Automatic change of business area in FB01

Good morning experts,

I have a problem in transaction FB01. When I simulate a document, the Business Area (BSEG-GSBER) recovers it correctly since I have it assigned a replacement rule in the OBBH.

But when I record the document, the business area is automatically changed to another that is not correct.

I found out that the GSBER field is changed in the SAPLKAIP program "BUSINESS_AREA_CHECK"

But I can not think of where to assign the value "1006" again or disable that validation. I have also verified that the EXIT "EXIT_SAPLPCRW_002" is executed but I do not know how to recover the value of the GSBER field or if that is the correct solution.

Finally I go to the FB03 and the document has been created with the business place "1000".

Please help me with this.

Thank you,

    This is correct behavior and as designed.

    In a cost element, the Bus. Area and PC are always derived from the Cost Object only. You cant change that behaviour

    You need to assign a Cost Object which belongs to the desired business area

    • You are right in what you tell me, but the client wants that according to the BSEG-BUPLA field go to the table TGSB and recover the correct Business place.

      The solution could be to not make the Business place field mandatory in the cost center configuration?.

      If so, how could you assign that field as optional?

      Thank you,

    That means in in OBY6, you have turned ON the "Business Area wise Financial Statement" option

    You need to turn it off,if it should not be mandatory

    The master data which is already created, wont be impacted i guess. But the new master data you create wont have Business Area mandatory in it

    May be you can try removing the Business Area from CC staritng next year (or) create a new CC master

    For now, use a different CC so that your Bus Area is derived correctly
