Fixed Cost Center against Person Responsible.

Hi Guys,

I am looking to default the cost center field based on the person responsible selected. Can I use substitution with user exit. How do I proceed?

Please suggest.

Regards,

Sidhesh

    Hi,

    U mean...Does Cost Center needs to be changed as and when person responsible is changed?

    Well, that can be achieved through normal substitution. Why don't you use Prerequisites PRPS-VERNR and PRPS-FKSTL.

    But you need to hardcode many values based on these prerequisites. I hope you may have Many:1 (many is to one) relationship. Eg- Many person responsible may have only 1 cost center fixed. 😊

    • Hi

      for many to one relationship you can also use Sets along with substitution. then in future there night be situation where you need to add or delete person responsible so you can change Sets and substitution will work.

      thanks

    Hi,

    You may also think to use the WBS field selection having influencing function (OPUK) and  add a normal validation in front of this or make the person responsible field required to ensure you got a field to look from.

    Dear,

    Whether you would like to assign the Responsible cost center or Requesting cost center?

    Are you planning to substitute all WBS elements of your Project definition based on "Person responsible" in project definition?

    In standard SAP you can assign cost center based on PERSON RESPONSIBLE in PROJECT DEFINITION to WBS elements using transaction OPSI(Validations) and OPSN(Substitutions)

    Responsible Cost center - Responsible to carry out the WBS element activity

    Requesting Cost center - This cost center which is transferred to Master data of AUC and cost will be settled.

    I can suggest here using validation and substitution with transaction OPSI & OPSN based on person responsible substitute "Responsible cost center" and based on "Applicant no." substitute "Requesting cost center", as Applicant may be user department who is requesting the CAPEX in his location.

    This is just an idea i got it.
