How to change cost center for one expense report

I am trying to change the cost center for an expense report but every time I try to change it on the report header or try to allocate an expense to a different cost center, I get the following error on each expense:


"You are not allowed to Cross Charge expenses.  You must click the Allocate button for this Entry and change the Cost Center and/or Location fields back to the default value to continue.  If you aren't sure what the default is, go to Details>Report Header."


Is there a way to charge expenses to another cost center that is not the default cost center on your account?

@averykartes and @tcjohn this message means your company doesn't allow you to change cost centers or cross charge. Based on this message, just submit the report with the default cost center value. 


If you feel the expenses should be cross-charged, then add a comment to your report and let the Expense Processors sort it out. 

Thank you,
