    The cost element is specific to each service line. The same field at purchasing level on the operation is set to display only and will be blank. On older releases it is possible that cost element is maintained only at operation level. In that case system will not allow entry of cost element on the service lines.

    Default cost element is set for the relevant external procurement profile, Customizing is:

    > Maintenance and Service Orders > Functions and Settings for Order Types > Create Default Value Profiles for External Procurement

    See note [1403505|] which is relevant if you change the control keyand also the related notes mentioned there.
