How to populate the sales order as a cost object in cost element posting

Former Member

When posting sales to a cost element the error comes up stating Account ******** requires an assignment to a CO object.

This comes from the sales (repair) order and I would like to pass the sales order and line as a cost object.

Could someone please tell me where I would make the configuration to pass that into the accounting document?

Thank you,

Thank you Ajay,

you have solved my problem, I was able to post. Now I believe all I have to do is to set the item category to use that requirement type in Assignment of Requirement Types to Transaction in SPRO.

Thanks for you help!
