Cost Center Locking for Direct Posting

Hi all,

I am getting an error reading something like this:

"cost center is locked for primary posting.".

Can any tell me how do I address issue? Is changing the cost center in the control tab of change cost center node in img guide the only way? If i do that, do I need to explicity activate it? And most importantly, which of the 6 check boxes prevents(if at all) from being directly posted.

Thanks,

Vivek

PS: Good and fast replies shall be rewarded 😉

    Yes the control data tab if it locked then unlock it for actual posting and direct posting and planning.

    Deselect that try.

    Hi Vivek,

    Execute Transaction code <b>KS02</b>, input the affected cost centre to change the master data. Click on the "Control" tab and uncheck the box "Actual primary costs". Save your changes. With this amendment, you would no longer have the error message during posting.

    Normally, if the check box is checked, this is what would happened.

    Lock Indicator for Actual Primary Postings

    Indicator defining whether a cost center is locked for posting with direct costs.

    If the indicator is <b>checked/active</b>, <b>no primary costs can be posted to the cost center</b>. You may, however, still use the cost center for evaluations such as summarization, etc.

    I hope the above helps.

    Do not forget to award the points please.

    Regards,

    Jacob
