COPA: Unable to settle Cost Element

Good Morning COPA Guru's-

I am learning COPA the hard way (no formal training) and I am having trouble with a particular Cost Element 500600 not settling to COPA. It looks like everything set-up correctly. In fact, the settings are identical in the other Co.code. Our users have attempted to settle several times with no luck.

Any ideas?

    Perhaps you can you give a little more detail on what you are trying to do. If you are settling an order to COPA then you need to assign a PA transfer structure to the settlement profile and maintain the transfer structure. This is not company code dependent, so if this is working for some company codes and not others, then I don't think this what you're refering to.

    If you are posting an FI or MM document and want the item to also post to COPA then you need to maintain a setting in t-code OKB9 for that cost element (click the profitability segment button). This is company code specific so perhaps this what you are refering to. Also, you'll need to maintain a mapping of the cost element to a value field in the PA transfer structure (structure FI), but that is not company code depending so you should already have that.

    thanks,

    I agree. If you rpovide more detail you may get a more useful specific solution.

    What kind of order or object are you trying to settle?

    What is the error message?

    Do you have only one Controlling Area for the company codes that work as well as the ones that do not?

    There may be more relevant bits of data that can be provided. Such as order or object status. REL, DLV, TECO, FNBL etc. Is there an RA key involved in the object, which may be different than the other company codes that seem to settle fine?
