Balance Field "Profit Center" not filled

Dear All,

I have created a Po with subcontracting item category L and Account assignment M. I successfully completed MIGO. While creating MIRO, I enter all the details,  calculate tax and when I simulate, I see an extra G/L account being determined. This account is for Subcontracting Charges.

My questions:

1. Before we use to create Po of subcontracting item category L without Account assignment M, during MIRO the extra G/L account of subcontracting was not determined. Only there was an account of GR/IR Clearing A/C.

2. Why is it getting determined?

3. Can I assign Profit center to G/L Account.

for simulation of Subcontracting charges check the GL assignment in OBYC with respective mvt type-account modifier key. However if there is any difference in clearing account value and MIRO value (payable to vendor amount) it should go to relevant expense GL.

for Profit center error check the document spliting status and cost element status of GL with FICO person. If document spliting is active and GL is defined as cost element - either delete the cost element of that GL if not entry posted yet or assign default cost center for each profit center for that GL in OB09.

Normally profit center error occur when system find 2 different Profit center or business area in document but unable to determine the right profit center.

As you are doing MIRO for subcontract PO and have problems with Subcontracting Charges Account , then cross check and compare both   Accounts (Vendor Account and Subcontracting Charges Account ).May be profit center field or some field optional in G/L account and the same field may suppressed for other G/L account .( 1st find field status group for each G/L account in FS00 and check in OBC4 t.code for both in each case)

Also have look on SAP note: 372251, 995055, 1151484 and 995055
