cost element category 11 problem

Dear Experts,

While creating PR using GL account xxxx this error message appears:

Revenue cannot be assigned to CTR xxxx//2222

Message no. KI 295


The given object is not a valid additional account assignment for revenue or debit postings.


In this transaction only use additional account assignments that allow revenue postings.

I've check through KA03, the CE category is "revenue" (category 11). I've tried using another CE (e.g: CE category 1)to creating PR and its works.

How to fix this issue since the user still want to use the CE with category 11?

Pls advice.

If you would still want to create the purchase requisition with the same cost element and the cost center, please do the following:

1. Go to KS02 and change the cost center. In the "control" tab, remove the tick marks in the actual and plan revenue fields.

2. Check in KA03 uif the C Elem Cat is 11

3. Ensure in Me51n the Acct Assignment Cat is K

4. Give the GL account (C Elem) and the cost center in the item detail section.

Then save the PR. It will allow you to save....let me know if you need anything else from me.'
