3086551 - Error KI248 happens in app Post with Clearing for Ledger Group


Error KI248 happens in app Post with Clearing for Ledger Group.

"Account XXXXXXXX requires an assignment to a CO object"
"A/c & requires a revenue-based account assignment relevant to cost acctng"



Reproducing the Issue

  • Open app Post with Clearing for Ledger Group
  • Input parameters and in the line item view, click Enter.


In the case of a revenue cost element, the cost center does not suffice as an account assignment. The system needs order or profitability segment  as the real account assignment.


You should consider to use "SSCUI 102639 Manage Default Account Assignments" to make configuration for the relevant account. Tick the Profit. Segment flag on for that line. So that the profitability segment will be determined.
Please note, in the input screen of app Post with Clearing for Ledger Group, you should not enter Cost Center as assignment. Since if you do so, the configuration for SSCUI 102639 will not be triggered anymore.
