MIGO / MB1A - G/L hidden in MB1A but not in MIGO


Please could you help me with a question about MIGO?

When I need to adjust up stock in MB1A I just enter the plant/storage location, movement type - then in the next screen the material and quantity. This saves and when I check MB51 and double-click into the relevant line I see a display screen from MIGO, I can see here that G/L account (KONTO), Cost Centre (KOSTL) and Profit Center (PRCTR) have been automatically populated.

The KONTO, KOSTL and PRCTR fields are not visible in MB1A - so they must be determined by SAP - I assume.

I debugged and I can see this happens in the Process After Input (PAI) in screen 0410 (I think) in MB1A.

When I use MIGO (Goods Receipt, Other) I do the same process I can under the "Account Assignment" tab that the G/L, Cost Center and Profit Center are all empty. When I press save I get a message saying "Enter Cost Center".

I'm trying to use MIGO instead of MB1A but this is stopping me. I understand that we could make KOSTL/Cost Center a non-mandatory field in IMG/SPRO - but I'm not sure if this would help.

Does anyone have an experience of this? Thanks, Chris

    I would suggest to read OSS note 778256 - MIGO: Changed field selection customizing

    and the related note 1459249 - MIGO: Required Fields not right set for some movement types

    as in general the behavior should be equal in MIGO and MB1A

    I think you might me using 201 as movement type, now system will not adopt cost center automatically until it is coming from some user exit or from the reservation if you are using one.

    Default cost center is not possible for movement type 201 as per my knowledge until you are using some user exit or reservation as reference.
