Service Profit Center or an Allocation Profit Center

Hello Gurus,

I would greatly appreciate your help on the following question. Points available.

I am creating profit centers according to product line. I have read in SAP's PCA 4.6c documentation that if you want to divide your company into profit centers according to product groups you can do so. I also read that it is often not possible to assign administration cost centers directly to a profit center. For example, the ACCOUNTING & FINANCE cost center is not directly related to the products sold. The documentation goes on to say that one might, for example, assign them to a <u><b>service profit center</b></u> or an <u><b>allocation profit center.</b></u>This profit center would then contain all the administrative costs which occur.

My question is this: <b>How would I go about creating this Service Profit center or Allocation profit center?</b> <u>Could someone give me a step by step approach to configuring this in the system?</u> Or is their a better way?

Thanks in advance!
