Account assignment issue during MIGO



I am trying to do MIGO and I am getting the below error. I had assigned the cost elements in OKB9 with a default Cost Center. Still, I am getting this error. I am not sure why this is happening. I was looking some other threads and they are recommending to assign a default cost center in KA02. I feel this should not be done as the same cost element will be used by multiple Company Codes. We have activated the Purchase account for our company codes. I was testing an STO PO, I never faced an issue during MIGO. Is there anything that I am missing? Please suggest.
