Consider the scenario:
You are already making asset transaction postings to an existing account assignment object (say cost center) however, for a particular business requirement you need to make these postings to another account assignment object (say internal order) in addition to the current one (which also means assigning a single asset to more than one cost object).
Pre-requisite: To be able to post asset transactions to both cost assignment objects (Cost Center and Internal Order), the internal order must be a statistical Internal Order.
The following steps have to be followed to achieve this objective:
- Activation of the new account assignment object (in this example Internal Order).
