Freight Line Item on customer billing documents

The systems is ECC 6.0.7. We will be charging freight cost to our customers going forward, so freight will show up as a separate posting to a separate GL account. A new condition type is created for this purpose.

Our business wants to post freight costs to a cost center account assignment. I have checked and currently the sales order posting screen does not have cost center field available for input while internal order field is. So I am guessing there will be some screen layout settings needed to make cost center field available for input. What are the settigns needed to make it available?

The cost center account assignment field is available in the posted billing documents. Can we just add cost center for the posting at that time even if the sales order would not contain it? We want the freight line only to post to cost center, but not the price portion of the posting. Is it possible to do it because it seems that account assignment is entered for each at the billing item and price, freight, handling and taxes related to each item will pick up the same cost center entered for that billing item?

    Discuss with SD consultant to activate cost center at header level in Sales order. SD settings can activate the same. As per my understandign the SD module ,you can derive cost center either sales area wise or else you can enter manualy while creating the SO.

    OVF3 settings can help you.
