Account-based COPA and having Cost Center as Real Object in Sales Order



We have recently activated account-based COPA and in our SO, we realized the Profitability Segment being populated- that is not a problem in normal scenarios.

However, in some cases, we would like to charge to a cost center instead of COPA. We have tried the 2 ways mentioned in the forum/on the web to include Cost Center in Sales Order:

1. Go to OVF3 t-code and configure a default cost center for the order reason

2. Change the SD Document Category under 'Define Sales Document Types' to 'I- Order w/o charge'.

However both ways only open the Cost center field but still populates the COPA. At accounting entries, cost center will become a statistical object and COPA, the real object- which is not what we want.

Is there a way to stop the auto-populating of Profitabiltiy Segment in SO when cost center is being entered?

Thanks very much in advance for any suggestions.
