Cost Elements should not be created for the following.

1 Change in work in process WIP

2. Cost element for cost of goods sold transactions. (P&L Accounts maintained in OBYC > GBB > General Modification VAX)

3. Production order variances. (P&L Accounts maintained in OBYC > PRD > General Modification PRF)

4. Do not create any cost elements for financial and tax expenses if you want your CO-PA structure to stop at earnings before interest and taxes

5. Price Difference account should not be made as cost element.

Please explain for situation where COPA is implemented and where COPA is not implemented . . .

Any guidence in this regard will be of grate help . . .
