CO cost center substitution with SO order type

Hi experts,

In our implementation, we need to be able to substitute the cost center based on SO order type.

Example:

Cost element 100000 will be used to post GI sample.

If the SO order type is Z001, then it will be posted to Cost Center 1000

If the SO order type is Z002, then it will be posted to cost center 2000

Currently our customizing for validation and substitution is as follow:

- we define the validation with line item as the call up point

- in the validation, we use the particular sales organization

- in the substitution, we are using the order type as prerequisite and then write it with the above logic, that if the SO order type is z001 then it will be posted to cost center 1000 and the other way around.

But, somehow the substitution does not work.

My first guess will be that it is because there is no "Cost element" written anywhere in the logic lines.

Have someone ever done this successfully?

Please kindly suggest.

Thank you very much in advance

BR, Erwin

    Hi Erwin

    Am not clear at what stage you are trying to do this...

    Are you tryin to post COGS to different Cost centers i.e. @ PGI or you want to trigger cost center during billing??

    If you want this during PGI, i guess you will have to use exit.. Plain Substitution wont work in my opinion

      Hi Ajay,

      Yes, it is kind of a PGI, but for particular material only (example: sample).

      Whenever there is a PGI for sample, it will hit a "sample expenses" G/L Account and then it will be posted to different cost center based on the order type (differentiate between local and export sample)

      Is there a way to achieve this?

      What user exit are u referring to?

      Please kindly suggest

      Thank you very much

      BR, Erwin
