    Hi,

    The concept of dummy profit center is to capture the costs of the transaction where the profit center is not assigned to

    any cost center. Instead you can define a service profit center and assign in the service cost center so that all the cost are

    accumulated in the service cost center. If other profit centers are assigned to respective cost centers excepting the

    service cost center, you can manually repost the cost through KB11N. As a second option you have distribution

    cycle set for profit center for month end processing so that the service profit center will distribute the values to

    the respective receiver profit centers either with fixed amount or fixed percentage.

    firstly you cannot post to profit center directly. the profit centre is derived from other objects.

    since you want to post to a profit centre, please assign the desired service profit centre in a cost centre then use the same new cost centre in your FI postings. postings will happen to new profit centre.
