Account Assignment - cost center to company code


When I try to create a PO, I have to choose in organizational data on header level the company code.

If the cost assignment category is K - kost center, in the tab account assignment on item level I have to choose a cost center.

Now the strange thing, that on the right hand side of that tab, always the same company code is listed. It is greyed out, meaning it can not be changed and it doesn't change together with changing the company code on header leve.

Does anyone has any idea how to fix this? It should be changeable or it should change accordingly to the company code on header level. Or is there something else which I don't see?

Thanks, Peter

The company code at item level is determined via the plant that is entered at item level.

The plant is allocated to a company code.

The company code at header level is only used to determine the house currency and its exchange rates as well as the VAT reg number. Because you can have header conditions, and import data has as well header level data.
