2901005 - Profit Center is not being displayed on Manage Supplier Line Item


User is trying to select the Profit Center in the search criteria, but even if the Profit Center is tied to the GL account and being displayed on the Journal entry.


S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open Manage Supplier Line item.
  2. Add Profit "Center to adept filter.
  3. Add your searching criteria including the Profit Center and Go
  4. Even if you add the correct data, you'll not be able to to get the results.


In SAP S/4HANA Cloud the system will write the Profit Center assignment to the GL account line items only. The Profit Center is not assigned on document level, but on level of the GL account line items.


In general there is also a possibility to have further GL account line items in such a document. In that case there can be different Profit Center assignments and hence it would not be possible to have one single Profit Center for the document.

The app Manage Supplier Line Items, however, always shows the "whole" AP line item.

If you are interested in a reporting / list of AP line items which include also the profit center assignments there is a possibility via the app Display Line Items in General Ledger.

In this app you can select via Supplier ID to list all Line Items related this supplier. In addition you can also use a filter by the reconciliation accounts to restrict further.

This app will show you the document including the Profit Center assignment.

Since both apps have different focus, Display Line Items in General Ledger doesn’t offer all attributes which would be needed for Financial Operations. But some essential information like Net Due Date is available.

Please note: in case of document split - for example if you have several GL line items with different Profit Centers, then you will see several lines in this app for the same document
