Hi,

Operting concern level it is possible to set the profitability segment charterstics as mandtory and optional through KEQ3 t.code.

For GL level, we can set  profitability segment as a required or optional.Charcterstics settings are not available at GL level.

Zunaid,

You can create characteristic groups and assign it to business transactions. so in case if above GLs will be posted in different business transactions, then UPTO SOME extent you will be able to achieve this. System wont make those characteristics mandatory, but will make those characteristics only visible and ready for input when that business transaction is called.

To meet your exact requirements, you need to use enhanement, check user exit COPA0001/2

Thanks.

1. Create as many characteristic groups as the no of different options you want

2. Use exit COPA0003 and assign the respective Char group to the GL accounts in that exit... It will serve the purpose

Advisable to create a set of GL accounts from GS01 and use tthe set in the exit so that you can add or remove the GL accounts in future w/o having to change the exit code
