Dummy Profit Center in New GL



we activated New GL with Segment Balancing. The P&L accounts will get the profit Center from the cost objects. We have defined a default segment in the constant for unassigned process, and we only have zero balancing at the segment, and not the profit center. This is a business requirement.

However, I am not sure how to cover the scenario where there might be no profit center in the cost center master or the material master or any other scenarios. I have tried configuring the default profit center in FAGL3KEH. but when I tested, the document splitting is not working correctly. SAP recommends not using default profit center if document splitting is activated.

I wanted to see if dummy PCTR is an option. I have read in the SAP library, but they do not explain clearly about the dummy PCTR. It says activating dummy PCTR is optional, but do not give a good alternative option. They say we can activate balancing by PCTR, but that is not our requirement. Also, if we assign a default PCTR in the non assigned process, it will apply for the balance sheet accounts as well, which we do not want.

I am not sure what are the other options. Please suggest if there are any other options. Also SAP does not mention if we activate dummy profit center from the New GL side (not through the classic PCA menu path), does it still activate the Classic PCA tables?

Please let me know.
