The below error is issued when adding a Cost Book to an Inventory Business Unit (navigation: Set Up Financials/Supply Chain, Business Unit Related, Inventory, Inventory Definition - Tab: Business Unit Books) and changing the Status from 'Pending' to 'Active'.

Cannot change status from Pending to Active. (15500,54)

One or more business unit items does not have a cost profile associated with this book. Check the Create Item Profiles field and save the page to associate this book to all items which have default cost profile group.
You still need to make the association manually for items that do not have cost method group default by going to Maintain Items, Use, Item Attributes by Unit.
The Items without Cost Profiles report may also help.

What does the error really mean and how to resolve it to set the Cot Book to 'Active'?
