Field Cost ctr is a required field for G/L account

Hello,

When posting an SD invoice I get the following message:

Field Cost ctr is a required field for G/L account xxxx xxxxx

No FI posting could be made due to the reported error.

The G/L account used has a field status group in which cost center is a required field. In OKB9 a cost center is maintained for the corresponding cost element, but I still get this error message.

We really need a cost center entry when posting to this G/L account, so changing the field status group isn't a solution.

Does anyone know how to solve this?

    hi,

    See for all Cost Elements in that invoice whether Cost Center is maintained or not.

    That's it.

      Hi Johan,

      Field Status can be managed throgh OB41 and OBC4 for GL entry. In your case your have mentioned Cost Center as Required in OBC4 and Optional in OB41(posting Key) which is a Error!

      both should be optional.

      Now go to OB41 and select posting key 50 and select Cost Center as Optional. This will surely solove your problem.
