Cost Center

Hey SAP Gurus,

In the material accounts and inventory account they require an CO object, so we go to Fs00 for the account and a sign a cost center.

We are using the same chart of accounts and the same account lists in the two different company codes. but this cost center which is assigned to one company code, shows up as the CO object in the other company code.

Please help, how you can have different CO objects for these accounts.

Thank you

P.

Hi,

In GL account you cannot assign a Cost Center. However, in CO you can assign a default Cost object for a Cost Element (for each Company Code) in transaction code OKB9.

Thanks

Hi,

There is a basic issue here. Why would you like to have a cost center on any material or inventory accounts? Use Field status variant like G006 (material accounts) or G025. You never hold material / inventory accounts at cost center level, but at the profit center level. It will be derived by the system based on the MM mster data. Does this help??

Hi,

You must have put the cost center when you have created the gl account as cost element using the transaction FS00. Take the Cost center out from the cost element , because you are creating a cost element at a controlling area level and which is assigned to all the the company codes. Go to Transaction OKB9 and create for each gl account and company code combination a default cost center.

Thanks
