Error while posting payroll to FI


Hi Experts,

When I run PC00_M99_CIPE - Execute run, I got the following error:

Field Profit Ctr is a required field for G/L account CD01 100002

Message no. F5808


The value for field "Profit Ctr" in the interface to Financial Accounting is an initial value but you are required to make an entry in the field selection for G/L account "100002" in company code "CD01" linked to the field selection for posting key "50".

System Response



It might be an error in the configuration of the G/L account field selection. The initial application, used to call up the interface must otherwise define a value for field "Profit Ctr".

I know that it is possible to make profit center field option for the particular GL using T.Code OBC4 but the FI requirement is that the profit center should be mandatory for the entire GL Master Data, no entries should pass to GL without Profit Center.

I also try to link cost center to profit center but in this way only Expense related GL get the Cost Center via creating Cost Element for the respective GL. Since we are not able to create Cost Element for the Balance Sheet related GL therefore Cost Center/Profit Center related problem remain the same for the Balance Sheet related GL.

Please help so that the respective GL get either Cost Center or Profit Center.
