You can use the lock indicator to lock a profit center for postings. The lock only applies to the selected time interval. If the profit center is assigned to an object that receives a posting, the system displays an error message and the data is not posted.

<b>In Active</b>

1."Inactive: Create": The profit center is not yet productive (in the active version). When you activate the profit center, it is created as an active version.

2."Inactive: Change": The profit center exists in both an active and an inactive version. When you activate the inactive profit center, this overwrites the active version, so changing it.

3."Inactive: Delete": The profit center has been marked for deletion. When you activate the profit center, it will be deleted.

If a profit center was created for a particular line of business, which was discontinued later, you could use this feature to lock the PC.
