    If you want to enter the cost center manually, activate it on the screen by adding the next code:

    User exit: MV45AFZB

    Form: userexit_cobl_send_item

    int_coblf-fdnam = 'KOSTL'.

    int_coblf-output = '1'.

    int_coblf-input = '1'.

    APPEND int_coblf.

    R.

    The Cost Center Determination settings is in OVF3 - but there are some cases where the Cost Center must be exceptionally changed.

    If the document category for order type in IMG VOV8 is defined to be "I" which belong to order type FD - Deliv.Free of Charge, then the field cost center is active for input during transaction VA01.

    Alternatively, you can specify an order reason and assign a cost center to an order reason.

    However the standard SAP works only at the header level though, so it would not work if cost center is needed on the line item.

    The cost center are assign for such business transactions as :

    - Free deliveries

    - Returns

    - Deliveries of advertising materials

    You can also make cost center allocation dependent on the order reason, for example:

    Order reason: Damage in transit

    Order reason: Free sample

    Both the IMG settings are done in transaction OVF3, either with/without the order reason.

    Ramaraju,

    1. The Configuration has to be carried out at IMG --> SD --> BF --> Account Assignment/Costing --> Assign Cost Centers

    In this you need to assign Sales Area, order reason, Cost center and Business Area.

    2. Account determination needs to be determined for cost centers.

    3. This Assignment of cost centers to the orders depends on various scenarios. The Documents used for these type of scenarios have sales document category = I -Order W/o Charge

    a. Free goods

    b. Returns

    c. Deliveries of Advertising materials

    4. You can also make cost center allocation dependent on the order Reasons

    a. Damage in Transit

    b. Free Sample

    Regards

    Sathya
