FCO_COPA_EX_N - Error during invoice posting

635 Views

Hi experts,

In the S4HC system I have the following error

Define a cost element category for account 70030000 (controlling area A000)

Message n. KI280

Diagnosis

Account 70030000 is a profit and loss account. You assigned it to an object in cost accounting (for example, a cost center, order, project, or profitability segment).

In this case, a cost element category must exist for account 70030000 in the determined controlling area A000.
See transaction FS00, "Control Data" area.

Procedure

Define a cost element category for account 70030000 and post again or delete the auxiliary account assignment to objects in cost accounting.

With profitability segment assignment, the error message is only displayed when account-based profitability analysis is activated. Here it may be a good idea to suppress the error message and ignore the account assignment during the posting. This is particularly the case when the posting is not only relevant for the result from the usual business activity, for example for interest from cross-company sales in a billing document. Such postings should not be taken into consideration in the profitability analysis. In order to do this, you can define the account 70030000 in transaction FCO_COPA_EX_N (IMG -> Controlling -> General Controlling -> Account Assignment Logic -> Exceptions for Postings to Profitability Segment)

I don't understand why S4HC has an error message with customizing for on premis, but I don't want to create the cost element for the account, i would like to solve the problem using this solution ( define the account 70030000 in transaction FCO_COPA_EX_N (IMG -> Controlling -> General Controlling -> Account Assignment Logic -> Exceptions for Postings to Profitability Segment) How can I do in S4HC if i don't have the same step of SPRO?

Thanks in advance
