Profit Center Field not changeable in AS02

0 Kudos


In AS02, I would like to change the field ANLZ-KOSTL (Cost Center) field in time dependant tab, if the Profit Center of the CC is different from the PC of the asset master, I got the error message that the Profit center is not unique.

But the Profit Center field is grey so can not be changed.

I checked the field status of the master and the status of PRCTR is optional.

Could anyone tell me why this field is only displayed against any modification in AS02 ?

I know the error message can be swiched off by OBA5 but this is not an option.

For information, with new ledger accounting, Profit Center is activated as assignment objets.

Time-independent organizional units(XZORG) are not activated.

Thanks for your help.

Check the settings( particularly used in balance sheet) for profit center in "Additional Account Assignement objects ->activate account assignment objects setttings in SPRO, asset accounting.

Usually if segment reporting is active and asset is already capitalized, system wont allow to change the profit center in asset master data.

Usually profit centre of the asset master derived from its cost centre or order. So in your case you have to use the cost centre which should have same profit centre. Otherwise it throws error.
