Dear Experts ,

Does SAP allows the cost center to be assigned on a customer level (Sold-to). I understand that order reason could be mapped to a cost center , but is customer to cost center assignment possible .

Thanks

Sai

In std not possible to have cost center assignment to customer master. If you check standard customer account group for both company code data and sales data field status, you will not field relevant for cost center or assignment related to it.

And your understanding related to order reason(TCode OVF3) with the combination for sales area and cost center is correct.

Moreover. your requirement is not clear. Why do you want to assign an internal cost center to customer master?

Thanks, JP

Thanks JP. There is no hard requirement where I need to link the CC to a customer , but I was trying to weigh out options based on the offering.

Scenario is like this .....there might be situations where a product might be internally consumed by different teams for sample purposes ( EX: R&D ,marketing , sales etc)... Either I can opt for a order reason to CC mapping with different order reasons for different departments or the customer service can enter it manually in the cost center field in the sales order . If there is a new department tomorrow which is consuming the sample, I don't want to end up creating a new order reason ..which is why I was trying to check if standard SAP offers any solution where a customer could be mapped to a CC. Hope I am clear..

Since the order reason solution won't be flexible based on my above example, I prefer to go with manual way, unless anyone has a better solution . Please advise.

Thanks

I presume, the above activity would happen either via MB1A / MB1B / MB1C with some movement type. While executing any of these transactions, you have one header text field which you can make use of it.
