Creation of cost elements automatically

Hi,

When I selected "manual creation of cost elements" in OB13, Then we can create a group of cost elements in OKB2 followed by OKB3 and SM35.

Even I need to do same thing I when I select " automatic creation of cost elements" ??

I tried selecting " automatic creation of cost elements". and I checked in KA03 whether it had created any cost element automatically. but it didnt created any thing...

Please suggest..

    Hi,

    These are two different things. The definition in OB13 tells whether cost element will be created automatically when a new G/L is created and it falls under a setting in OKB2. While, OKB3 is used for mass creation of CO elements complied with the settings in OKB2.

    Regards,

    Eli

    You need to specify the cost element category for your P&L accounts in OKB2.
