Postings on Dummy Profit center


He have a problem with all postings going to DUMMY PC,even though the material s have in their masterdata the profit centers maintained

the problem is that we cannot assign a default profit center to a cost center as there are a lot of profit centers of the materials that should not be compiled into a single one,and to create a cost center for every profit center is also not a viable solution.

As i am not a FICO expert,I would kindly ask for as detailed as possible guidance to overcome this issue.

Thank you

    If you want to post this account on cost center, cost center works here as real CO object and the postings from real CO object flow online on profit center assigned in cost center master record. If

    no profit center is assigned in cost center master record then profit center dummy is automatically derivated and posted.

    The profit center is not a real account assignment object thus it is not possible to derive the profit center from OKB9 during FI posting.

    Best Regards,

    Dear Raul,

    You also have the option to define profit center via 3KEH (old release) or FAGL3KEH (release with New GL) to define a default profit center for one G/L account.

    Hope it is helpful.

    Best regards,

    Problem solved-the fact is ,as I mentioned,we cannot assign a profit centre to a cost center because we use different profit centers for materials and the same cost center.

    The problem was triggered by the approval process at the purchase requisition it is done via cost center,and the cost center's profit center field was blank,SAP assigned during MIGO the dummy PC.

    The workaround accepted was that after PR approval,before the PR to PO conversion,the account assignment (K) has to be removed,and then MIGO takes the material PC .

    Thanks for your input.
