SAP has some standard cost element category for secondary element creation. We create it for activity type, to relocate cost from one cost object to another cost object. The cost element category we have to use for activity allocation is “43 – internal activity allocation”.
To create secondary CE for activity type you can use transaction code KA06 or below path;
SPRO > CONTROLLING > COST CENTER ACCOUNTING > MASTER DATA > ACTIVITY TYPE > DEFINE COST ELEMENTS FOR ACTIVITY ALLOCATION
Relevant points while creating a secondary cost element for activity type;
- Validity period must be entering correctly. If you want to have it created for a specific period then enter valid from and to filed with your specification or else enter the end date as 31.12.9999 to make the it valid for ever.
- You can create it with reference to an existing secondary cost element by entering it in the initial creation screen.
- Enter the CE category as 43 – internal activity allocation.
To link it to a secondary cost element we need to assign it in activity type master data.
To create it you can use the transaction code KL01 or following path;
SPRO > Controlling > Cost Center Accounting > Master Data > Activity Type > Create Activity type
You can change, display and delete secondary cost element.
How to change
You can change it through transaction code KA02 or using following path;
SPRO > CONTROLLING > COST CENTER ACCOUNTING > MASTER DATA > ACTIVITY TYPE > CHANGE COST ELEMENTS FOR ACTIVITY ALLOCATION
How to display
You can display it by using transaction code KA03 or by using the following path
Sap Menu > Accounting > Controlling > Cost Center Accounting > Master Data >Cost Element > Individual Processing > KL03 – Display
