Cross Company Postings - TKA00 - RKBUK

Hi All,

Current situation:

SAP R/3 system initially set up with checked RKBUK checkbox which

disabled cross company postings.

New Requirement:

Enable cross company postings (i.e. only usage of Cost Objects from other

company codes, no usage of usage of GL Account from receiving Company Code).

Possible Solution:

Process for Controlling Area a hard database update to "unchecked"

checkbox RKBUK in table TKA00.


In the SAP performance assistant it is stated that "You can then

deactivate the company code validation by deactivating company code

validation in the control indicators for the controlling area. You

maintain the control indicators for the controlling area in the

Implementation Guide under Controlling -> General Controlling ->

Organization -> Maintain Controlling Area."

Question 1) Is this update only possible at the beginning of a fiscal

year when no transaction data is existing?

Question 2) Is this indicator update yearly necessary (at the beginning

of a new fiscal year) or is it a one time effort?

Question 3) Is this update supported by SAP?

As an interim solution we would assign relevant Cost Objects to the

paying Company Code and these Cost Objects will be processed as


As Cost Objects can only exist once in a Controlling Area we would

reassign later on these Cost Objects back to the original/real Cross

Company entities.

Question 4) Is this reassignment supported by SAP?

Thank you for your quick support...
