Profit Center Derivation : Asset Accounting (New General Ledger) ?

I have configured & activated new GL Accounting in my system (ECC 6.0). All my splitting & derivation is working except for transactions related to assets. Whenever I try to do a posting against asset, I get following generic error.

Balancing field "Profit Center" in line item 001 not filled

Message no. GLT2201


The field Profit Center marked as balancing is not filled with any value in line item 001, even after document splitting.

System Response

The document cannot be posted.


First check your entries.

Additional causes could be:

No value can be derived for this field from the current document data.

You have entered a document type that is not designed for this business purpose.

I have done & checked the following :

1. given cost center in asset master which derives the business area. the profit center is given in the cost center master

2. checked the field status group for the asset recon. a/c, posting keys 70, 75 where PC is optional.

3. Confirmed that doc type AA and asset recon ac are characterised for splitting.

I am clueless why is the asset not taking the profit center during transactions.

any welcome would be deeply appreciated. ?

pls answer ??
