Cost center assignment to condition types

Hi All,

Is there a possibility to assign a cost center directly to a condition type in PO.

I have created 3 new condition types to which 3 different P&L acounts have been assigned in OBYC. Then in OKB9 cost centers have been assigned to these G/L accounts.

The client wants to know if it is possible to assign cost centers directly to condition types rather than going through G/L accounts?

Regards,

V S

    Hi V S,

    Cost Center Accounting is used to identify the costs incurred by an organization

    Cost center cannot be assigned directly to the condition types rather they can be used for cost accounting in indirect manner.

    For more information regrading cost center refer the below wiki link it may help you.

    Hi,

    Coat center cannot be assigned to condition types in the PO. There are no such fields pertaining to this requirement in PO condition type.

    hi..

    no there is no direct way to linkup both of these...

    bcz if u directly link then...whichever procedure us using that cond type have to have assign cost center,..though in every case it is not necesary that for every proces u have cost center..

    thats why..we separate cost center and cond type...and whichever process require the link...we link them through G/L account..

    hope it works

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Whatu2019s your real requirement! Condition type is pricing element which is in pricing master and Cost center or G/L account are master data in FI and linking both directly not possible, but you can link through other parameters.

    When you are creating Purchase Order with account assignment K, you need to enter cost center name and must need to enter G/L account. If a cost center has multiple cost elements, as you needed, you can enter G/L account respectively with each line item of PO individually with cost center.

    OR

    You can set default G/L account in purchase order without material master, check the link:
