Former Member

Dear Experts,

I received this message, "An entry in field Cost center is not permitted for account 400000" when I tried to do the following GL entries.

posting key 50 : 270000 Other payables MYR10000

posting key 40 : 400000 Salaries MYR6000 Cost Center : 1100 Production

posting key 40 : 400000 Salaries MYR4000 Cost Center : 1200 Administration

Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

Regards,

Abraham

Hi ,

Have you created a primary cost element for GL Account 4000000.

If not please create a Cost Element for GL in transaction KA01...

It will solve your issue..

Hi

This msg can come only if

1. Your GL is not a cost ele

2. You are making this posting in a non leading ledger...

Could it be related to field status group at the GL account master? I read in other article saying that it is due to the "additional account assignment" is suppressed.

by the way, I have one leading ledger I guess, as this is a new company code and chart of account created.

the cost center is suppressed in "additional account assignment" section the field status group.

Hi

Check your field status group in OBC4 for GL accounts and OB41 For posting keys

I already set the posting key 40 and 50 with the "cost center" account assignment to "optional" but the problem still the same.

But when I double-click at the field status group in GL account maintenance for GL account 400000, it shows the cost center is still suppressed, even though I've set it optional at OB41.

However, the G013 field status group was chosen at the GL account maintenance. But I couldn't find where to set this FSG is located or rather to edit.

Do you know where?

Please go to Transaction Code FS00 and see under control tab. Execute FS00 for the said GL account and assign the correct FSG there.

Hi,

I chosen G004 "cost account" field status group, then it works.

But I just wonder where to edit this field status group..

Hi,

Once you go into OBC4.............this will show you list of Field Status Group. Now click on the respective Field Status Group.........Double click on Additional Account Assignment Tab...................then select optional/Req.entry .

Finally, I managed to edit the FSG.. it was that I kept on trying to double-clicking on the Field status variant, instead of Field status group.

Thanks Jaydip, and also Ajay and the rest as well..
