Change of account assignment category

Hi,

My scenario is like this.

I am raising a contract with account assignment category U and Item category D.

But while creating release orders(PO) against this contract the account assignment category U is coming as non editable .

How can I make the AAC in PO changable

Regards

RD

    Dear RD,

    Further to JP answere, which is correct in its true sense, however just to elaborate further on the subject.

    As far as PR is concerned, you can make mention A/C Assig Cat "U", as the person who is making PR does not know at the time of raising PR, which A/c Assig needs to be entered. It is for the convenient of the person who is making PRs.

    However, PR is an internal document and can be changed/corrected any time during the course, before converting it to PO.

    As far as PO is concerned, this document is transmitted/forwarded to the vendor/supplier. Therefore, the information provided in PO should be confirmed information. Therefore, you are not allowed to use A/c Assig cat "U" i.e. UNKNOWN - in PO need to specify the cost center for the same.

    Hope it clarifies your query.

    Regards

      My requirement is like this.

      At the time of creation contract they don't know the exact cost center.Basically they are creating a general contract say.repairing of a/cs.As and when the requirements comes from different cost centers they will be raising the PO against this contract with their cost centers.

      Can we map this scenario in sap

      regards

    I think Account assignment category cannot be changed once purchasing document has been saved.

    you are creating Po with reference to contract , AAC in contarct will be defaulted in PO , this cannot be edited.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    If you know that you are going to use Cost Center, then why don't you use AAC as K instead of U?

    Thnx.

    Hi RD, I am just wondering whether you ever got to the bottom of this? Is it a standard behaviour that you cannot change the account assignment category on the PO when it is U in the contract and this get copied over to the PO? I have the same problem now. I tested with a non service item and the account assignment category is opened. However, it does not work with service with item category 'D'.

    Thanks

    Hello RD,

    As you explained in your question, I would suggest you two things.

    If you know that, for any particular cost center you have to create contract at the time of creation, you can directly create contract with account assignment category k (Cost center) and item category D (Service).

    And If you don't know that, for which particular cost center you have to create contract at the time of creation, you can create contract with account assignment category U (Unknown) and item category D (Service). After that also can create PO with reference to contract with same account assignment category and item category. Specify the suitable service limit in item detail. After that at the time of creating service entry sheet for this purchase order, you can enter the cost center data for each service consumption.

    Hope it will be helpful. In case any query, please let me know.

    Regards,

    Abhijeet.
