Prof.segment for prim.cost elements not advisable for costing-based CO-PA


Dear All,

We have activated Costing Based COPA. We are getting below error at the time of Releasing Billing Doc to Accounting

"Prof.segment for prim.cost elements not advisable for costing-based CO-PA"

I checked the GL Account there are three GL accounts One is for Sales Commission, Loading Unloading and Other one is for Delivery Charges (Direct) both are having Cost Element Category as 1.

I do understand that cost elemnt Category 1 is not allowed for CBC. Please advise me on the following:

1. Shall I change the Cost Element catefory to 12 for Sales Commison ?

2. If I create Cost Element Category 12 for Loading Unloading & Delivery Charges (Direct) the how these will be used from MM

point of view because if we use same GL Account for SD and MM

3. Is it advisable to use different GL Account for MM and SD.

Please advise what should I do?

Br, Vivek
