Derive profit center for sales order from KEDR

Dear experts,

I defined a derivation rule in KEDR to derive profit center from the sales office entered in the sales order. When I create a new SO, system derive dummy profit center, then I save SO > change SO > enter 'plant' again, at this time system derive profit center that I configured in KEDR. Please let me know why the system derive dummy profit center before I save SO, instead of configured profit center? Am I missing something?

Thank you for taking the time to consider my question.

Best regards

Tam

Hello,

could you provide some more information ... how is your KEDR-Rule working (screenshots pls)? Why are you not using the direct assignment of VBAP-PRCTR to CE1xxxx-PRCTR via TKEZU-Table? Where do you see the dummy Profit center? In the SO itself or in its profitability Segment?

If you do not have any further cost object in the account assignment tab of the SO and if you're not using the Profit Center Substitution in SO (GGB1) the Profit Center in the SO is derived by material master and this only possible if material number and plant is provided.

Regards

Holger

Hello,

Does the derivation for the sales office happen before the derivation of the PRCTR when the sales order is initially created ?

Hello,

Thank you for your answer.

@Holger: I want to derive profit center automatically based on sales office or sales group when I create a sales order, so I configure rules in KEDR (pls. see my screenshot derivation-rule.png). I see the dummy profit center in sales order line > tab account assignment > field profit center. I only configure KEDR, don’t configure GGB1 and blank profit center in material master.

@Waman: I checked my rules. The way these rules operate: I create a sales order, enter information for sales order header and sales order line (include sales office and sales group), at this time the system only derive dummy profit center, derivation of sales office is not carried out since the system cannot get value of sales office. Then I save SO, the system gets value of sales office and sales group and derive profit center configured in KEDR, however profit center is only updated in COPA automatically, profit center is not updated in sales order line automatically hence when I save SO > save DO > save Billing, dummy profit center is posted to FI document. The result is FI reports show dummy profit center, COPA reports show profit center configured in KEDR, exist the difference between FI with COPA.

I am finding a way to derive profit center automatically based on sales office or sales group. I mean when I create a sales order, the system get sales office and automatically derive configured profit center, I don’t want to enter profit center manually.

Best regards

Tam
