Activity types represent the activity that a cost center produces. These are measured either in unit of time or quantity.
In organization, resources of one CC are used by another CC (Activities produced by one cost center are used by another cost center). To allocate cost from one CC to other we use activity types.
You can group different activity type into a group for reporting purpose.
You can create it by using transaction code KL01 or path;
Sap easy access menu > accounting > controlling > CCA > master data > activity type > individual processing > KL01 – create
In the initial creation screen you enter the name and the validity period. If you want it to be valid for ever then in the to field enter validity period as 31.12.9999.
Then you enter the relevant field and save it.
- Enter the unit correctly. If you want your it to be measured by hour then in the field of activity unit enter “H”.
- Enter CC category
- Activity type category is the most important part for creation so select your category correctly.
- Allocate the secondary cost element created with category 43.
Save your setting.
How to change
You can change it by transaction code KL02 or path;
Sap easy access menu > accounting > controlling > CCA > master data > activity type > individual processing > KL02 – change
How to display
You can display it by transaction code KL03 or by path;
Sap easy access menu > accounting > controlling > CCA > master data > activity type > individual processing > KL03 – display
You can also use transaction code KL04 to delete and KL05 to display changes it. You can delete if there are no dependent records for it. Only newly created activity type without any dependent record can be deleted. We suggest you to run the deletion in test run once before executing the transaction.
