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.
