Hi finance experts,

while i was trying to post a vendor invoice to certain gl account (conveyance-sales) i am getting an error after entering this particular account number as

' create account XXXXXXXXXX for dd.mm.yyyy as a cost element in controlling area ZZZ '

where

XXXXXXXXXX= gl account no conveyance-sales

ZZZ= our only controlling area ,it has same characters as our company code.

where as i am not getting this error for some other accounts like fare for travel,postage ....

what are the possible causes of error,is it something related to cost center.

thanks in advance

Hi

First of all check whether you have created cost elements for these GL accounts (travel, postage, etdc.)

If already created, the problem could be the validity period of the cost elements. Check the cost element master and see the validity period.

just go to FS00, edit the GL a/c and click the edit cost element.

If you are entering some cost object in Account line item that belongs to P&L, then system needs medium to interface to Controlling. Cost element does that job.
