Characteristics updated in Account Base COPA not in Costing Base COPA

Hell All Experts,

I am facing an issue where characteristics ABC and XYZ are updated in billing document “Prof Segment” button not showing in KE24 COPA Report.

“Prof Segment” button info of sales order and billing document is updated and same so no changes I see meanwhile of sales order and billing.

We have Account Base COPA and Costing Base COPA activated.

Another observation is when I am checking these both characteristics are updated for Account Base COPA in KE24 same is showing blank in Costing Base Report in KE2 NOT updated for costing base COPA.

Derivation Step as as a “Derivation Rule” from VCONF to WWXXXX is defined correctly and values as well maintained.

Lot many documents are affected with this behaviour. 

Any idea for this behaviour? Expert’s guidance will be helpful on this.

Regards,

Sharvari Joshi.

Hi

Is this WW char selected as segment level in KEQ3 for both type of copas?

check the copa document. What difference do you notice there

refer note 1351257. It explains well how psg is determined in both type of COPAs

Yes sir, both characteristics are marked as CB COPA and AB COPA radio button selected.

I will go though the SAP Note as well.

Thank you.

Hello Ajay Sir,

I checked in system. There are two derivation steps are defined as a RULE with VCONF and in third the EXIT is defined.

The values which are derived in two RULES are wiped out in EXIT, so this is the primary reason for this.

But I have reached to basics of COPA now, Costing Base COPA picks the value when billing document is triggered / saved and final values in Prof Seg are fixed which we see in billing document Prof Seg button.

Now in between time of saving the billing document and showing the values in KE24 does any activity happens between these two steps ? ( Saving Billing <<---->>> Running KE24 )

Because I had basic belief that whatever gets finalized at the time of billing naturally it MUST be visible in KE24. But in my case Billing Doc Prof Segment has all the characteristics perfectly populated but not showing KE24.

is this strange or my understanding problem ?

Regards,

Sharu....

Hi Sharu

1. Don't check in VF03. Check in Copa doc which got posted in Cbcopa. It should be same as KE24

2. No processes take place once Copa doc is posted. Ke24 is just Fbl3n.

3. I suspect your Copa doc is not having same chars as SD billing doc. Fix your exit code and it should be fine
