PS Cost Activity Cost element field is mandatory as default

Hello PS fellows,

Is there anybody who knows how to handle the default mandatory PS Cost Activity Cost element field?

This field is mandatory as default and if I try to change it in transaction OPUC (Field election: Modifiable Fields) then it is set to just "INPUT" field so I cannot change it to only be input field..

How does it actually work?

What I want is create a "Unit Costing" and it means that I would set the Cost elements in the unit Costing sheet. What happens now is that I have to specify a cost element twice, every time I will create an activity and then when I create a unit costing.

Not effective way to work and, this can be a little confusing, I think.

Another alternative is to set a cost element as default at the network profile (OPUU) in the cost activity but this cost element is a dummy cost element and I have to change it any way.

So, how to solve this problem? I think this scenario should exist in other companiesu2026Please help me.

Best Regards

Jose Marin
