You expect to see the information of an invalid cost center. However, you can only see the cost center ID, but missing other information such as the description of the cost center. 


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Cost and Revenue work center.
  2. Go to Cost Centers view.
  3. Search cost center ID: AAA under 'all cost centers'.
  4. You could not see the complete information of this cost center, for example the cost center description.

You can check the full information about the cost center as follows:

  1. Go to Organizational Management work center.
  2. Go to edit Org Structures view.
  3. Search for cost center: AAA, and you can see cost center name: BBB, valid to: DD.MM.YYYY, which is already invalid.


The cost center always takes the current date to execute.

Since the cost center has time dependency and the way modeling can be done, it is not possible to show the descriptions if the cost center has already been delimited.
