Two Cost Element for the same GL

Hi,

We have 2 Company Codes - 1000 & 2000. We are using same CoA in both the Company Codes. We have a GL, say 12345678 for posting short/excess amount. So during MIRO, the accounting entry would be:

GR/IR a/c dr. 10,000

GL 12345678 2

Vendor 10,002

GL 12345678 would be dr or Cr would depend on short/excess amount.

We have created Cost Element for this GL 12345678. If I post the MIRO without attaching a Cost Center to this Cost Element system thows an error to attach the Cost Center. I have separate Cost Center for Company Codes 1000 & 2000 however I can only put one Cost Center in this Cost Element.

Can anyone advice how can I post the above mentioned entry with different Cost Center. This line item (GL 12345678) is generated automatically and the Cost Center field is greyed out hence I don't have option to enter the Cost Center during MIRO. I checked the FSG of this GL, Cost Center field is 'Optional' over there.

Thanks,

Sandy

    Hi,

    Assign the cost centers to your respective Cost elements in OKB9 T.code. by this when ever posting is done to the cost elements automatic postings will be done in the respective cost elements. Do not assgin cost center in the cost element master record by this Posting will be restricted to one single cost center.

    Thanks
