      I get the message; where I have to assign Chart of acc to Controling area in OKKP is not possible

      Differing charts of accounts: INT - CAXX

      Message no. KT299

      Diagnosis

      The system makes consistency checks during assignment of a company code to a controlling area as part of assignment control.

      The same checks take place if assignments already exist and you change the basic data in the controlling area, or if you define the controlling area and company code as a 1:1 structure.

      If the check finds an error, the system cannot execute the function ("Assign" or"Change basic data"). If you do not maintain the required data for the consistency check (such as currency, chart of accounts, or fiscal year variant in the company code), this also results in an error message.

      Chart of accounts INT, controlling area XX01, does not agree with chart of accounts CAXX, company code XX01.

      System Response

      Processing is terminated.

      Procedure

      Ensure that the same chart of accounts is assigned to controlling area and company code.

    Try this method go to okkp and change the COcd- co area back to chart of accounts same as company code. The sytem should pick up the chart of accounts and then change it back to 2 option it should allow you to input the chart of accounts.

    Hi katya

    If you have all ready changed the chart of accounts in co code and not able to change the COA in controlling area , the possible reason would be that there would be some secondary cost element created in the controlling area for the previously existing COA so check it and delete the secondary cost elements after that you can change the COA in the controllling area.

    assign points if use full

    thanks

      It is neccesary to change primary cost, all accounts created would have to be deleted.

      When you realize it you can change the chart of accounts in CO through OX06.

      Best Regards,

    If the COA which is originally used has/had GL accounts in COA level and not necessarily Company Code level, the controlling area maintains primary cost elements. Use KA24 to delete all primary cost elements associated with the present COA in the controlling area. This is one of the steps to release the COA field in CO Area.
