Error in CJ40 Transaction

Dear Experts,

Need your help in sorting out the following issue.

I am trying to do cost planning using the tcode CJ40 and am following the steps mentioned below,

1) I created a cost element group in KAH1. All the cost elements have been created in the same controlling area and i have checked the validity of these cost elements.

2) I assigned this cost element group in transaction OPSB.

3) Now ,when i am executing transaction CJ40 and clicking on the Primary Costs button i am getting an error as "Group cannot be used"

I feel i have followed the right path to achieve my motive. Request you experts to kindly correct me and help me in solving this issue. I have checked whatever i could from my side.

Also would request you guys to throw some light on the concepts of "Planner Profile" and Planning Layout"

Thanks & Best Regards,

Gokul

      Dear Murali,

      Thanks for your response.Here are the answers for your questions,

      1. Make sure that the name of the cost element group is correct...

      Yes it is correct and i tried testing this scenario by creating a new cost element group with just 2 cost elements. Still i am getting the same error.

      2. When you enter CJ40, is the controlling area set to be the same as the controlling area of the cost element group? And, is the project in the same controlling area?

      Yes Murali the controlling area for both the cost element group and the project is same and i ahve verifired this. I have even checked the validity of the cost elements.

      I will send u all the requried screenshots provided you give me your address coz ur business card does not have your address. Thanks neway Murali. Waiting for a response from ur side.

      Regards,

      Gokul

      Hi Gokul,

      May I know who you solved the issue? I do have the same issue

      Group  cannot be used

      Message no. K8001

      Diagnosis

      Group  has not been created in controlling area  for the characteristic used, neither does it exist as a node within the group.

      System Response

      The SAP System rejects the row/column structure for group .
