Is it possible to use differents profit centers with one cost center?

I have one cost center "A510000" with the profit center "11111" as default (KS01).

In my profit center structure I have 2 codes avaliable: "11111" and "22222".

Is it possible to have a FI document containing the cost center "A510000" and the profit center "22222" (not the default)?

I tried but the message KI339 has shown up replacing the profit center.

I wanna use the profit center separate a specific business costs.

    Hi Antonio,

    If you change "analysis period" at cost center data via KS02, you can set different profit center master data.

    When you change profit center master data, if you get " Fill out all required entry fields" error, you may change message control proceed.

    You can change material control via OBA5 transaction code or go to SPRO> Controlling> General Controlling> Change Message Contol.

    And then enter "application area" as below.

    Add a new line, enter your user name and change message type as W (warning).

    Now you can change profit center master data in your cost center.

    PS:If your customers use profit centers reports effectively, you should inform your customer before change profit center master data in cost center. Because profit center's value will changed according to your new structure.

    no doubt you can change profit center in cost center master data by change message 011 in application area FAGL_ORG_UNITS into warning message but this change is time dependent change and it will be applicable from onward the moment you change it. You cannot use two profit center at a time in one cost center
