SAP has recently introduced the Planning functionality based on the ACDOCP table.  While for the moment it has very little practical application from a functional perspective, the potencial is clearly there. I think we can expect future functionalities based on the ACDOCP table. One of the benefits is the availability of multiple currencies, while traditional Controlling is limited to "just" three currencies.

The challenge for the project team has never been about choosing one functionality over another, because currently there is no functional overlap. Planning in Controlling with plan versions is a must-have feature and all standard CO reports are using it.

The challenge comes when there is a need to use both planning methods at the same time and therefore to ensure the data is consistent (or in sync) between two different methods. Some Fiori reports would read the data exclusively from the ACDOCP for example.

SAP has issued an OSS note addressing this topic:

https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2968212

New programs allow for the bidirectional data syncronization from CO to ACDOCP and the other way round:

R_FINS_PLAN_TRANS_CO_S4H_2_ERP

R_FINS_PLAN_TRANS_CO_ERP_2_S4H

Hi ,

Thanks for this great information. I have fix and var costs in kp06. When i launched this program that
R_FINS_PLAN_TRANS_CO_S4H_2_ERP i cant see any seperation between fix and var costs. Do you know anything about seperation between fix and var costs into ACDOCP?

Hi Bahadir,

As far as I can see it in SE16 it is not available in the ACDOCP.

Thank you,

Paulo

There is a fresh OSS note 3089378 that deals with a transfer of zero values.

Did anyone try to install these programs in previous S4core versions? I'm in 104 and I'd need these programs

The compatibility information must be mentioned in the OSS note, but if you have any doubt in such case I would open an OSS message to clarify with product owner.

Good Information...I got slight doubt about plan version and I got clarified from here:

https://answers.sap.com/questions/13395760/plan-category-vs-plan-version.html

 

ACDOCA table will reach near to 500 fields in near future.

ACDOC* tables will be the future for FIORI apps.

Hello, everyone,

first of all a great article and thanks for the information.

I have a problem now. When running report R_FINS_PLAN_TRANS_CO_S4H_2_ERP I get the following message:

Celem category 42 of cost element xxxx is not supported: No Transfer.

However, I also have to transfer these values to the old CO tables. Do you know of an S-Note that can fix this error?

Thank you for your support

Hi Marco,

That must be by design to ensure always a zero balance for assessments.

Hello Paulo,

honestly this doesn't solve my problem. I have to make sure that costs which are posted with the cost type 42 are transferred from the ACDOCP to the old CO tables by using this report R_FINS_PLAN_TRANS_CO_S4H_2_ERP.

Right now this report do not support this step.

SAP Ticket is already raised for this issue.

Hi Marco,

The error you are facing is not any kind of a program bug, that is by design.  Otherwise you would be able to create inconsistent plan data in CO tables.  Cost planning with cost type 42 must be originated from CO side. Maybe SAP can enhance the program logic to validate that balance of such accounts is giving a zero total, but it would be quite an effort in the logic.

Regards,

Paulo

Hi Paulo,

why could be designed in this way. 
- if there is a problem with balance for 42 cost type -> error message. 
- if balance is ok -> execute transfer.
