Cost element XXXX not in the cost component structure (CK40N error)

Hello,

While doing the std cost estimate thru' CK40N, getting the error "Cost element XXXX not in the cost component structure" .

Now, I know that by adding the cost element in the cost component structure thru' OKTZ, the error can be resolved.

But, the client wants to know how come the given cost element is coming in the costing run.

I checked the Costing sheet also (this particular cost element is not present), also checked the costing variant, but could not find from where the system is picking this cost element

Please help.

regards,

wnr

    Hi,

    First check the Cost lement Catagory of that particular cost element, through you can easily find out hoe the cost element is coming....

    If it is 43 check your routing, 41 check your costing sheet...

    Thanks for the response.

    On further research I found that the cost element is primary cost element (type 01).

    It has been assigned in OBYC for GBB transaction.

    But, when I check the movement type against the material (for which this error is coming in CK40N), there is only Goods receipt.

    Then why at the time of cost estimate the system is giving error for the cost element.

    regards,
