3198039 - Cost Center in Foreign Currency Remeasurement Run


You have executed a Foreign Currency Remeasurement run (for Payables, Receivables or Cash) and noticed that the system only shows Profit Center and/or Segment for Journal Entries. You would like to also see the corresponding Cost Center.


SAP Business ByDesign.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Payables work center. (or Receivables or Payment Management)
  2. Go to Foreign Currency Remeasurement Runs view.
  3. Open the log of any run.
  4. Go to Postings tab.

In the 'Accounts' or in the 'Journal Entries' subtab, you see that the system displays columns/fields for Profit Center and Segment, but not for Cost Center.


The foreign currency remeasurement run remeasures balances of balance sheet accounts, which usually cannot have cost center assigned. For example, the foreign currency remeasurement run for Payables/Receivables/Cash remeasures the balances of the Payables/Receivables/Cash G/L Accounts, which would have account type as Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable or Cash.


This is the expected system behavior, since cost centers can only be assigned to G/L Accounts for cost and expenses.
