How to restrict changing of Segment when posting FI Document

Dear Experts,

Segments are derived from Profit Center at the time of entering any FI document. The issue is that the user can easily change the Segment code resulting in wrong segmental reporting. For Eg:

Cost Center = CUF1012011

Profit Center = CUF1012011

Segment Assigned to PC = CUF

When posting an expense entry through FB50, the user enters the above cost center, resulting in the above profit center and segment being derived (which is correct). Now before posting this document, the user manually changes the Segment from CUF to SPF and here he is successful in posting the document with out any message being displayed.

How can we restrict this type of manual changing of segment field?

Looking forward for your expert advice!

    You have to define validation in GGB0. The prerequisite would be your profit centres which are using same segment. Define check against the segment for the above profit centres. If you find different segment then it will throw error message.

    Prerequisite -   CUF1012011

    Check - CUF

    Message - Error
