2901005 - Profit Center is not being displayed in Manage Supplier Line Items app


User is trying to filter the Profit Center in app "Manage Supplier Line Items", but even if the profit center is tied to the GL account, the field has no value.



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open "Manage Supplier Line Items" app.
  2. Add "Profit Center" to adept filter.
  3. Add your searching criteria including the "Profit Center" and Go.
  4. Even if you add the correct data, you'll not be able to get the results.


In SAP S/4HANA Cloud the system will write the Profit Center assignment to the G/L account line items only. The Profit Center is not assigned on document level, but on level of the G/L account line items.


In general there is a possibility to have further G/L account line items in such one document. In this case there can be different profit penter assignments and hence it would not be possible to have one single profit penter for the document.
The app "Manage Supplier Line Items" can only display fields with one-one relation..

If you are interested in a reporting or list of AP line items which include also the profit center assignments, there is a possibility via the app "Display Line Items in General Ledger".
In this app you can select via Supplier ID to list all Line Items related this supplier. In addition you can also use a filter by the reconciliation accounts to restrict further.
This app will show you the document including the Profit Center assignment.

Since both apps have different focus, Display Line Items in General Ledger doesn’t offer all attributes which would be needed for Financial Operations. But some essential information like Net Due Date is available.

Please note: in case of document split - for example if you have several GL line items with different Profit Centers, then you will see several lines in this app for the same document.
