Account requires an assignment to a CO object error

Hi,

Let me tell before hand that I know OKB9 account assignment and assignment of cost center/internal order in the Cost element. Either of these is not the answer I'm looking for.

Business is trying to post delivery in SD. Out of 20 part numbers under a single delivery, particular 3 part numbers got stuck and did not post. They throw an error stating Account S821110000 requires an assignment to a CO object. All other part numbers have passed through successfully.

This account is not a new account and used by business since 1999. Can you please let know what could be the reason for this?

Please don't suggest OKB9 and assignment of cost center in the cost element, since that is not to be done since the account is in use for more than 10yrs and is correct.

Thanks,

Prithwiraj.

    HI,

    Did you check for which GL account you are getting the above error.

    Also check the Field status group in the GL Master - FS00 whether profit centre has been made a required field for income postings.

    or

    You must have made a cost element for the GL account whereby it makes it mandatory to have a Cost object i.e. ( cost centre / profit centre)

    Please check

    Regards

    Hi

    I feel Murali's suggestion is really valid, however you can also check if you are using substitutions rules in which, maybe the pre-requisites are not met for the affected line items to substitute the CO Object during delivery.

    Further what is the nature of the GL account and where do you expect it to be posted to - IO, CC, WBS or PSG etc

    Regards

    Hi

    1. You should check which CC or CO object the GLs used to get posted to. Check FBl3N for the same. Then you should check how these objects were derived

    2. Possible ways of deriving this are

    a. OKB9

    b. KA02 (CC in Cost ele master)

    c. OVF3 assignment

    d. Substitution (OBBH / OKC9)

    e. Any account assignment in the sales order itself

    One of these 5 would have been there earlier and there seems some change now.. You can analyze on these lines
