Distribute settled Internal Order to a new cost center

I have a cost center that is collecting costs for another cost center, in another company code.  We are all within the same controlling area so it is not an issue to do a distribution of costs at month end from one cost center to the other.

The question I have is this:  In order to capture and monitor some of the costs they have now opened an internal order against the first cost centre.   Naturally these costs settle each month, and against the cost center.  But the distribution does not pick them up to move the costs to the second cost center.

How can I get this internal order to distribute/settle to the second cost center?  Does it have to be within the internal order?

ie:  order  201524

Settlement to Cost Center 5700

All costs in 5700 get distributed to 61010 at the end of each month.

Now with these items settled against the internal order, they are excluded from the distribution.

Next steps are:???

Hi Ellen

When you settle the internal order, do you settle by primary cost element or using secondary cost element?

note that distribution cycle csn handle only Primary cost elements.

second point to check is you must settle the order before the distribution cycle is executed.

You can also settle the order to the end cost centre if possible
