Dear All,

I am currently testing COPA with New GL, specifically with cash differences that fall within our tolerance settings. In our system we have document splitting setup on profit center. With out COPA the split works according to the line items it is trying to clear based on profit center, however when a cost element is used that should be posted to COPA the document splitting does not happen, but it does post to COPA with one line but only with the dummy profit center that was assigned to the controlling area. Does anyone know a way around this?

What I am truely looking for is a way to have COPA line items split up based on the line items of the invoice that is being cleared. If there is a cash difference that should be written off I would like to see that split by profit center in COPA.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

    1. First of all, why did you activate EC-PCA when you are on ECC 6.0 and using New GL.. refer note 702854... This explains the same and also the steps to deactivate EC-PCA... if you deactivate it, there would remain no chance of Dummy PrCtr getting populated...

    2. Still if you want to continue with EC-PCA, there is no harm as such... Write a validation in FI (OB28) that postings to dummy prctr is not allowed.... This will stop the postings to DUmmy PrCtr

    3. If you would like to default one specific PRCTR to this GL, you can do it in FAGL3KEH, so that the same would flow to COPA as well...

      - Just wondering did you submit an OSS note and what was SAP's reply. I have this same issue two year later. Thank you for any information.
