    hi Vinay,

    I am not sure what you are missing, purchase orders do not post into FI (the invoice does!). Even into Co only commitment is posted.

    • yes, that is the question: goods or services?

      in case of services you post in MIRO:

      credit - vendor

      debit - whatever cost account ==> there should be cost center here

      in case of goods you post

      1. MIGO

      debit - material account ==> there could be cost center here (however I am not sure how much sense does is make)

      credit - GR/IR account

      2. MIRO

      credit - vendor

      debit - GR/IR account

      (should not be cost center involved in this posting)

      (could be lines for tax as well, but that is not important now)

    I can't check the TCODE ME23N, but, if you are looking in the FI document and you dont see the cost center, maybe you try to change the layout and introduce this field, too. (This is the case when somebody filled the field in ME23N but I dont think that ME23N generates FI documents!!!

    Hi Vinay,

    In whole purchase cylce, the FI gets updated only from The time of Goods receipts. when you create Purchse order and update Cost Centre the FI in either case not hit. Post a goods receipt and when the document is posted check you will definitely see cost centre as cost object assisgnemnt.

    Do think this answer deserve points?

    Decide, good luck

    Regards

    Bharat
