Hi!

There is no direct connection between this 2 fields. Just think about it, a cost center mostly means a department in a company, and a cost element means a type of the cost (like material purchasing, newspaper, learning cost, paper cost, etc...)

Almost every department can buy paper, newspaper, and so on...

So this 2 field meet each other only at the controlling postings: COBK and COEP tables.

I wonder if is there table which stores cost element which could be used by given cost centers. I mean that there is group of cost connected with IT department or account department. Probably IT dep. doesn't buy paper but is connected with type of costs which are not generated by account department.

Joanna

You can refer to view COVP. Here you will get the Cost Elements. ( KSTAR). For deriving the Cost Centers - u ll have to refer to the Object numbers.

The line items which refer to Cost Centers will start with

KL

.

For example Object number - KLZ001RG000566 PPIM01.

here KL is the identifier.

Z001 - Controlling Area.

RG000566 - recpective Cost Center.

You can use FM - OBJECT_IDENTIFICATION_GET for deriving the Cost Center from this Object number.

You can refer to transaction KSB1 is shows the Cost Centerwise break up of the Cost Elements.
