From customer invoice... add cost ctr to only some postings?

Post by asharma » Wed Jan 26, 2011 3:51 pm

On customer invoices we are charging a 'deposit' amount via a certain pricing condition. Via standard pricing and account determination, this deposit amount is hitting a certain G/L account (e.g. 123456).

Our requirement is that on just this posting, we would like to include a cost center on the posting to account 123456. From the SD side of the equation, my only option is to add a cost center at the sales order/invoice header level, which would then be applied to ALL postings from that document. Is there a way in FI to add a cost center just to certain postings? For example, when a posting is made to G/L account 123456, look up the appropriate cost center in a Z table based on the customer on the transaction?

Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Allison

If all postings to this GL account 123456 require a cost center, change the Field Status Variant of the account to make Cost Object either Optional entry or Required Entry.

If you have a lot of postings of this type you might look at a user exit and Z table to automate the lookup process. Otherwise just educate your users to enter the appropriate cost center when creating the sales order.

If the account is a cost element try transaction OKB9 to assign a cost center to the cost element.
