    Check the validity period of your cost element. If it is valid , then it is created under category primary cost element and not locked for postings.

    Hi Raghav,

    • yes, you have to check validity period which we maintain in cost element master data.

    • And if you don't want to assign any auxiliary account to any particular item you can do it using Tcode OME9 . You can supress the cost object.

    • But i would suggest that if you are using consumptoin account you must create as cost element account.

    If not solved let me know.

    Regards,
