Segment missing; segment reporting active from DD.MM.YYYY.

Profit center missing; profit center accounting active from DD.MM.YYYY. "

Cause

You have activated Profit Center and Segment accounting as the reporting principles of your set of books.

The profit center derivation does not work at migration stage. You have to maintain the profit center and segment in the template and migrate the data once again.

Resolution

You have to maintain the profit center and segment in the template and migrate the data once again.

The fields Profit Center ID and Segment ID are hidden in the Excel file of the migration file.

You need to unhide the rows and enter the data.

Alternatively, change the data directly in Step 1-Process file via Actions - Edit.
