Problem for creation of cost element category 31

Dear Expart

We are unable to create cost element category 31 for WIP/RA

System giving error - for creating without company depended info.

During creation of GL/Cost element through FS00, automatically company code info are coming.

Pls. give us the feedback on this.

Below error message we have received regarding cost element category 31.

Results analysis for orders/projects only possible without CoCd data (E001)

Message no. FH219

Diagnosis

For account 74000004 in controlling area E001, you have selected cost element category 31 (Order/Project Results Analysis). This cost element category is not used for posting-relevant business transactions, which means that company-code-dependent data is not required.

However, company-code-dependent data exists in company code E001.

Procedure

Change the cost element category or delete the company-code-dependent data.

Regards

Tarek H Chy

    Hi Tarek,

    If this note is not a solution then the solution has to come from SAP OSS/Incident. Please raise an incident with high priority with SAP.

    This shall help.

    Can you also try with fresh GL (Cost element) along with OSS/incident.,

    Regards

      Thanks

      But system is giving same error.

      My procedure is

      1) First create cost element by using FS00

      2) During creation we need to give company code info.

      3) As per note - after creation we have removed Account Currency & Field Status Field information.

      4) Then change Cost element category from 43 to 31

      5) Press SAVE

      But system is giving below/same error

      Results analysis for orders/projects only possible without CoCd data (E001)

      We are unable to remove company code info. Because company code info we need to put at first.

      Regards

    Dear Tarek,

    You may need to create a new cost element in this case.

    Hi,

    Just to share my experience that might come handy for others.

    Due to field status "required" in GL account group, I was inserting some company code data while trying to create 31 category secondary cost element and, thus, getting error FH219.

    Having checked with SAP support I realized no company code data fields may be filled while creating 31 cost element. I then had to change customizing in account group to make the field "optional" in order to be able to create 31 category cost element.

    Regards,

    Filipe
