Field Cost ctr is a required field for G/L account

Hello,

When posting an SD invoice I get the following message:

Field Cost ctr is a required field for G/L account xxxx xxxxx

No FI posting could be made due to the reported error.

The G/L account used has a field status group in which cost center is a required field. In OKB9 a cost center is maintained for the corresponding cost element, but I still get this error message.

We really need a cost center entry when posting to this G/L account, so changing the field status group isn't a solution.

Does anyone know how to solve this?

hi,

See for all Cost Elements in that invoice whether Cost Center is maintained or not.

That's it.

Hi,

I checked it, and all cost elements are maintained in OKB9.

I changed the field status group of one of these accounts into one with cost center required, and also get the error referring to this account:

The value for field "Cost ctr" in the interface to Financial Accounting

is an initial value but you are required to make an entry in the field

selection for G/L account "xxxxxx" in company code "xxxx" linked to the

field selection for posting key "50".

Do you have another idea?

hi Johan,

pls. check the field status of the posting key (50) as well. You can do that in OB41.

hope this helps

Hi Johan,

Field Status can be managed throgh OB41 and OBC4 for GL entry. In your case your have mentioned Cost Center as Required in OBC4 and Optional in OB41(posting Key) which is a Error!

both should be optional.

Now go to OB41 and select posting key 50 and select Cost Center as Optional. This will surely solove your problem.
