1. Purpose:
The purpose of this document is to demonstrate the process of changing profit center for a particular material in material master. In standard SAP it is possible to change the profit center at any time. However this should be done with care as it may create inconsistencies in profit center accounting. Hence all existing stock should be issued first to a cost center with 201 movement type, then change the profit center followed by another reversal entry with movement type 202.

2. Process:
Following are all the relevant screen shots that will demonstrate the entire process of changing the profit center.
