    Well, it's a little late to reply to the original question, but I found this thread while trying to figure out how to do the same thing myself and thought I would update it with the answer in case anyone else stumbles across this thread while searching as I did.

    You can actually make a change in the valid from date by using a KS01 Create Cost Center transaction and referencing the original cost center to create the additional period you want to add.

    In this case in KS01 you would fill out the fields in this manner:

    Cost Center: Existing Cost Center to be changed, let's say 1000

    Valid From 2007.08.01

    Valid to: 2007.09.30

    Reference Cost Center: 1000

    Controlling Area: Whatever the controlling area is

    In effect, rather than changing the cost center, you are creating the extra time period from the new from date to the original from date and referencing it to the cost center.

    The end result for us was that KS03 shows the cost center with the new from date and the old to date, which was the change we wanted.

    Not quite as obvious as a change, but it worked for us.

    It is time dependency of Master data in the Cost Center.

    Transaction code: KS02

    Enter your cost center, click on mater data. Next screen opens-up.

    Change the 'To' date from 2007.10.01 to 2007.08.01

      Supriya,

      Analysis Period only for anlyzing the cost centre for perticular dates not for changing the valid Date.

      Please check after changing the analysis period again excute the same cost centre in KS02 u can't find changed Valid Date.

    Hi

    Which date do you want to change in the cost center master data.

    Is it the Valid From date or to date.

    If it is valid from date it cannot be changed from 01.10.2007 to 01.08.2007.

    If you want to change it can be changed from 01.10.2007 to 02.10.2007 or 01.11.2007 and so on but the date to be changed cannot be prior to the date on which the cost center has already been created.

    If you try changing the date to a prior date the system will issue a message stating You selected an analysis period extending beyond the period for which the object was defined. This is not allowed in the change or display functions.

    To change the date you have to go to T.code KS02 select Edit>Analysis Period>other analysis period and input the new value and save the entry.

    Good Luck

    Hari
