Error in Posting Travel Costs to FI/CO

Hi Friends ,

I am working on a Business scenario on "Project with Resource Related Intercompany Billing". As a part of this scenario, one has to do time booking & travel expenses booking ( in CAT2) of a cross company employee. Then the time is transferred to the Project (CAT5) & Trip is Settled(PR05).


While posting the "Travel Costs to FI/CO" (PRRW) for this cross company employee it is showing a message " A Unique Company Code has not been assigned to company number XXXXX" .

However, we checked that the assignment of Company Code & Company which are all OK. Can you please help on the issue.

    When you are putting a cross company code transactions, make sure that

    you have created a company by using OX15

    you have assigned both the company codes to the same company by using OX16

    In addition, you can go through the following to get an idea on cross-company code postings in FI

    You can post the cross company code postings even between two controlling areas. The system does not prevent to post documents between two company codes in two controlling area. Need not necessarily they should be under one operating concern. Provided you have to make sure that you have followed the following points:

    In OBY6 - To company codes must be assigned to same Company, meaning that you mus thave created a Company and that company must have been assigned to these two company codes.

    OBYA - You should maintain the clearing accounts in both the company codes. Meaning that you are posting one leg in one company code and the other leg in the other company. Therefore, it is required to have the missing legs in each company code.

    Company Code1 - Posting Key 40 - Clearing Account

    Company Code1 - Posting Key 50 - Clearing Account

    Company Code2 - Positng Key 40 - Clearing Account

    Company Code2 - Posting Key 50 - Clearing Account

    OB08 - In case if the two company codes have different local (company code) currencies, you may maintain the exchange rates.

    You can now go to F-02 and post a cross company code transaction giving the first leg in first company code and the second leg in second company code. Missing leg in the first company code will be posted to the GL Account mentioned in OBYA and the missing leg in the second company code will be posted to the GL Account mentioned in OBYA. That means you will have four line items overall.

    The system will post three document.

    Document 1 in First Company Code

    Document 2 in Second Company Code


    Document3 - Cross Company Code Document.

    The cross company code document consists of the first company code document number plus company code plus last two digits of the fiscal year.

    Hope this must have clarified your doubts.

    Please let me know in case if you need further details.
