Reproducing the Issue

You have created New Org Unit as XYZ by following the below steps:

  1. Go to Organizational Management work center
  2. Open Org Structure
  3. Search with the Org Unit ID or Name as XYZ
  4. You see Org Unit created successfully as shown below


Now you follow the steps to create the New Scanned Invoice,

  1. Go to Supplier Invoicing work center
  2. Go to common Tasks & Click on New Scanned Invoice
  3. In the New Screen navigate to the Account Assignment section
  4. Enter the Account Assignment Type select Cost Center 
  5. In the Cost Center filed try to enter XYZ as value it doesn't display the Cost center details or If you try to find the XYZ from the value help also it doesn't show up the XYZ Cost Center which is created as shown below

However, your expectation is to make the Org Unit XYZ made available for the selection.


Reason for this behaviour could be as follows:

  • Correct Definitions & Functions are not assigned to the Org Unit: XYZ 
  • Inconsistencies in the Org Structure or Unit


To get the Org Unit XYZ available for selection under Account Assignment type for the cost center, please assign the respective Definitions & Functions.

In this case request you to assign the

Definitions as Cost Center


 Under Functions assign Customer Invoice & Supplier Invoicing.


This would help you to give the Cost Center XYZ for selection for the Cost Center under Account Assignment Type.


Note: If any of the Org Unit which you have created and if it is not available for the selection, please verify the assigned Definitions & Functions.

Even after performing the above changes, it is not available for the selection, please create incident to SAP Support to get assistance on the issue.
