Open a form for operating units by using one of the following paths:
Click Organization administration > Setup > Organization > Operating units.
Click General ledger > Setup > Organization > Business units.
Click General ledger > Setup > Organization > Cost centers.
Click General ledger > Setup > Organization > Departments.
Operating units is a good concept to consolidate the various reporting perspectives/ units (e.g. department, branch, retail channel value stream etc.) under one umbrella.
Directly using an Operating unit (without configuring a Financial Dimension) for posting transactions is not possible.
