Cost Center in Balance Sheet G/L A/c.(Cost Elem. Cat. 90) during Doc. Split

Former Member

We are on ECC 6.0. We have a requirement where we want to have Cost Center being populated in Balance Sheet account (Cost Element Category 90) during document splitting. Following is an example

Post.Key G/L Account Amount Profit Center Cost Center

40 Exp. Account 400 1234 1234

40 Exp. Account 700 1211 1111

50 B/S Account -400 1234

50 B/S Account -700 1211

When we see the G/L account Simulation we see the above screen, however, in expert mode we see the cost center being populated? Is there any way to get cost center in the Balance Sheet G/L.

We have defined Profit Center as Document Splitting characteristics for G/L accounting.

We have defined Cost Center as Document Splitting characteristics for Controlling.

Is there any thing else we need to do to achieve our desired result?

Hi Chintan,

I agree with anup. Please note that ele cat 90 is used for asset acquisition account. Also please make sure that asset is having cost center as a compulsory field. This u have to do in asset master data field status in asset accounting.

Please check the field status of all the Asset reconciliation accounts. Cost center, profit center should be optional there.
