Dummy Profit Center in New GL

Hello Gurus,

I am going to implement Profit Center Accounting in New GL for the first time. Here I am faced with a dilemma regarding the requisite configuration.

Firstly, I am having to 'Maintain Controlling Area Settings' [OKE5]. Here I am required to input the Dummy Profit Center. Say, Dummy Profit Center is 9000.

Secondly, since 'Document Splitting' is activated and 'Profit Center' is selected as a splitting characteristics. Again a 'Profit Center' is defined as a constant. Lets say the defined constant 'Profit Center' is 9999.

Now, my confusion is:-

a) If in a line item the 'Profit Center' is not manually input, will it be filled up by 9000 (Dummy Profit Center) or 9999 (Constant Profit Center).

b) Suppose if I dont define a Dummy Profit Center, will my 'Maintain Controlling Area Settings' be complete?

c) If the option 'b' does not complete 'Maintain Controlling Area Settings' and I have to populate it with a Dummy Profit Center, then, if in the next step I dont assign the Dummy Profit Center in 3KEH, then, will only the 'Constant Profit Center' be populated in a line item with missing Profit Center?

Would be really thankful and grateful, if someone helps me to solve this confusion of mine.

Regards,

Debojit Dey

    Hi,

    a) If in a line item the 'Profit Center' is not manually input, will it be filled up by 9000 (Dummy Profit Center) or 9999 (Constant Profit Center).

    Ans: by constant profit center if your item category

    b) Suppose if I dont define a Dummy Profit Center, will my 'Maintain Controlling Area Settings' be complete?

    Ans: Controlling area is not going to be complete without dummy profit center

    c) If the option 'b' does not complete 'Maintain Controlling Area Settings' and I have to populate it with a Dummy Profit Center, then, if in the next step I dont assign the Dummy Profit Center in 3KEH, then, will only the 'Constant Profit Center' be populated in a line item with missing Profit Center?

    ans: 3keh is used not to specify the dummy profit center rather to default the fixed profit center. Eg: General Reserve Balance sheet should always pickup the corportate profit center. This u mention in 3keh. but not for dummy profit center or constant profit center.
