One plant three cost center assignment problem

Dear GURUs,

We are facing a problem while doing following activity

1. We have one warehouse (suppose 2465), which is sending material to three sales offices(2415,2416,2417) from sales office the material is dispatched to customer.

2.(Old setting)We have assigned the each sales office to each cost center & profit center is taken through material at plant.

3. (new setting) Profit center is removed from material master .

4. While sending a material from warehouse to sales office customer ,we are putting the profit center at sales order field.System automatically picking the profit center which is entered in the sales order.

5. But at same time if freight or any other condition(discount or rounding off) is put then system is picking warehouse as cost center

But we require respective sales office cost center

Note: Customer's sales office should be considered as a cost center as material will be dispached directly from warehouse to customer.

With Regards

Sandeep & Ajay

    Dear Sandeep,

    As per my understanding the system is picking the Profit center which is obviously entered manually in normal circumstances in Sales Order line item level..but some conditions like Freight and Discounts are header conditions like HD00 and apply on the whole document.

    But I am not understanding on the cost center part. Could you please elaborate the business process along with the fact that why the profit center from Material Plant/St loc level was removed.

      Dear Sir,

      The reason for removing Profit center from material level is that we are supplying material from wareouse to different sales offices. In this case we can not maintain the profit center at Warehouse level.

      With regards

      Sandeep D.
