Error : Account xxxxxx requires an assignment to CO object



Hi,


We are facing error " Account xxxxxxx requires an assignment to CO object " it means there should be a entry of CC/WBS/order for respective GL but the problem is system giving error for different GL than user is trying to enter.

Both GL's are separate and there are no relation between two. This is while doing manual posting and it's happening randombly. Expert advice awaited..


Regards,

Irfan

    Hi Irfan.

    If your GL accounts have crated as a cost elements, then it requires CO account assignment. Unless you provide them you cannot post the document. So you have to provide it. However, you can also check the GL account in KA03, whether it has created as a cost element or not. Moreover, you can define CO account assignment objects for the cost elements manually inputting while posting a document or automatically be defining in OKB9 or substitution or cost element master record it self.

    Please check and let me know.

    Hi Irfan,

    Change the field status group entered in the GL account which you don't want to assign the Controlling object Or you can make optional in Field status groups which (Cost objects) made required.  Thanks.

    hi irfan

    Go to Tcode FS02 this is wher GL are made /changed .

    Now double click on GL xxxx which is showing error .

    Now check whether it is also defined as  cost element ? we can ckeck that by ticking edit cost element button shown above .

    Make sure to enter correct data while maintaing cost element .

    thanks everyone    .

    I want to clarify, this is manual FI posting through sap workflow system showing error for GL '920001' while user is posting entry in 670001 / 740059 / 740059 with CC/WBS. I am bit confused how system is showing error for different GL while there are no links between two.

    Hello Mukhtar/ Kaushal.

    We are getting error for GL 920001 while user is posting in GL 670001 as per one example provided in screen shot.

    @ Kaushal - GL 920001 has cost element created.

    Thx

    Hi Irfan,

    From the screen shot it looks like the GL is determined automatically by the system. It could be getting determined automatically to post some difference (For example difference due to foreign exchange). You can check if the GL is maintained in transaction code OBA1 against any business transaction.

    Since it is define as cost element system would expect a cost object. For automatic determination of the cost object you need to assign the cost center in transaction code OKB9.

    Please let me know if this solves your problem.

    Regards,

    Pintu

    Hi Pintu,

    This is manual posting and user assigned GL CC/WBS. even cost element is maintained for respective GL's. How system is showing error in different GL while it's not entered any where.

    As you can check above screen shot GL 670001 with CC is entered already by user but error is appearing for GL 920001, Ideally if anything wrong with provided details error should be related to respective GL/CC only.

    Regards,

    Irfan

      Hi Ifran.

      What is the tcode used? Is it MIR7 or MIRO (In the picture its showing Invoice Verification).

      It will good if you give full screen capture and can give the GL accounts description especially for GL account 920001. 😊

    Hi,

    Actually this error comes into picture when u have given cost element for u r GL accounts, by using the T.Code FS00 and then click on edit cost element option top on the right side of the screen, u can find there the tab with default account assignment, in this tab u have to give cost center for that particular GL account.

    hope this might help to resolve u r issue,

    Regards,

    Amjad
