Recording transaction code ks01

Hi Experts,

I am doing one recording for transaction code KS01 (cost center).

During recording i entered the mandatory values for Tcode KS01 Ie. Cost Center no, Controlling Area, valid from-to details.

After that i entered values to the basic data like Name, Person Responsible, Hierarchy area and currency fields which are mandatory.

But my problem is that, when I entered the values for hierarchy area, its showing a error that " Area<the values i entered> can't be used here ".

Also its not showing any search values.

Also I checked csks table and find values for hierarchy area field KHINR and entered the same values but showing the same error.

So please guide me what data i should entered there so that it ll work properly.

Thanks & Regards,

Ajit Sarangi

    Hi Ajit,

    Without the access to the Master Data in your system, it is a little difficult to predict exactly what could be wrong (at least from a Technical perspective). But if you debug, I don't think it would be a difficult problem to crack. The Message that you are getting is Message Number '070' in Message Class KS, if I am correct. Go to SE91, then navigate to the Message KS-070. Do a WHERE USE LIST for the Message and you will find 3 programs that use the Message. When you are using KS01 / KS02, I believe the Message is generated from Include LKMA1F30 (1st in the list). Put a Break point at the 1st executable statement iN Subroutine 'khinr_check' in Include LKMA1F30 and then use KS01 / KS02. You would get to know exactly what is going on in your case.

    May be you do not have authorization for that.

    Do one thing before recording, open KS01 in one window & in time of entering the HIERARCHY area,open SU53 in another window.

    Take su53 screen shot & talk with your BASIS team.

    Also note OKEON is tcode for standard hierarchy change.

    check this note also

    Note 1056150 - KS01: Cost center creation not possible

    Hope it helps.

    Hierarchy Area are actually cost center group, so first ceate a hierachy (KSH1) and declare it as the standard for the control area (0KW1) then you will be able to create cost center.

    Check Customizing, and execute the options in the correct order (after reading their documentation)
