Postings without profit center ECC 6.00

Hi,

There are a few transactions which have been allowed by the system to be posted even without profit center.

How to

1. Prevent further postings without entering profit centers/cost centers.

2. Rectify the postings which have already been posted without profit center/cost center

Is the above because of software problem?

    Hi Aravind,

    How to

    1. Prevent further postings without entering profit centers/cost centers.

    Answer:

    While creating New G/L accounts :Make profit center and cost center mandatory at field status level. for this create the seperate field status and assign otherwise change in current field status impact the existing G/L accounts.

    For existing doc assign default cost center(in cost element master data/in OKB9) temperarily. Create CO doc with OKBA and the do reversal of FI doc. With these steps cost center report will be not effected as FI doc will be reversed automatically in cost center reverse entry will be posted.After this do not forget to delete the temprary assigned Cost center in cost element.

    2.Rectify the postings which have already been posted without profit center/cost center

    To post the profit center doc with refernce to existing FI doc use T.code 1ke8

    To post the cost center doc with reference to existing FI doc use T.code OKBA.

    Thanks,

    Neha

    Dear,

    If you are using document splitting then make profit center characteristic as mandatory and if not then make profit center field mandatory for all balance sheet account in transaction OBC4....because P&L accounts will have cost center which will in turn send document to profit center.

    Documents already posted without Profit Center, use transaction 1KE8 to transfer them....

    Hi,

    Are you using Document Splitting?

    If yes, then configure "Define Document Splitting Characteristics for General Ledger"

    Financial Accounting (New) -> General Ledger Accounting (New) -> Business Transactions -> Document Splitting -> Define Document Splitting Characteristics for General Ledger Accounting

    Else change the field status of either cost center or profit center in T-Code OBD4.

    Rectification of already posted documents wouldn't be possible as per my knowledge. Really sorry, I couldn't help you with this.

    Regards,

    Abhinav
