How to copy Profit Center account groups to Cost Element groups

Hi experts,

Please help. I have a profit center account group already in my system. I have to create the exact cost element group.

I read in google the solution provided as follows. I did the same steps below but this did not work.

I first exported the profit ctr account group (KDH2) via export function. I saved this as a text file. Then I changed the text file and replaced BGLPCT with BCCSS, SGLPCT with SCCSS and RACCT with KSTAR. Then in KAH2, I imported this text file. The system gives messages that sets are successfully imported but when I looked for my cost element group it is not there. I am not sure what I did wrong. I did this several times but still cannot find the cost element gropu. I know SAP provide copying the other way round (meaning fr cost element grps to profit ctr account grp) but from profit ctr account grps to cost element grps?????

Can anyone please help? I would not want to explore using ABAP. Is there an easy tool to do this? If you have done this before, please provide me a solution. I need to do this asap so I appreciate your kind response!!

Thank you very much 😊

    Hi experts,

    I am just wondering if i want to download the profit center account group to be uploaded & created as cost element groups, should I do as follows?

    At KDH2 (change profit center account group), I should use Import function? change the tables & fields per what I wrote earlier Then at KAH2 (change cost element group) do a Export function? Initially, I was using Export at account grp then Import at cost element grp and that didnt work.

    Can anyone please tell me the steps to copy PCtr account group to create a new cost element group?

    Any advice appreciated very much. Please help!

    Thanks!

      Hello Rachel,

      I tried this after reading your post as it seemed theoritically correct to me and I thought that if I can make BGLPCT = BCCSS and RACCT = KSTAR in the filed exported from KDH2 and imported in in KAH2 then it should work but that didn't. But the fact is that though the look similar but the contents are not arranged in the same way because when I open the files exported from each transaction in excel they do not look similar in terms of the columns in which the data is placed.

      I think doing it in the conventional way using KAH1 would be better as you have already lost some time in thinking how it can work.

      Kind Regards // Shaubhik
