Former Member

Dear Experts,

Some person suggest that while creating COGS GL Codes in FS00 cost element should not be assigned.

According to him if this is done then COGS will flow to COPA and thus COPA profitability report will be wrong.

Can you please tell whether this correct, how ever in our system COGS a/c also maintained with cost element in FS00.

Regards,

Alok

It is wrong that while creating COGS GL Codes in FS00 cost element should not be assigned. All costs be it production or overhead should have a cost element. This is required for correct analysis and reporting in controlling.

Postings to COPA can controlled through using proper Field Status Groups (FSG). IF you supppress postings to COPA in FSG's then I dont think you can make any postings to COPA. Hence the suggestion given by you may not be true.........
