Delete cost element

Hello Everybody,

I try to delete a cost element with T KA04 in batch method, but it is more than a day since I executed and it is still going on.

Do you know if this is right?

On the other hand, I try to do this because a user created a GL account, then they made a posting in this account (without a cost center), and finally this GL account was created as a cost element. After this process, they realized the posting was wrong because a cost center has to be used.

Do any of you know how to deal with this problem?, how to delete the cost element or reverse the document they posted?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Israel,

    Once a value is posted to a G/L account or a Cost Element, you cannot delete the same. You can only block the same so that no future postings happen to these.

    You can reverse the document posted using the T Code FB08.

    Let me know if this solves your issue.

    Regards

      HI Sridhar,

      I have already tried to reverse the document using T FB08 but it does not allow me, because as the GL account was created as cost element after the posting, the system displays an error that a cost center is necessary.

      Thanks again

    Israel,

    The only way is to reverse the entry and do a reposting. But still it is not possible to delete that cost element becuase the posting exist. so the best way is reverse (FB08) the original entry without the cost object assignement and create a new entry. .

      Cost element

      There is no transaction data for the cost elements in the planning or commitments data in the affected fiscal years.

      No statistical key figures have been planned.

      I tried but of much success. SAP document says the above wrt deletion.
