Hi Experts,

Am having an Issue Related to Import Purchase order, During Invoice verification (MIRO) am getting error.

Create account 5030000, 5035011 and 5030001 for 18.05.2011 as a cost element in controlling area1000

Message no. KI280


Account 5030000 is a profit and loss account. You assigned it to an object in cost accounting (for example, a cost center, order, or project).

System Response

Account 5030000 in the determined controlling area 1000 must exist as

cost element on the posting date 18.05.2011.


o Create account 5030000 as a cost element and then repeat your


Or, delete auxiliary account assignment to objects in cost


These 3 GLu2019s can not be created as Cost Element Because these (Purchase account, Purchase Offset Account and Price Difference account ) which are assigned in OBYC for Account Key EIN, EKG and PRD account.

In the Purchase order fixed exchange rate is not ticked and I have maintained the GL code for KDM (Materials management exch.rate diffs) Account KEY which is not a cost element too..

If the GRN and IR created on same date we are not facing ANY ERROR. But these POu2019s GRN happened last month and IR will be done this month. Please guide

    You will have to maintain 5030000 and others as a cost element through KA01 with category 1 or 11 as needed,and then go to OKB9 and assign that cost element with cost object. This will resolve your issue.
