    HI ,

    YOu can default cost centre in different ways . YOu automatically populate cost centre becuase you can't manully enter for those cost element .Like posting coming from MM or SD . Mostly Stock related like comsuption accounts are defined .YOu have following options .

    1)if you asign Cost centre in Cost element system populates that.

    2)IF you define Cost element in OKb9 the system populates Cost centre defined in there.

    3) if you leave all blank above options then you have to manually enter the cost centre.

    I can suggest you another way which is subsitution where system will susbsitute the cost centre . We are currently using them and we have created as below






    Cost centre xxxxxxxx

    and this cost centre is related tro business area which we want .

    When we did this we delete all setting of defaulting cost centre .

    Many Thanks

    Hi Abhay,

    OKB9 is always a last option. It can be overwritten by enter the required cost objects manually. If you don't maintain any values while doing transaction, it will pick the cost object from OKB9.

    Hi Abhi

    This is my 1st reply from Scn Mobile App. Let's see how it goes

    Simple answer is Yes. Okb9 is the way to go for your case. If you have GL and BA in the posting line item, CC will be derived from Okb9.

    However, note that CC must be Optional in FSG of GL accounts for Okb9 to work
