IO (KO88) Settlement Error - Cost Center error

Dear All,

We are encountering a weird issue in when KO88 is executed. Please share your inputs at the earliest.

The same scenario with same GL Accounts was executed in development client , we don't have any issue.

KO88 Error “Field Cost Ctr is a required field for G/L account LXMC 453600”

Description
SAP QA Client RemarksInternal OrderC2017-10Order TypeZAP3CIP GL Acct 1170000C.Center “OptionalField Status GroupZ100P&L Acct853600Field Status Group1007C.Center “Required”KO88 Failure

KO88 Error

Field Cost Ctr is a required field for G/L account 1200 853600\

Message No. F5808

Diagnosis

The value for field "Cost Ctr" in the interface to Financial Accounting is an initial value but you are required to make an entry in the field selection for G/L account "853600" in company code 1200" linked to the field selection for posting key "50".

System Response

Error

Procedure

It might be an error in the configuration of the G/L account field selection. The initial application, used to call up the interface must otherwise define a value for field "Cost Ctr". If this is the case, contact the consultant responsible for the application used to call up the interface or get in contact with SAP directly.

Thanks

Sanjai

    Hi Sanil,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have checked in Dev and QA -

    both (Dev & QA) has C.Center as required field for the given P&L GL Acct

    both (Dev &QA) has C.Center as optional field in the posting key 50

    Not sure why we are getting KO88 error in QA and successfull in Dev , very weird to me.

    Regards,

    Sanjai

    • Hi

      Please also compare the cost center master data in both the system. Check if the maintainance of kind of postings in Dev and QA are exactly same under the control data tab of cost center master.

      Thanks & regards

    Hi

    The message says for itself. The cost center is a required field. You need to check the field status of the GL Account in T Code OBC4 and for the posting key 50 in T Code OB41. In one of the places, the posting key is a mandatory field. There could be a difference in field status in your current client and dev system, due to which you are not getting the error in Dev System

    regards

    Hi Sanjay,

    Check the Automatic Account Assignment (OKB9) settings, in Dev server, automatic cost center might be assigned to the respective Cost element, where it is not maintained in QA.

    Thanks and Regards

    Sudhakar - I checked okb9 as well but both are Dev & QA are in sync with OKB9 , we didn't maintain any account assignments in OKB9.

    Let me know if you any other thoughts.

      Hi Sanjay,

      when cost center is a required entry for a G/L account, Cost center has to be key in at the time of posting. When settlement is executed, system checks the automatic assignment cost object, since manual entry of Cost center is not possible.

      If it is not maintained in OKB9, Kindly check cost element master data, where we can maintain default Cost Center, under "Default Acc Assignment" tab.

    Dear Sanjai,

    Check the Cost Center in the Field Status Group assigned to your G/L account at OBC4 t.code.

    Best regards,
