Background documentationThe Inheritance Principle


The organizational units in the enterprise organization are subject to the principle of inheritance.

Company code B is assigned to the higher level node. It follows that you must have assigned all those objects that lie below this node (in this case cost centers 4210 and 4220) to company code B.

If cost center 4220 is new, the master data for this cost center is displayed for processing in the detail area. In so doing, the system fixes the assignment to company code B (and therefore also to controlling area 0001). It is not possible for you to change this assignment.

Note Note

The system checks if cost centers have been assigned to a profit center. The corresponding profit center is transferred to the master data.

For profit centers, the system transfers the assigned company code to the master data.

End of the note.
