hi Jyothi,

1.check in SAP OSS with the Message Number I remember that this is due to driving the Business area Rule which you have maintained in the Document Split rule.

2.Please check in the tcode OKB9 whether all records are maintained.

3.Also there could be multiple reasons for this. Pls check on:

a. For the Expense Account assigned in DIF, have u made the assignment for deriving Profit Center & Business Area in T Code OKB9

b. Ask your FI Consultant to check the Splitting Characteristics for the MIGO. Check the Splitting Characteristics assigned to the Accounting Document Type assigned to T Code MIGO. Also check if all the GL Accounts have been assigned a splitting characteritics. The path is:

IMG> Financial Accounting(New)>General Ledger Accounting (New)>Business Transactions>Document Splitting

c. Do you maintain profit center as a default in material Master? If yes, check if the same has been assigned in the view extended for the plant concerned?

Thanks & Best Regards
