Updating the Cost Center Hierarchy

Dear All.,

I've created the standard hierarchy for cost centers. Now the client wants one of the existing node, has to rename and include the new sub nodes in that.

For this when i copy the existing one renamed, but the system is not accepting the changes. It is giving the error msg like:

Object cannot be assigned to object XXXXXX in the period 01.01.1900 - 31.12.9999

Because my doubt is when i copied the existing one and saving that with new name why it is giving the error stating the period.

How can i resolve this.......please urgent...

Thanks to all.......

    It is SAP standard. Once you create a cost centre assigning to a heirarchy and has some posting it will never allow to change the heirarchy.

    At the most you can change the description of the heirarchy.

    You can create an alternative heirarchy.

    Hope this is of some use, if yes, please assign points.

      The issue here is if the nodes are less i can very well do that, but in my case there are 3500 are there. (Only Nodes)

      How can i do the creation again, it takes lots of time, which is very less for me at the movement.

      What shall i do....
