Changing Profit Center in MM Master Data

Former Member

Dear Experts,

I want to change the profit center in Material Master for materials which already have valuated stock in place and Purchase orders as well. When I change it, it does not give any errors in MM02, however im not sure if it impacts open PO's and accounting.

What is the process to do so properly so that there are no inconsistencies in the acoounting data. Also is there a SAP NOTE which guides towards the proper process for doing so ?

Thanks in advance.

change  Message no. MM335 to error message in OMT4 to stop changing profit center when there is stock.

you should remove all the stock of the material before changing profit center and recreate stock once profit center is updated. I think you will have to short close PO too as EKPO table contains profit center field , which will contain profit center from previous master data. To be sure i'd suggest you test PO case in test server before taking a call.
