    Dear Sachhin

    Go to OT32, select the Field status group and click on blue lens. Now double click on "Additional account assignments" and see what is maintained for the field "Cost Object". Change it to Opt.entry.

    Also go to OKB9 or FS00. There click Edit Cost Element and again click on Default Acct Assgnment There maintain Cost Center required for that G/L Account.

    Hello Sachhin,

    Postings to a profit center are only statistical and does not fully

    satisfy the 'Cost Accounting Assignment' required by the system.

    This is probably why the system continues to prompt you for a (valid)

    CO object. If you are using CO-PA, the profitability segment will

    satisfy the cost accounting assignment. If you assign an internal order

    of project, etc. it will also satisfy the cost accounting assignment.

    However, if your revenue accounts are set up as cost elements, you will

    receive this error message when trying to release the billing

    document to accounting. You will need to establish a real CO object.

    If you do not want to post this revenue to any CO object, and only

    want to post to a profit center in EC-PCA, then you should not create

    the GL account as a cost element. If you do not declare this as a

    cost element, then it posts to FI and EC-PCA without the error KI235.

    Also I would recommend that you check the account assignment to make

    sure it has been set up properly in customizing. Please review

    transactions 'OKB9' or 'OKC9'.

    Here are some notes for your review:

    83702 INFO: Acct assignmt logic sales order proc. - REM

    41103 INFO: CO account assignment logic

    17939 KI235 Account requires acct.assign. rel. to cost ac

    105024 Automatic a/c assignment (OKB9) does not work

    590855 VF02: Error message KI235

    Please also check whether you have assigned a cash account determination procedure to billing type in VOFA, if so, system will try to post to cash account.

    But the cash sales accounts are not relevant for CO, then error is issued.

    Check the wheather you have maintained revenue account determination in VKOA with KOFK conditon type

    Go to VA02->item data->account assignment tab->check wheather any controlling data , costing , profit center data is being flowing or not . If it is maintained then make sure that in VKOA you have to do assignments with KOFK conditon type
