How to extend validity for Asset Recon. account cost element ?



Someone noticed this week that no internal order project vendor invoice postings are showing in cost accounting reporting for a certain Asset Reconciliation Balance Sheet GL,

though they are for some very similar GLs for which the postings transfer to cost accounting document fine.

The problem would appear to be because the cost element of the same number as the GL in question expired in 2003.

And my problem is I can't extend the validity period - this is a special category 90 cost element,

attempting to use KA01 to extend by creating with a new extended period fails on "this is a balance sheet account" or words to that


Anyone know how I can get this cost element working again - these cost elements were setup many years ago,

and nobody here can even remember how they were set up in the first place - even the users who did it in the first place!

Thanks for any help or suggestions,
