CO object assignment

Former Member

Hi All,

When I do asset retirement - ABAVN / ABAON, SAP will create the journal including the P&L account (such as gain/loss or disposal account)

The question is, the CO object for this account is always blank, cannot be derived from asset master data (cost center)

I've tried to use substitution but it's not working, please anyone could help me ?

Please have a look on the following tips to solve this issue:

1. Check the settings in the following customizing

SPRO -> Asset Accounting -> Integration with the General Ledger -> Additional Account Assignement Objects

In there you must find CO object (f.w.Cost Center / Internal Orders as ACTIVE

2. All asset masters must have defined a cost center / internal order) in table ANLZ.

You can check this information by trx. SE16.

3. In "field status group" of account assignment, CO object must be optional.

To check this information, you can go to trx. AS02, double click on account determination, then select tab "Create/bank/interest".

4. Check if you have set additional cost center determination by trx. OKB9 that can be affecting the "cost center" derivation.

5. If company code has been defined as "Balances by Business Areas", then Cost Center won't be derivated from Asset Master.

6. Please verify the settings of:

SPRO -> Asset Accounting -> Integration with the General Ledger ->

Additional Account Assignment Objects ->

Specify Acct Assignment Types for Acct Assignment Objects

There for your company code, for all transactions (*) cost center must

be active, so it will be derivated from Asset Master.

To copy cost center from asset master.. we have to follow these steps..

1.Check asset master was tagged to cost center

2.First create Asset sale clearing account, profit and sale of assets needs to be created as cost element by assigning 01 as cost center category.

3.Check field status of above GL Accounts... make optional for those Field status group (Asset with retirment, Cost Center and Profit Center)

4.Assign above cost elements under OKB9 settings..

Hope it will works..
