I wish to perform allocation of costs from group of primary cost elements to single secondary cost element.
The cost center shouldn't be changed during the process.
How can I achieve this?

I think its not possible directly but we can play around. Allocate the cost element to some dummy cost center and then through distribution (giving receiver CE as your Secondary CE) bring back to Original Cost center.
Please correct if I am wrong and please check from your side also as I checked from my end...
The requirement is the cost from a group of primary cost elements to be moved to one secondary cost element with in the same cost center.
If it is yes, here the solution is....
Just use assessment cycle, where in you provide the sender and receiver as the same cost center, and obviously you need to provide the secondary cost element (with 42 category) and under the sender cost elements give the primary cost elements group.
I worked it on my system, results are positive
Thank you for your reply.
I've tried your suggestion but after the assessment cycle completed, the secondary cost element remain in balance 0 (after debit and credit line posted from the cycle).
Does the selection criteria for the tracing factor has anything to do with it?
Hi IL BILYA,
Yes, as you said I have also noticed that the Dr and Cr of secondary cost element happens, which leads to ZERO balance against that secondary cost elements since the sender and receiver cost center is same.
I don't think there will be any impact of tracing factor in this scenario.
For this issue there will be two alternatives:
2. One step solution: Create assessment cycle with two segments. In the first segment, maintain original cost center as the sender and dummy cost center as the receiver with secondary cost element (assume 1000) and in the second segment, maintain dummy cost center as the sender and original cost center as the receiver with secondary cost element (assume 1001). When you run the assessment, system first reads the 1st segment, system debits the costs to dummy cost center and credits to original cost center and when it reads the second segment, it credits dummy cost center and debits original cost center. But in this case in original cost center, we see values like Dr. primary cost element costs, Dr. 1001 secondary cost element costs and Cr. 1000 secondary cost element costs.
@ Rajneesh sir: Seniority counts
You can achieve your requirement using assessment cycle.
You create assessment cycle as below picture.
Below is allocation result screen.
Hi Big Choi,
Please see my answer to Jose earlier :

Thank you for your help.
