CO-PA: Derivation of characteristics from classification values

Hello,

is it possible somehow to use classification values from the material master for the

derivation of customer-specific characteristics in CO-PA?

The SAP documentation doesn't mention them but is there a way to use them?

How can I do that?

Best Regards,

Christian

Hello Alexandros,

this makes sense to me.

I'll will check this with our MM people.

Thanks.

Best Regards,

Thank you, but I'm familiar with the standard derivation rules.

Since I haven't found a reference to a table entry this is not an option.

Has anybody worked with material classification in CO-PA derivation?

Hi,

Your requirement is not clear to me.

If the characteristics you want are present in table MARA then a table lookup on MARA in KEDR should be enough.

If you are using configurable materials then please read my note 1344848.

Are you trying to derive AUSP-ATWRT into a user defined char in COPA ?

If so user exit might be a better approach. The reason being the behavior of one of the source fields AUSP-ATZHL.

Hi,

Please consider the following:

1. Create table lookup to transfer VBAP-CUOBJ to origin "GLOBAL" - field "CUOBJ" (no need to create that field as CO-PA characteristic).

2. Create derivation of type enhancement and use function module 'CUCB_GET_CONFIGURATION'. Import parameter "INSTANCE" stands for "CUOBJ" whereas values per classification characteristic can be derived from Export parameter "CONFIGURATION". Loop at that with proper "ATNAM" (classification characteristic) and get the appropriate "ATWRT" (classification value), which for sure you can assign to an appropriate PA characteristic.

Alex

Christian,

If it is a table-field combination then you should be able to create a TABLE LOOKUP type of derivation rule in COPA. If it is more complex than that, you can use a COPA derivation user exit and pull these values into the caharacteristics.

I hope this helps,

Dave
