Petty cash Receipt entry error


Dear SAP Gurus,

When i am posting a receipt in cash journal under the cash receipt tab.(cash received from bank). I get the following error message.

Field Profit Ctr is a required field for G/L account 5000 207501500

Message no. F5808


The value for field "Profit Ctr" in the interface to Financial Accounting is an initial value but you are required to make an entry in the field selection for G/L account "207501500" in company code "5000" linked to the field selection for posting key "40".

System Response



It might be an error in the configuration of the G/L account field selection. The initial application, used to call up the interface must otherwise define a value for field "Profit Ctr". If this is the case, contact the consultant responsible for the application used to call up the interface or get in contact with SAP directly.

I have maintained the field status group for the cash in hand account as "G005" (profit center required).

I have also tried to maintain default profit center in tcode 3keh. but its not working.

(Note i am working on SAP ECC 6.0)

Awaiting your response
