Need to load and report trading partner in cost center planning

We recently changed from having separate accounts for each partner company to using common inter-company accounts and trading partner to reduce the
volume of accounts in use.

The existing process for loading plan data is via spreadsheet into cost center accounting. However now it is necessary to include trading partner.

Any suggested steps for including trading partner in the load program as well as the cost center planning reports are greatly appreciated.

    Hi Dan,

    I have just joined this SAP community. Did you get any solution to your question? We have the same situation in our company too. I suppose Profit Center could be used for this, but ... is it possible to plan by trading partner GL company (intercompany transactions) in Cost Center accounting as well ?

    Thank you in advance!

    • SAP confirmed that CO planning does not include trading partner and thus this is not supported.

      Therefore our solution is to load plan into new GL table FLAGLFLEXT which allows for trading partner and also includes the actual data by cost center and trading partner.

      I hope this helps. Good luck.
