Hi all,

When i created a invoice in reference to a PO, i encountered a error, stating account determination need to be done done in OBYCtrans key KDM for the particular plant. As per this, I changed the setting of OBYC in trans key KDM. Now this this issue was resolved. later to this i again encountered an error stating, the GL account conf in the OBYC trans key KDM need to be extended as a cost element.

I cant understand the logic behind this. Can you help me out in this.

    Hi,

    As the posting has to be reflected in CO( for transferring into profit center accounting or COPA etc.) you need to extend the same as cost element(1 or 11 category).

    After that aslo you will encounter to a problem ... it requires a CO object assignment...

    Then in OKB9 you can maintain the same.

    Cheers

    hi,

    in OBYC kdm is for material management exchange rate diff. this means that this transaction key is used if there is import scenario.

    in this case the exchange rate of indian rupees with the foreign currency can be diff during the payment and invoice receipt.

    the loss or profit of the exchange rate is directly posted to the loss on forex if there is loss and profit on forex if there is profit and these accounts are created in gl accounts.

    and you can create these transactions in co through cost elements which is your profit elemets or loss elements

    so you have to edit the cost element in the respective gl accounts using in kdm and give any co object like order,cost object,cost center,activity type.

    hope this will resolve your porblem.
