Hello Mark,

1) Is there a Business area is the asset master data or in thw cost center?

2)  Settings in your "field status groups" in your G/l accounts

Double click on the Field Status


-> G/L account no

-> Additional account assignments

   Is the Cost center suppressed?

   is the Business area suppressed?

3) Tr. OB65

If company code has been defined as "Balances by Business Areas" then Cost Center won't be derivated from Asset Master.

-> transaction OB65 -> Is   'Business area indicated? The same indicator can be set also in customizing Financial Accounting ->  Financial Accounting Global Settings-Company Code-Enter Global  Parameters -> 'Business  area fin.statement'

3) Tr. ACSET should be not relevant for your release
