We have some of the primery cost elements which are showing balance difference in transaction FBL3N and Balance in COVP view for same selection ( Cpmany code , Period, Fisical year & Cost element ).

Most of the cost elements are tallying with total balance in both cases only very few cost elements are difference in total.

Please help us what could be the problem and where we need to check for detailed analysis.

Hi Ravi,

The GL Account when you created you would have not created cost element immediately. Hence when there is a posting to the GL Account in FI, there is no controlling document generated for the cost element.

you would have created cost element after some documents are posted for the GL Account.

Or Controlling area is above the company code level, check for the same controlling area / Cost element there may be posting in more than one company code.

I hope this may be the case.
