Hi Victor

While creating the chart of accounts (OB13) If you have given in controlling Integration field as automatic creation of cost elements, then the cost element will be created automatically when you create a G/L a/c which is a P/L item. If you have given manual creation of cost elements, then you have to create it manually. so plz check whether you have given manual or automatic. But if you have created a controlling area and assigned your company code to that controlling area then you cannot post to the G/L a/c which you have created as P/L without creating a Cost element for that G/L a/c as the Primary Cost Elements are the cost carrying object into Co from FI.

Plz assign me points if it helps
