Hello Community

20 FICO Tips - Series 1


20 FICO Tips - Series 2


Sr. No.Knowledge ItemBrief Description
1How do I specify a different exchange rate type for Controlling Settlements?
  • OKO9 can be used to specify the required Fx rate type at Co. Area and Settlement Type Level
2How can I move multiple SETS, Cost Center Groups, Cost Element Groups, etc from one client to another
  • Program RGSSTE00 for download (GS07) and  RGSSTI00 (GS08) for upload
    • This comes handy while moving Substitutions, Validations or CO Allocation Cycles
3Can a Characteristic or Value Field in COPA be deleted, despite having transaction data?
  • Yes, Refer note 21207
4I issued a Marking Allowance (CK24) using an undesired Costing Variant. Cost is also released after that. Can the a Marking Allowance be deleted now?
  • Use FM CK_F_FVMK_POSTING to reset the Costing Variant
5How and when is a Profitability Segment derived?
  • Note 1351257 explains in detail how and when a PSG is determined in ABCOPA and CBCOPA
6Which enhancement options can be used during a Standard Cost Estimate?
  • BADI QUANTITY_STRUCT_CK & BADI MAT_SELECTION_CK
    • These BADIs can be used to choose specific Production Versions, Ignore Special Procurement Keys during cost estimate and so on
7How to find out which validation is causing a Z error message?
  • If the message is issued by a validation, then you can find out the name of it by debugging G_VSR_VALIDATION_CALL. Refer to point ' 3. How can I use the Debugger to analyze a problem?' in note 842318
8How to populate a PSG while posting FI documents using a Custom Program?
  • Use FM 'COPA_PROFITABILITY_SEGMENT' within the BAPI _ACC_DOCUMENT_POST
9Derivation rules in COPA refer to a Table that was not transported. How do I correct the inconsistency?
  • Execute RKEDRCHECK with only parameter 'Check in all clients' marked.
10How to reorganize file descriptions in excel planning?
  • Use Program RKCDPREO
11Can Z Fields be used as account assignment objects during depreciation (AFAB)?
  • Add the Z Fields in the additional account assignment structure ANLZACCOUNT
12Can CO Allocation cycles be download and uploaded into / from an excel sheet?
  • Use Program RKALTRANS
13I have a huge CC Standard Hierarchy (OKEON) to be created. Is there a way to automate it?
  • SAP offers template program RGSIMPH2, which needs to be copied and adopted to customer needs
  • This program can also be used to create any Master Data Groups like CC Group, CE Group, etc
14How to add Custom fields in the Standard Asset Accounting reports?
  • Refer note 335065
15How to deal with mid-year change to Company code / Business area in Cost center?
  • Use program RKACOR06.
  • Relevant SAP notes can be searched using the program name
16Which table stores the values for Variance Calculation?
  • Refer Table COEPB.
    • Business Transaction: COEPB-VRGNG  KVAR
    • Value Type: COEPB-WRTTP  31 (Variances)
17Can I find in what all CO Allocation cycles a Cost Center is used?
  • Use Program RKALLOOK
    • Refer Pilot Note 1009571 for prob with Lower/Upper case values
18How do I move segment from one allocation cycle to another?
  • Use Program RKALSMOV
19

Amounts in certain currencies like JPY, IDR are stored differently in SAP Tables (Ratios other than 1:1 in OBBS)

What care should I take while using these values in RICEFs?

  • Use the following FMs
    • BAPI_CURRENCY_CONV_TO_EXTERNAL (For SAP to External format)
    • BAPI_CURRENCY_CONV_TO_INTERNAL (For External format to SAP)
20How to identify a follow on document from FI doc?
