Do not use Controlling area with Company Code

H experts,

I have an issue where when trying to create a new Project Definition (trans. CJ20N) i m getting the error "Do not use Controlling area with Company Code". I have check around and every where is saying that i need to :

1 - in OKKP - assign company code to controlling area

2 - in OKKP - activate the components like cost center accounting etc

3 - in OKEQ - create version 0 for fiscal year.

I have done all this and still I get the error.

Is there anything I am missing please ??

    Dear William,

    Did you assign the Company Code and Controlling area in T.code OX19 ?

    • So, check according Eli Klovski recommendation below, in table T001-KOKFI should be defined. Or you can go thru t.code OBY6.

      This error message is generated by function module RK_KOKRS_FIND, this FM is really simple by checking the field KOKFI in table T001.

    Hi,

    There is something wrong in Company code assignment. Check T001-KOKFI indicator if it's not blank by any chance.

    You can change it via OX06 transaction.

    Hello Gabriel,

    I have checked table T001 like you suggested and value for KOKFI field is "2" - Cross-company-code cost accounting.

    Therefore the problem is still there.

    Do you have nay more suggestions please ?

    Hi William,

    In tx OKKP, double click your CO Area, which option has been chosen in "Assignment control" ? (1 - CO Area same as company code or 2 - Cross-company-code cost accounting)

    Could you give the error message ID?

    Best Regards,

    Daniel

    What is the impact if you want to change the Controlling Area assignment from CoCd - CO Area to

    2 (Cross-company-code). The company wants to add a new Company code to their Controlling area and are unable to do so because the it is set to look at only one Company code.

    Anyone experienced this before?

    Regards,

    Caroline
