    Hi,

    Since the posting is happening in current period, that means a correct cost object is being assigned to the cost element. But please check the validity of the cost object. the time perio the cost object is valid is specified in its master record.

    If its not valid, it will not allow to post

    thanx

    Hi,

    This error means the GL account mapped in the PO requires an assignment to CO Object like it can be a cost center, profit center. IO or a project. Until they assign any of the above, the system wil ln ot be able to process the PO. The reason why the system asks for such assignment is the GL account must have been created as a cost element. If it is created as a cost element, you need to assing the CO object. Check in FS00 give the GL account and check the edit cost element tab or alternatively check through KA03 if the GL account is created as a cost element.

    ho0pe this helps
