Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Liquidity Management work center
  2. Click on New Bank Statements under common tasks
  3. Enter the mandatory fields in Step 1: Enter General Data
  4. Click on Next and navigate to Step 3: Create and Edit Items
  5. Click on Add Row and enter Payment Method: Outgoing Bank Statement and enter the Debit Amount
  6. The Further Processing status now changes to Required
  7. Click on Required and you get navigated to a new screen: Bank Statement: XX/X
  8. Navigate to tab: Allocation to G/L Account
  9. Click on Add Row
  10. You enter G/L Account and the Cost Center but system gives the error messages:

Type is ACC but component COST_CENTRE_ID is filled

Type is ACC but component COST_CENTRE_UUID-CONTENT is filled


The Account Assignment Type is selected as ACC - General Ledger Account only and the system expects you to enter only G/L Account field and not the Cost Center field. If you want to enter Cost Center the Account Assignment Type must be selected to CC - Cost Center.


You see that the Account Assignment Type is set to ACC - General Ledger Account only. You have to change this to CC - Cost Center and the system now lets you proceed further.

Sometimes, Account Assignment Type is a hidden field. In that case:

  1. Go to Personalize -> This Screen
  2. Select the section Untitled Table and add the field: Account Assignment Type.
  3. Save the changes.
