Business Area

Hi FI Experts,

I created one cost center and bymistake forgot to gave business area, now whenever i am trying to assign it in mode change cost center it is showing me 'field change business area not possible


To ensure the consistency of existing data, you can only change object Business Area if no transaction data exists in the change period; that is, neither plan data nor actual data has been posted.

As transaction data already exists, it is not possible to change objects in this time period.


If you still want to change the object, select a suitable change interval by choosing "Edit -> Analysis period...".

And in change mode not allowing me to edit anything through analysis period, can anybody guide me in this.

Thannks In Advance,
