mapping of cost center to G/L accounts

Hello ,

I have one discount G/L which is added in the Sales pricing condition . When sales invoice is generated , the system throws an error as discount g/L requires CO object.

In OKB9, we can do the setting . But the scenario here is they have only one Business area and one plant only . but they want to map cost centers based on Materials and not based on business area .

So let me know whether we can assign many cost centers to one G/L account automatically . I mean is there any way wherein cost centers can be mapped as per the materials and when the invoice is generated the g/L accounts should go to the appropraiate cost center with respect to the material.

thanks

    Hi muscan,

    Please use the account assignment rule 3 Profit center is mandatory in the transaction OKB9 and assign the cost centers against the profit center.

    Use the profit center from the material.

    Please clarify this, does it mean that the cost center depend on the material? coz in OKB9 you can only assign based on GL account but not on material.

    But this is a Discount right? then it must have Cost Element Category 12 which is sales deductions.... please check your account.

    then should it flow to PSG or not? if yes default this to PSG in OKB9

    The solution for this issue was to have the profit center and cost center mapped in OKB9. But for that i have to select ccost element category 12 for the discount G/L account
