Origin Object Type for Plant Maintenance Orders in Profit Center Accounting


I want to make a selection for plant maintenance orders in transaction KE5Z, report for line items in Profit Center Accounting. When checking possible input options for the selection field <b></b>Origing Object Type<b></b> the system shows value 15 for Maintenance Orders. However I discovered in our system the maintenance orders are reported as Origing Object Type 03, which is Overhead Orders according to the selection list. So I cannot distinguish between overhead orders and maintenance orders in this report.

What is the cause our maintenance orders are assigned to Origin Object Type 03 in stead of 15 and what is the customizing transaction to correct this ?

    Looks like, this is no longer supported. Refer to note 168004 and 102434.

    Cause and prerequisites

    These functions were not programmed to meet the above requirements.

    As of Release 4.0, the object type is transferred directly.


    Once you have implemented the advance correction. the origin object type 'Overhead cost order' (03) is assigned irrespective of what is the SCOPE for orders.

    As a result of implementing this note or as of Release 4.6B, the order category distinguishes between overhead cost orders and production orders in the origin object type. In this case, the following origin object types result (as described above in 1.):

    Order category 04 to 10, 40 => 04 (production order)

    All other order categories => 03 (overhead cost order)

    The logic that the origin object type was set depending on the object class (as described above in 2.) is no longer supported. The object class can be evaluated separately in Reporting. -

    The corrections of this note refer in Release 4.0B to the corrections from Note 102434.
