Dear Experts

Our company is life since Jan 2015.

now, it's required to extract P&L by cost of sales "groups of specific cost centers", so I'm going to define and assign functional areas to design P&L using report painter. my questions are:

1- does activating and assigning functional areas to cost centers affect any other thing ?

2- how to include the old posting in the functional areas? are there any program to run?

Thanks a lot.

1. Ideally you must assign FA to CC at year start. Otherwise you may get an error, which you can convert into W in OBA5

2. You have to reclass through FI posting I.e Debit or Credit GL with FA and Credit/Debit same GL without FA

I've already changed the message class to warning in order to assign FA.

I understand that now I could get a result from FA from the next period. but, is there any negative effect on system?
