Transaction KEFC with Account Based CO-PA


We have created an operating concern and activated both Account Based and Costing Based CO-PA. We are experiencing 2 problems:

Problem 1:

We are using transation KEFC with account based CO-PA to transfer planning values. When executing the load, we get the following error:

Characteristic value SAEI 4700101 does not exist for characteristic KSTAR (Cost Element)

Since we are using account based CO-PA and KSTAR is a fixed field, we cannot maintain the values directly, any suggestions. We allready implemented note 35114 without any success.

Problem 2:

Related to this problem is a transfer of planned values from CO-PA Costing Based to PCA. When executing transaction KE1V, we get the following error:

Valuation approaches are inconsistent

Message no. KG221


You tried to transfer an object to Profit Center Accounting that is stored using different valuation approaches in CO-PA and EC-PCA. This is not possible.

All config is for the transfer is set up (+/- Sign and Account determination).

Any help appreciated.

    to the first error message: please check, that cost element 4700101 exist in controlling area SAEI.

    I think, you made a typing error by note number 35114.

    To the second error message: probably the error KG221 occurs, because you are trying to transfer the legal

    view data from CO-PA into the controlling area with profit-center valuation view.

    This is not permitted for security reasons since the

    users afterwards display the data in the pr-ctr valuation view and it will very possibly leads into wrong interpretation of data. You can find some details in note 122902.
