This method supplies, for a combination of company code, business areaand cost element, the account assignment stored in CO Customizing, that is, a cost center and/or an overhead order.
The method does not give a result if no controlling area is assigned to
the company code. As this is not a problem from a business perspective, the R/3 System does not issue an error message.
If no account assignment is stored in CO Customizing at the companycode / business area / cost element level, the system searches for and
returns an account assignment at the company code / cost element level.
If no account assignment is stored at the company code /cost element level, the system enters "E" in the "Type" field of the RETURNstructure.
