MIR7 -Error specify a CO account assigment

For GL code 601010 MM small difference a/c and for that cost element there is no cost centre assigned.

How ever the GL has 5 cost centres assigned in OKB9

But when i make an entry in MIR7

It is giving an error stating that


u have not defined a co account assignment for an account that is relevant to cost accounting.

Systems Response

Account 601010 is defined as cost element

This means that u must always specify a CO account assignment


Enter on of the following co account assignment


costcenter/activity type

Sales order item

project/wbs element

Cost object(process manufacturing)

Network/Network activities

Business process

Profitability segment

Real estate object

pls help me solve the issue

full points will be awarded

warm regards

      Valuation area Cost Centre

      Given Given

    Hi Manjunath,

    Siply go to KA02 and assign a relevant cost centre under the tab default account assignement for accoount 601010.

    The problem is happening becuase the FI entries come automatcally so you do not have an option to amnuaaly assign cost object. it has to be done in advance.

    This will solve your problem.
