Account creation problem

Sir in tcode MB31 i am getting following message:-

Message no. KI280


Account 50200000 is a profit and loss account. You assigned it to an object in cost accounting (for example, a cost center, order, or project).

System response

Account 50200000 in the determined controlling area ARP must exist as a cost element on the posting date 18.10.2008.
