error KI 280(create cost element for GL account) while converting PR in PO

Hi Experts ,

When we create a sales order with an item of item category (TAS)(Third part sales) a purchase requisition is automatically created and these requisitions pick a G/L account which is defined for third party sales

We have been using this G/L account for third party sales and never defined this account as cost element.

We do not want to post the charges in to controlling , is this possible for us to correct the error without changing message control?

Now when we convert such purchase requisitions in to a purchase order system gives an error "define G/L account 60100071 as cost element".

Earlier we have been creating PO's from PR's with same GL account.

I am new to this module and will appreciate if can get some documentation on account determination and posting of charges at my personal email anand.troy@gmail.com

Any help in this regard will be appreciated,

Thansk & Regards

Anand Tripathi

    HI,

    One of the reasons why SAP is giving you this error message is because in case of TAS, the sales order itself becomes the CO object. You can't avoid making a posting to CO in this scenario.

      Hi Akhilesh,

      Thanks for your reply.

      what exactly determines whether it should post to a CO or not, like when it should search for CO object and when it should not.

      In our case earlier we used tocreate TAS with same G/L account and it never asked for a CO object, problem started after a hot pack was implemented.

      We ahve checked SAp note 356094 but we never defined message KI280 as error message in OBA5.

      Hi Anand

      do not change the message to be able to temporarily correct this error - cos this will lead to further problems later

      the reason u get this error is cos this is a scenario where the setting tells the system it is made inhouse, so it wants to cost it -

      this setting is maintained on the Material master, MRP 1 view - material group field - if u have a PTO there, usually the system things that the item is going to be produced in- house, therefore this error

      if u take this off, it should be fine

      hope this helps
