Create Profit Center | KE51

SAP Create Profit Center

After we created and assigned our profit center standard have standard profit center hierarchy it is now time to create our first profit center. In this case I am going to use as dummy (default) profit center in case no other assignments exists for the particular transaction.

Transaction: KE51

Menu Path: Accounting -> Financial Accounting -> General Ledger -> Master Records -> Profit Center -> Individual Processing -> Create

Table: CEPC



When you open the transaction, write your short identification and then hit enter.


Fill the necessary fields in Basic Data ‘Tab”.


You could be asked if you for Segment you could choose it or ignore it with “Enter” as in this case.


Next you will get a warning that the new profit center is in inactive status.


To activate the profit center use the “Magic Stick” button.


You could be once again asked for Segment filling. After hitting “Enter” your new Profit Center will be saved.
