Account requires assignment to CO object

We are trying to post a journal to a combination of general ledger and profit centre only but we are getting an error message saying the gl requires an entry to a CO object. There are already debit postings to this gl however we cannot do a credit posting. The gl field status group states that the Internal order and cost centre optional. The item category in the cost element is 1 Primary costs/cost-reducing revenues. I added an entry in OKB9 and mapped the gl to a profit centre but I'm still getting the error. The debit postings are in against this gl and we need to get them out of there. I think if we change the item category of the cost element to 12 sales deduction that it might work but we tried this in our test system and it didn't permit us to change it.

I would be really grateful for any help with this. thanks
