    Dear Stefen:

    As I know, the valid period can't be changed directly. But you can change the valid period indirectly in such way:

    1. if your want to extend valid period (e.i. original is 2007.01.01 to 2007.12.31, now you want 2007.01.01 to 2008.12.31), you should create cost element from 2008.01.01 to 2008.12.31 again.

    2. If you want to reduce valid period (e.i. original is 2007.01.01 to 2010.12.31, now you want 2007.01.01 to 2008.12.31), you should go into change screen first (ka02) and select delect function in menu cost element. The it will goto the delection screen and you can set the delete period from 2009.01.01 to 2010.12.31.

    Is it can meet your demand?

    Hi All,

    Thanks for your response...........

    My concern is, i have a document posted to 43100 GL Expense acct, which is also defined as cost element, GL field status G004(cost accts). But when the original document is posted no is no assignment of any cost object.

    But i have to reverse the document and when i use FB08, the reversal is popping up with error " Assignment of CO object is neccesaary " Assign the cost center.

    Is there any way we can update the cost center for posted docuemnt? if so how? and can i make the cost element invalid for previous month so that it will not ask for cost object and change the field status of the GL from g004 to G001 only for reversal and set it back after posting is done.

    Appreciate ur feedback and suitab;le points are rewarded with points.

    best

      It appears that when original document was posted at that time the cost element was not created and as a result the same was posted without any CO assignment. When you are trying to reverse the document system is asking for a co object (since cost element is now available). If your objective is only to reverse the document then you can have a default co object assigned to this cost element either in cost element master or in OKB9. This will allow you to reverse the document.

      There is no way you can reverse the document without CO assignment since cost element is now created.
