Implementing FM, "Assign Controlling Area to FM Area" unavailable


This is the first time I implement FM. I have activated the following bussiness funtions, and I am following the IMG installation instructions.

One of the first steps is to assing a Controlling Area to a FM area, but this transaction is not available. It is not in Enterprise Structure --> Assingment --> Controlling. And when searching by transaction sapl0fmc, I get a message saying the transaction does not exist.

My cliente is already using FI and CO in production. I am doing this in Development.

The bussiness functions I activeted are the following:






Am I missing something?

Thank you in advance,

    FM area is not assigned to controlling area, but to company code.

      Hi, i've been reading your postiings regarding this question.

      but actually if you go to table TKA01 there is a field for FMA (FIKRS).

      now my question is, the controlling area was created by copy. and now i've created new FM area, i've assigned to company code and i have company code assigned to controlling area. but the field in this table remains the old FM area.

      do you have any idea how to update it?
