Cost Element values not getting displayed in PS report


I created a form and report in CJE4 (Form1) and CJE1 (Report1). In the form a value category is assigned (PS-USEXP) The value category has been assigned with cost element group (also PS-USEXP). Cost element C1 is present in the assigned cost element group.

A project was created and a purchase order was raised with a project related WBS element and GL account as C1 - the primary cost element. Now on executing the report (Report1), it should display the value stored in cost element C1 as this is assigned to the particular value category. But the value is not getting displayed at all. To my surprise, if is assign another value category (PM-EXM-US) in the form, the C1 value is displayed in the report. I really couldn't understand this behavior.

To cross check the assignment, I have checked CJVC - Value category analysis and found cost element is assigned to only one value category is is green in color. Also I checked table TPIK3 table where i could see the following,

1. Value category PS-USEXP is assigned to Cost Element group PS-USEXP

2. Value category PM-EXM-US is assigned to none.

Please help me understand if there are any other place to assign cost element to value category apart from OPI2 (PS component) and OKI2 (PM component)

    Hi Sathesh,

    Both value categories should be defined in OPI2 as PS component (OPI2) in order to appear correcly in the PS reporting. Could you check this?
