    Although i am not CO expert , please check with your FICO consultant who are expert before make the final call.

    During settlement to a G/L account or a fixed asset, the system ignores additional account assignments that were manually specified in the distribution rule.

    Based on what i know .

    you can stipulate that settlement may be made to cost centers and orders, but not to fixed assets.

    The Settlement profile is something that you need to create a settlement rule to settle the actual costs of a sender object.

    About the Settlement rule is something that contains the distribution rules for the sender. It will define how the way to settle the cost.

    Allocation Structure

    In the settlement structure you combine the primary and secondary cost elements into groups, in which debits are then posted to the sender objects. For each group, you specify whether (for settlement to a given receiver type) settlement is performed

    by cost element or using a settlement cost element.

    For example, you might use settlement cost elements:

    To document the purpose of an order (such as, repairs or maintenance)

    To reduce data volumes (you can combine a number of debit cost elements

    under one settlement cost element).
