You can view the cost center validity by following the steps:

  1. Go to the Organizational Management work center.
  2. Go to the Edit Org Structures view.
  3. Set the Effective from date as DD.MM.YYYY.
  4. Highlight the Org Unit.

You need to maintain the correct Valid From/To in the New Fixed Asset to view the all cost centers.
