    Hi All,

    Thanks for your valuable reply.

    The reason why I have posted this query is.

    Cost elements are maintained in both the tables CSKA, CSKB

    Now when I goto KS06 and perform a F4 help on cost elemens it is not showing all the cost elements

    available in the table.

    What could be a reasonto this.

    When I checked the table CSKA the names for all the cost elements are not maintained.

    On KS06 it is only displaying those cost elements for which names are maintained in CSKA.

    Now how do I get all the values on KS06 or

    And when I check CSKU names are maintained there.

    Help really appreciated and rewarded.

    Regards,

    Ranjith N

    • there are primary and secondary cost elements. Primary cost elements are created from G/L accounts (with same number), secondary cost elements can be anything (but could be used inside CO only). In KA06 (not KS06) you can display secondary cost elements, for primary cost elements pls. use KA03. All cost elements (primary and secondary) are maintained in tables CSKA and CSKB.

    Thanks Eric,

    But can you help with my problem.

    Why is it that on F4 help for cost element on KS06 it is not displaying all the entries eventough the cost elements values are maintained in the table CSKA, CSKB.

    It is only displaying a couple of them.???

    • KA06 is to create secondary cost element, for display you can use KA03.

      On the other hand there could be a number of reasons why it is not displayed in KA06 (I guess you mean it is not displayed in the search help):

      -the cost element is deleted (CSKB-LOEVM = 'X') or deactivated (CSKB-DEAKT = 'X')

      -the cost element is not created for the cotrolling area you currently use (check CSKB-KOKRS)

      -the number of displayed cost elements are restricted to 500 by default

    Hi Eric,

    Yes it is not populating in the search help of KA06.

    The tables CSKA, CSKB, CSKU has records for the one which Iam looking for.
