Revenue Postings on profit center

Former Member

Hi All

I am trying to post a GL account which is maintained as cost element category 11. I have assigned a profit center during the posting, but i get the error that this account requires a CO object. Mesg No.KI235.

I feel that GL accounts with cost element cat.11 can be posted on a profit center without a CO object.

Is there any note that I need to apply. We are using SAP ECC 6.0 Release 603 Level 002.

You can switch off the message


Application Area KI

Message 235

You can switch off for online and batch entries.

If the entries are not available in OBA5, then switch off at OBMSG, then visit OBA5

However, if you switch off the message, CO and FI will no longer be in sync with each other.

There are three better solutions:

1. Don't create a cost element.

2. If you need it to be a cost element, create it as category 1, not 11.

3. POst the entry to a cost object with revenue enabled, a profitability segment, internal order, or WBS.
