Profit Center should not change after copying from Template

Hi,

I have a scenario wherein there is an operative project which has a profit center maintained at the project definition level. I copy the WBS structure on to the 2nd level from a template which has a different profit center maintained at the WBS level. My requirement is that the profit center maintained in the template should remain as it is after i copy the template to the operative project.

As of now after copying the template the profit center changes to the one maintained at the project definition level after i save the operative project. Is there a way by which i can restrict the system from copying the profit center maintained at the project definition level to the 2nd level WBS (which is copied from the template)?

Regards,

Gokul

    Hi,

    Please try putting some substitution rule for level 2 WBS Element profit centre, but you can not copy form template where as with some other parameters you could default it (for example project type).

    Tnx.

    See this Note 841694 - Project creation: Copying from template, it addresses the same issue i.e., which data to be used from project or template, but unfortunately this for project creation from AR. Read the 3rd section of the note.

      Hi Mohamed,

      Thanks for your response but i already checked that note and it seems that it doesn't cater to my requirement. Presently i am checking with my ABAPer if we can use some user exit and get this done which i think will require considerable amount of time. In case you have any other suggestions please suggest.

      @ Abdul Khader : - I already tried all the possibilities using substitution. Would appreciate if you could suggest something else.

      Regards,
