Error message in down payment on asset purchase order



While i am trying to make down payment request with reference to PO have asset number it is return an error message

*Store a cost element for credit down payments

Message no. KI165


You posted a payment to a CO-relevant object (cost center, order, and so

on). The payment is therefore recorded in CO.

If a payment has no order reference, no consumption account can be

derived. Therefore, CO posts the payment under a default cost element

created and stored during Customizing.

You have not yet maintained this default in the system.


Maintain the default cost and revenue elements in the Implementation

Guide under "Project System" for controlling area CA00.*

I don`t know what is the reason for using this cost element and which type of cost elements that i can use in this issue....

We are not use Down payment clearing account, because Our customer don`t need this account..

Please help me ASAP

Thanks for your cooperation
