Error when posting inventory differences

We receive an error when trying to post an inventory difference with MI07. The error message is "Account xxxxxx requires an assignment to a CO object" (SAP message KI235). I've looked at the account, which is a cost element, using KA02 and there is a default cost center entered on the default account assignment tab. Our issue is that we have multiple plants with inventory. The default cost center is for plant 1 but we are trying to post an inventory difference for plant 2. We shouldn't have to change the default cost center in KA02 everytime we post an inventory difference to plant 2. What configuration change do I need to make so I can post inventory differences to both plants without having to change the default cost center for the cost element? Both plants reside in the same controlling area but the cost centers are different.

    Maintain default Cost Center for Cost Element based on Valuation Area (Plant) in OKB9.

    Here maintain the Co. Code, Cost Element, and select Acct Assignment detail indicator as '1' i.e. Valuation area is mandatory. Now select the entry and double click on "Detail per business area/valuation area" in dialog structure and click New Entries and then specify the Valuation Area (Plant) and Default Cost Center for the Plant.
