Profit center priority in the RV(Account) document

Dear All,

I have one query can you please look in to that.

If I have maintained different profit centers at all these places

1.In Material master Costing view --Profit center -1

2.In the sales order -- Profit center -2

3.In OKB9 transaction -Profit center -3

When I generate the accounting document(RV) from the invoice

Which profit center will come in to the accounting document ?

What is priority sequence of the profit center to reflect in the accounting document?

I hope you got my query

Regards,

Murali.

    Hi Murali,

    The accountng document(Document type RV) will pick up the profitcenter from the sales order only.

    I maintained as per your requirement and I tested also.It is taking from the sales order only.

    As the document itself is originated from the sales order itself.So it is taking from the sales order.

    Regards,

    Krishna.

    Dear Murali

    As you would be aware In standard, by default when you create a sale order, system will fetch Profit Center from your Material Master. If you change manually the Profit Center in sale order, RV document will consider only what is maintained in sale order. This is because, you are generating billing with reference to sale order and this billing document is only released to accounting.

    thanks

    First of all, Mr.Murali thanks for raising an interesting question due to which, I had to spend useful time and learned an useful tips.

    All these days, I was under the impression that the priority for profit center will be given from material master to sale order and I never think of the situation where if the profit center is not maintained in material master. In fact, in material master the said field is set to mandatory which I feel is a standard setting.

    Anyway, I have tested in various scenarios and following are the findings.

    Irrespective of your settings, priority will be given for Profit Center in the following sequence

    Till PGI

    - Material Master

    - Sale Order

    - Cost Center

    - Controlling Area

    Once invoiced

    - Material Master

    - Sale Order

    - Controlling Area

    Other than the above areas, even if you maintain in other areas like 3KEH, Assign Default Profit Center to Accounts, It is not at all considering these areas including OKB9 settings which is only for determining cost elements. In fact, I have tried changing "Account assignment details" to 3 but for that also, system is not considering.

    thanks

    we came to know ...

    System will pick profit center from material master to sales order.

    At sales order level we can chenge manually, same will copy to RV document.

    If sales order not have the profit center system will search settings in OKB9 transaction.

    If profit center data available in OKB9 transaction system will pick that in to the RV document.

    Regards,

    Murali.

    • As already stated, Profit Center will always pick up from material master and hence first you have to ensure that in all material masters, profit center is maintained.

      Next in the existing sale orders, check whether profit center is maintained. If not maintain manually so that there wont be any issue in FI documents later on.

      thanks
