Cost element error on internal activity

Hi all;

I am currently having a problem in that when I enter a value in the Mat. Planning field on the Assignment tab of an internal activity I get the following error: " Cost element 400000 does not exist in CO area XXXX"

Where can I change the assignment from cost element 400000 to another that is within the CO area?

The obvious answer would be to create the required cost element but I am trying to avoid this.

Step 1: Tcode: OBYC

Step2: Double click on GBB and then go to general modifier : VBR, select a Valuation class and copy the GL account from here.

Step3: Insure that the Cost element is created for this GL account (It should be there)

Step4: Tcode: OPUU, Activity tab, internally processed activity, material cost element mention the Cost element of step 3.

Step5: Create a New project and assign the Internal activity and carry out the material cost planning.

Hope it helps...
