1701292 - Error Message: DD.MM.YYYY to DD.MM.YYYY; profit center XYZ must be below a segment. It is also possible to flag both definitions on the same org unit.

Symptom

When you try to activate the Organizational Structure, system throws below error message:

DD.MM.YYYY to DD.MM.YYYY; profit center XYZ must be below a segment. It is also possible to flag both definitions on the same org unit.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Organizational Management work center.
  2. Select Edit Org Structures under Common Tasks.
  3. Select Activate button and choose Activate All.

Cause

The cause for the above error message is that the org unit XYZ is marked as Profit Center from DD.MM.YYYY which is not allowed because there is an Org unit below this which is a Segment.

Resolution

In principle, a Profit center should be always below the Segment.

So the solution here is either you can mark the Org Unit XYZ as Segment from DD.MM.YYYY or uncheck the Profit Center attribute of Org Unit XYZ from DD.MM.YYYY.
