      Go to VA02, input the sale order reference and execute. There double click on the line item and select the tab "Account Assignment". There you can see the field "Profit Center".

      As I said in your other thread, if you have generated subsequent documents like delivery or billing, you cannot change this for that line item. You have to close this line item by assigning "Reason for Rejection", and create a new line item but then, b4 doing this, you should have changed the profit center in material master.

      Alternatively, if you want to update in bulk, go to T.Code MASS, input "BUS2032" in Object Type and execute. There select "Sales Order Item Data" and click on "Fields".

      Select the field name "MASSVBAP-PRCTR" and execute. Either you can input the sale order references for which you would like to change or just execute.

      Now you will have a screen "New Values" on top and below the existing sale orders listed. Give the new profit center against the field "New Values" and execute.

      thanks

    The profit center is plant specific for the material and you can have different profit center in the material master plant wise.

    If you want to determine a different profit center (other than the one maintained in material master) based on order type or some other criterion, you need to define profit center substitution rules.

    Check the wiki:
