Dealing with dummy profit center

Dear Experts,

I would like tofind out how do we ensure (or make) the profit center during invoice posting is 'blank' to balance sheet GL account instead of dummy profit center. Currently, our balance sheet GL account that contain WBS number will have dummy profit center. I have tried to remove using substitution but everytime document is posted, the dummy profit center will supersede my substitution rule.

The reason I would like to remove this dummy profit center in balance sheet GL account is because, there are instances when we perform GL open item clearing, the exchange gain/loss will have dummy profit center. Most probably the balance sheet open item contain dummy profit center. Note that we have defaulted another profit center in FAGL3KEH but the dummy profit center will override the default value.

Looks like the profit center in Master Data is more priority than the substitution rule. Also, defaulted profit center value in FAGL3KEH will not override dummy profit center in a document.

I am looking for a solution. Please assist. Thanks.

Regards

Fauzi

    Hi,

    Derivation is only useful for P&L and balance sheet accounts in cases where the profit center cannot be derived or specified.

    Default profit center is derived under the following conditions:

    1.No profit center is specified in the posting

    2.A profit center cannot be derived from the cost element (such as on the basis of the cost center or the order or WBS)

    Please check wbs element.If you created balance sheet account as a cost element then profit center will derive from account assignment object.

    Hi,

    With PCA activated you cannot post a document with 'blank' profit centre.

    Dear All,

    I managed to find OSS 'Note 102737 Profit Center Substitution does not work' and therefore, explain why my substituion between dummy (derived from WBS) with another profit center does not work.

    Can I use user exit instead? Will user exit help me in this scenario?

    Is there any user exit that I can used as reference?

    Or if I cannot change using substitution, I cannot change using user exit?

    Thanks.

    Regards
