2774719 - How to Check Cost Center Assignment in Source Document Related to Inventory Difference Confirmation?


You are trying to check if a Cost center is being assigned to a Source Document.

In the Journal Entry, you see that the Source Document Type is 'Goods and Activity Confirmation' but when you navigate to Source Document ID, it opens up an Inventory Difference Confirmation.

This KBA helps you to check the Source Document from Supply Chain Management Side in detail as the Inventory Difference Confirmation does not show whether there was a Cost Center Assignment during Source Document creation.
