Removing co code assignment from controlling area


Recently we created new co code with currency as USD and for this we also changed controlling area currency type from 10 to 30 for controlling reporting purpose and this is creating problem because we have a WBS elements and it contains object currency as USD and it is not the same as co code currency and while posting transactions with WBS element it is not allowing.

Now we have two options for resolving this issue

1) Removing co code AS01 assignment to controlling area (if possible) and create new conrolling area

2)Close the WBS elements where WBS element contains object currency as USD and create new WBS elements

In OSS note clearly mentioned object currency should be company code when we are chaning currency type 10 to Currency type 30

And our client want to go with option 1 and when we are trying to remove co code assignment from controlling area it is not allowing and also we checked about transaction data and master data in this company code but does not exist and still system is thrown an error and unable to delete assignment.

Could you please help for fixing this issue.

    Dear Satya,

    If it is not possible to remove the company code from the controlling area is because transaction data exists. All CO relevant postings depend on this assignment. There is NO standard transaction nor any report who could easily delete the company code form your controlling area.

    As you are working with projects please check that there is no projects assigned to company code.
