ERROR Field Cost Ctr is a required field for G/L account TN 401130

I get this error when I try to bill a sales document, where do I maintain this setting. I assigned the Account Assigment Group to GL account via transaction VKOA. The AAG si then assigned to the masterial in the sales views. I still get the error of the cost centee field being missing. the setting is not in OKB9, I checked. Check error message from SAP below when I try to release document to Accounting.

Field Cost Ctr is a required field for G/L account TN 401130

Message no. F5808

Diagnosis

The value for field "Cost 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 "401130" in company code "TN" linked to the field selection for posting key "50".

Procedure

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 "Cost 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.

    Hi

    Open GL account master data in FS00 - check the field status group assigned under create/bank/interest tab - double click on it see the attributes of field status group - check under addition account assignments cost center field is defined as mandatory. Check with your FI consultant -if it is not required then make it optional.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    This is because in the FIELD STATUS of the GL account , the cost centre would have marked as REQUIRED entry.

    Goto the Transaction code FS00 and in the Create bank/Interest Tab select the Field status group and double click on it and it

    will lead you to the Feidl status variant configuration where you can find the ADDITIONAL ACCOUNT ASSIGNMENT group,

    Double click on it and it will lead to the selection where you can set the COST CENTRE as Optional entry.

    This configuration directly you can do in OBC4 transaction code

    Path: IMG ->FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING ->PREPARATIONS OF CONSOLIDATIONS ->FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING ->MAINTAIN FIELD STATUS GROUP FOR YOUR GL ACCOUNTS.

    Hope it is clear,

    santosh
