be charged. This may be left
blank if the recharge does not have an IO number.

WBS element (new)- this must be the same as the WBS element (old). Transfers
between WBS elements require an official internal transfer to be posted using
the FB50 transaction, document type ZD.

Text – you may enter a description for the line item. The description may
be up to 50 characters long.

The result of the reposting is to move money between or to an Internal Order


without impacting the balances for the cost center or WBS element or impacting
the university wide G/L account balances. A new document will be created within
the Controlling module to hold the reposting. Be sure to copy the new document
number on the original document if you are keeping that information for your
records.

At the bottom of the screen, in addition to the icons that allow for easy editing of
the entry screen, there are two buttons labeled Fill Column, ,
and Reset column, .

Complete the first line of the list entry portion of the screen. Choose a column by
clicking on the column heading. Then click on the Fill column button. The column
will be filled in with the value on the first line as shown in the example below for
the CCtr (old) column.

5/12/06 22
Internal Orders

The Reset column button will remove the filled information for all lines that have
not been completed.

To save your work and post to the corrected internal order(s), click on the
Save icon, . If there are no errors, the document number will be display at the
bottom of the screen. If there are errors, acknowledge and correct them before
saving the document.

5.1.2 Display the Reposting Document

To display a manual reposting document you may use the transaction KB13N.

The screen is shown below. Be sure UT INTERNAL ORDER is the screen


variant. If not, change the variant to that choice.

You must type the DocumentNo and press or click Enter to display the desired
document. The screen is identical to the screen discussed above in the Entering
the Reposting Document section.

5/12/06 23
Internal Orders

5.1.3 Reverse the Reposting

If you need to reverse a reposting document, it can be quickly and easily done
using the transaction KB14N – Reverse. The screen is shown below.

The screen variant must be UT INTERNAL ORDER variant. If it is not, change it


to that selection.

You must enter the Doc. date, Postg date, Period and ReverseDoc. The
ReverseDoc is the document number for the manual reposting document that
you wish to reverse. Doc. date, Postg date, & Period are for the new document
being created, not from the document being reversed. You should also type a
description in the Doc. text field to explain the reversal, but this field is not
required.

After completing the above fields, press or click Enter. The requested transaction
will be displayed. You will not be able to change any of the information on the
original document. The entire document must be reversed.

If it is the correct document, click on the save icon, , to post the reversal.

5/12/06 24
Internal Orders

5.2 Manual Reposting of Revenues


The manual reposting of revenue transactions, KB41N – Enter, KB43N – Display
and KB44N – Reverse look and function in nearly the same way as the manual
reposting of cost transactions described in the previous section.

The only difference in the two sets of transactions is that the manual reposting of
revenue screens allows for only the entry of recovery and revenue cost elements. In
other words, 439900 (supply recoveries) is allowed, but 439100 (supply
expenditures) is not allowed.

Remember, recoveries cannot be posted to WBS elements.

5.3 Interpreting the Reposting on Reports


Section 8 of this manual documents how to display the internal number on line item
reports for cost centers and for WBS elements. If you have used the manual
reposting feature to redistribute costs or revenues among internal orders, you need
to be aware of how these will appear on the line item reports.

The screen below shows a simple example to clarify what will appear.

1. Original posting, no IO

2. Reposting, split to 2 IOs

IO numbers appear in
this column
3. Posting to IOs

Item 1 points to the original posting of invoice 100006303 with no internal order
numbers assigned. (Note that the Controlling module assigns its own document
number to the invoice that differs from the invoice number assigned when the
invoice was created in the Financial module.)

5/12/06 25
Internal Orders

Item 2 points to two lines showing the manual reposting document 200001101
relieving the invoice when it is reposted to two internal orders. These are credits that
result in zeroing the original $1,500 posting on this report.

Item 3 points to the two lines showing the debits to the internal orders caused by the
reposting document 200001101.

If all of the entries to a cost center or WBS element are assigned to internal orders,
then the total of the first section of the report that displays documents without an IO
number will be zero when all costs/revenues are properly assigned. In the example
shown, an invoice for $1,948 has still not been assigned to any internal order(s).

6.0 Internal Order Groups


You may create groups of internal orders so that you can edit, plan and/or report on all
of the orders in a group together.

If you use several internal orders within a specific cost center or WBS element, IT IS
STRONGLY RECOMMENDED, that you have Internal Orders for all income and
expenditures (creating a miscellaneous IO if necessary) of the specific cost center or
WBS element. You should create at least one IO group containing all of the Internal
Orders for that cost center or WBS element. You can then report on the total of all of the
orders in the group and reconcile back to the total for the cost center or WBS element to
be certain that all costs and revenues are accounted for in the Internal Orders.

Internal Order groups can also be used to combine IO’s with similar purposes for
summary reporting. Or they can be used simply to make it easy to request reports for all
IO’s without needing to request each one separately.

All of the transactions dealing with creating, changing and displaying Internal Order
Groups can be found under the menu path Accounting >> Controlling >> Internal
Orders >> Master data >>Order group.

5/12/06 26
Internal Orders

6.1 Creating Order Groups


The transaction KOH1 is used to create order groups. The initial screen is shown
below.

You must enter an Order group name. It can be a maximum of 15 characters long,
but if you use more than 10, the eleventh character must be a period (.) as in the
example screen above.

Since all order group names can be viewed by all IRIS users, it is strongly
recommended that you follow the naming convention below to help locate and
identify your order groups:

First character – the code for your major organizational unit as shown below:

A – Institute of Agriculture C – Chattanooga


H – Memphis K – Knoxville
M – Martin N – Nashville
S – System-wide Administration T – Tullahoma
V – Veterinary Medicine X – Non-University of Tennessee

Next five characters - the last five numbers of the fund center for the department
using the order.

Next four characters – free form

Last five characters – must be .xxxx where the xxxx is free form. A period (.)
must separate the last four characters from the first ten characters of the name.

5/12/06 27
Internal Orders

If you wish to use a prior order group as a template for the new one, you may type
the name of the existing group in the Order group field.

Press or click Enter to create the group. The create screen is shown below.

This initial screen allows only a description for the group to be entered. To have
additional options available you must use the buttons on the application tool bar.

If you click on the Order button, , the screen will expand to provide fields to
enter order numbers as shown below. To list individual orders, type the numbers
only in the left-hand column as shown on the first line. To list a range of orders, type
the beginning order number in the left column and the ending order number in the
right column as shown on the second line. The second line adds all orders from
4000005 through 4000008 to the group.

BE VERY CAREFUL using the range feature since it is possible that another
department could have an IO number within any range.

5/12/06 28
Internal Orders

You can also add other order groups to the new order group. If you wish to do this,
you need to determine the level of the order group in relation to the group you are
creating. The level determines how totals are summed.

The Same level button, , will allow a group to be added at the same
level as the group you are creating.

The Lower level button, , will insert a group underneath the group you
are creating. The screen above shows a group that has been added at a lower level.

7.0 Reporting on Internal Orders


All of the reports are found under the path Accounting >> Controlling >>
Internal Orders >> Information system >>Reports for internal orders.

There are numerous reports available for internal orders. Appendix A shows a sample
of the results screen from the ones that seem more useful. It is strongly suggested that
you review these reports or run them against your own data to determine which ones
you might find most useful. Nearly all of the internal order reports give summary
information and you must take extra steps to display specific line item information by
type of transactions. For line item information, it may be more convenient to use the
reports KSB1 (for cost centers) and CJI3 (for WBS elements) using a specific variant
that will document the internal order numbers. (See section 8.)

5/12/06 30
Internal Orders

The IO reports that show commitments (encumbrances) only show commitments for
requisitions and purchase orders. No parked documents are included in the IO
commitments. While this may not make a major difference in many cases, it will in
others. The line item reports using internal order variants that are documented in
Section 8 of this manual will show all line items and are a better choice if you want to be
certain all commitments are included.

Since all of the IO reports function in a similar fashion, only two are documented here,
but you are encouraged to look at the results screen in Appendix A to get a quick idea
of the other reports that are available.

7.1 General Report Information - Creating an Extract


When you try to exit several of the reports under internal orders you may see the
screen below asking if you really wish to exit the report and giving you an
opportunity to create an extract. The option to create an extract is not always
present.

An extract will store the report data exactly as it appeared when you ran the report.
The data will only be kept for a limited amount of time.

You can just click on Yes and exit the report. In most cases this is what you will do.
In some case however, you may wish to create an extract.

To do this, click the box for Create extract, the screen below will appear.

5/12/06 31
Internal Orders

You must give a description for the extract and assign it a password. You must also
give it an expiration date. DO NOT USE the No expiration date option.

If you want to keep the information for more that 30 days, it would be better to
download the report to Excel on your own computer.

If you have created an extract, when you request that report again you may choose
to view the extract rather than the current data by clicking on the Data source button,
, on the report request screen.

7.2 Order: Actual/Plan/Commitments


This report is found under the path Accounting >> Controlling >> Internal Orders
>> Information system >>Reports for internal orders >>Plan/Actual

commitment items, but also for the plan if you have entered a plan by period. This
allows a comparison of how the expenditures/income is performing as compared to
what you had planned through the requested period(s).

If you want to see the entire fiscal year, enter 1 and 12.

You must enter either an order group in the Order group field or a single IO number
in the or value(s) field. Note that you may list multiple IO numbers if desired.
However, if there are multiple IOs that you want to see together on a regular basis, it
would be more convenient to create an order group containing them.

You enter either a cost element group name in the Cost element group field or a
single cost element in the or value(s) field.

8.0 How to List Internal Order Numbers on Line Item


Reports
Remember that the internal orders exist only within the Controlling module. Therefore
you must use reports within the Controlling module to view the orders. Within the
Controlling module, different reports must be used to display information for cost
centers and for WBS elements.

8.1 Showing Internal Order Numbers on Cost Center Documents


Use the report KSB1 – Cost Centers: Actual Line Items to show IO’s on cost center
documents. The menu path is Accounting >> Controlling >> Cost Center
Accounting >> Information system >> Reports for Cost Center Accounting >>
Line items >> KSB1 – Cost Centers: Actual Line Items.

Specific display variants have been created to allow you to easily display the internal
order number as part of the document listing. A sample request screen is shown
below.

5/12/06 36
Internal Orders

The information for the cost center, cost element and dates should be completed as
you usually would. In the Display variant field either select /Int Order (or one of the
other internal order variants) or type it into the field.

Note variant for internal order

A sample of the report that will result is shown below. The internal order number is
shown in the column labeled Aux. Acct assignment_1. This variant also subtotals the
documents for each IO within the range of cost centers and posting dates requested.
Note that documents without an IO number are shown at the top of the report.

To see the remaining columns on the report, use the direction icons on the
application tool bar or the scroll bar at the bottom of the screen to move to the
display to the right.

If a recovery has been posted without an internal order, IRIS enters ‘REO Profit
analsis/1’ in the Aux. Acct assignment_1 column instead of leaving it blank. These
will appear at the bottom of the report as shown below.

8.2 Showing Internal Order Numbers on WBS Element Documents


Documents posted to WBS elements are displayed by a different report, CJI3 –
Actual Costs/Revenues. The menu path is Accounting>> Project System >>
Information system >>Financials >>Line Items >> CJI3 – Actual
Costs/Revenues.

You may see the window below, requesting that you enter a database profile. If the
window appears, click on the matchcode box and choose profile 1.

The selection screen below will appear. There are a specific display variant has
been created to allow you to easily display the internal order number as part of the
document listing.

10. Listing IO numbers by External Order Number


It is possible to obtain a list of internal orders based on the External order number that
was entered for that internal order. Depending upon how you choose to use the
External order number field, you could obtain a list of all of the IO’s in your department
or all of the IO’s used for a particular PI.

In addition, you could use such a list to create a file of IO’s that you can use to run other
IO reports. To do so you would need to:

1. List all the IO’s for the WBS elements or Cost Centers;
2. Create an Excel file of the list
3. Import the order numbers into an IO report, to report on only those IO’s.

10.1 Selecting Internal Orders based on an External Order no.(s).


Use the report Z_IO_MASTERDATA_LIST – ‘Int Order Master Data List’ located at the menu
path Accounting >> Controlling >> Internal Orders >> Information system >> UT Custom
Reports.

5/12/06 41
Internal Orders

The screen below will appear and you may enter the cost center(s) or WBS
element(s) that you have entered into the External order number field. (You can use
the Multiple selections icon, , to enter multiple External order numbers.)

After you have entered the External order number(s) you want, click the green back
arrow, or the ‘Save’ icon if these settings will be used again.

Execute the report.

A screen similar to the one shown below will appear. The list should contain only
Internal Orders with the requested External order number. If you wish to use this list
to create a file to upload to internal order report selection screens you will need to
download this list to Excel.
