    I presume you are talking about the sales revenue GL account in your question.


    1. Do you have CO-PA? If yes, sales would be cost element category 11 and sales discounts would be cost element category 12. This will enable integrated transfer of billing documents to CO-PA.


    2. But, if you are talking about cost-reducing revenues, your cost element category would be 01. Please read the SAP help text below, on this:

    Cost-reducing revenues are revenues that are to be handled in CO similarly to overhead costs, and which reduce the prices of an activity type or the costs to be assessed. This is the case, for example, with rent revenues, which reduce the room costs to be assessed. Cash discount amounts and exchange rate amounts are also cost-reducing revenues.

    Note:

    In contrast to revenues of cost element category 11, cost-reducing revenues in the CO module are typically assigned to cost centers. Note that when you use Profitability Analysis (CO-PA, costing-based) these cost-reducing revenues can only be transferred to Profitability Analysis during secondary allocations and not during invoicing.

    If you can explain the business requirement behind your question a little bit, it will greatly increase the chances of getting an apt response.

    Best,

    ST

    Hi Deepak

    You can assign a CC in OVF3 to the Sales Order reason code.. When Billing happens, the posting will go to CC

    If you directly assign the CC in Sales Order account assignment, and you have Cost Elements with category 11/12, - > That wont be right because it will only make a Statistical Posting in CC

    Ensure that your CE Catg is 01, if you post to CC

    Hi,

    Through SD process revenue values will get generated and If you make cost center as account assigment in sales order you can't process further that vaues from cost center. If you want to track the revenues and cost of the sales order you can make the account assignment as IO, WBS, from here you can settle the values to some other object.
