Changing Actual posted Cost Center in a Statistical Interal Order


At the moment, when a statistical Internal order has posting on it, the "actual posted cost center" can no longer be changed. Is there anyway to do this? We are using version 4.6c

Many thanks and best regards,

    While creating FI document, you can change the actual posted cost center, which is stored in statistical order master data, by switching off message KI337. To do this, go to the IMG "Controlling General" and choose the IMG activity "Change message control" (Application area "KI", Message number 337). (T.code : OBA5)

    You can change the message to "W" warning, or totally switch it off.

    While creating the FI document, system will still bring the pre-stored cost center; but now you'll be able to overwrite it.

    Best regards,

      You can create a validation for that control from t.code OKC9. Here, you'll select a user-exit as validation point. You can use one of the predefined ones; or create a new form pool according to your needs.

      In the exit code, cobl-kostv should be read from table aufk, and should be written on to cobl-kostl.
