Installing Planning Areas delivered with SEM 4.0

Former Member

We have installed the Business Content from within the "Install Business Content" menu under RSA1. I think the cube was SEm_C18 but can't remember for sure since I'm not in front of the menu. Can someone help me understand how to install the planning areas that are delivered. They do not show up under the "Install Business Content" area.

I've heard that we need to install from client 000 but that does not seem logical compared to all the other content we have installed. This was not taught in the BPS class. Any help for our company would be appreciated.

The business is for the bw objects only - like infocubes and infoobjects. But there is no such content for planning objects.

However there should be sime predefined planning areas in client 000 which you can copy to your client.

There is a description in SAP Help:

SEM-BPS > Predefined Planning Functions > Planning Applications > Generating Sample Data > Transferring...

Hi Richard,

The process is different to the normal BW process, instead of installing it directly on your client, you have to select the process in client 000 and then import in your working client.

The process is as follows:

1) log on to client 000 of your BW system

2) goto transaction UPB_APPL_IMPORT (in client 000 of course) and click the planning function you want to install the busines content of

3) run transaction UPB_APPL_IMPORT; this will generate a transport request

4) release this transport in client 000

5) import in the working client

Most of the planning areas are defined as remote planning areas, you will receive an error if you try to access them.

Switch to local planning areas in the planning area.

You also have to install the BW transactional cubes, this can be done using the normal BW business content transactions.

Thanks for your points, but only if I deserved them.
