Unable change Acc/Ass/Cat for purchasing requisition for std. order(ME51N)


Hi Folks,

I have got next issue (TC- ME51N):

If you have a held purchase requisition and change the coding from an Account Assignment Category of Order (using a planned (statistical) internal order number) and change the Account Assignment Category to Fund centre/Cost centre, the cost centre number does not register in SAP. The program keeps asking for a cost assignment element (which is there).

If any one can help me with this?

Thank you in advance,




<b>It related to statistic order number only.</b>

You create a purchase requisition using Transaction ME51N.

The purchase requisition is assigned to an order and the respective cost center was determined from the order. Then you change the assignment of the purchase requisition from the order to a fund / cost center. The cost center remains visible. You accept remained cost center but the system does not accept it (error message # KI235). You delete remained cost center and type it in again (the same number as you allowed to use only one CC #) but the system still does not accept it. Only if you can change CC# to different one and then type in the same remained cost center # so the system accepts it.
