3378360 - Exact copy of document type ER does not allow intercompany expense


  • When defining a new document type in SSCUI or Configuration Activity 101522 'Define Document Types'. The creation of this is an exact copy of the document type ER.
  • Following the creation of this document type when attempting to post an intercompany expense posting with the new copied document type the system results in error.
  • A sample error message is KI302 "CO account assignment object &1 &2 belongs to company code &3, not &4."
  • The ER document type allows this type of intercompany expense without error.



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Define a new document type in SSCUI 101522.
  2. Create an exact copy of the ER document type (Manual Expense).
  3. A sample posting may include, Create Supplier Invoice.
  4. Enter the header details (Company Code XXXX) and the new document type.
  5. Attempt to simulate or post with a WBS Element or Project from Company Code YYYY.
  6. Error message KI302 "CO account assignment object &1 &2 belongs to company code &3, not &4."
  7. When simulating or posting with ER this posting is allowed.


The behavior is different because document type ER is defined in customizing table FCO_ICO_TE_BLART as relevant for travel expense reposting.


  • Details can be found in this blog Intercompany Cost Allocations in S/4HANA Cloud in chapter 'Supplier invoice with intercompany account assignment' .
  • In S/4HANA Cloud this table only contains document type 'ER'. 
  • Therefore it is not possible to create an identical copy of the ER document type. 
  • The system works as designed.
  • The ER document type can only process cross company code/intercompany WBS elements via the Create Supplier Invoice app and API. 
  • This process is not supported in Post General Journal Entries.  KI302 is correct in this scenario.
