Delete: before you copy data, you have to delete the old values. otherwise you have doubled values.

Distribution by keys: you input an value. The you execute the function (for example: you have 10 comany codes). Now you have 10% for every comany code.

Generating Combinations: you don't want create every data row manuelly (for example: 10 company codes and 100 cost centers). Execute the function and you have 1000 rows with every combination. Now you can input your values for the comany code and the costcenter.

Hi ,

Kindly go through the below link for more details on all standard functions,


1. Unit conversion:

Consider that all your planned records are in "G" unit and if you want to convert this to any other unit like "Pound", then you can use this planning function. The prerequisite for this is, you need to create a suitable "Unit conversion type" using the tcode: RSUOM, for converting "G" to "Pounds".

2. Currency Translation:

Consider that all your planned records are in "EUR" currency and if you want to convert this to any other currency like "USD", then you can use this planning function. The prerequisite for this is, you need to create a suitable "Currency translation type" using the tcode: RSCUR, for converting "EUR" to "USD".

3. Deleting Invalid Combinations:

Consider that you did not have any characteristicc relationships in your project and hence you have invalid data in your planning cube. For example, you have 'Product' and 'Product Group' in your cube and the end user has entered wrong values for 'product group' for a corresponding 'product'. In this case you can create a characteristic relationship for 'Product' and 'Product Group' and then execute this planning function so that all the records with invalid relationships between 'Product' and 'Product Group' will be deleted.

4. Repost:

This is similar to 'Copy' planning function. But the only difference is 'Copy' copies the records from source to target. But 'Repost' moves the records from source to target, (i.e.) after the records are copied they are deleted in the source.

5. Repost (Characteristic Relationships):

This is similar to 'Deleting Invalid Combinations' but the only difference is, instead of deleting the invalid combinations, this function reposts the old relationships to the new correct ones based on active characteristic relationships.

6. Distribution by Key:

You can use the Distribution by Key function type to generate the characteristic combinations to which data is distributed in accordance with the master data and characteristic relationships. The key figure values are distributed according to the expressly specified distribution keys. These are distribution functions that determine the weighting of the distribution.

For example, you have planned revenue based on 'Country' but you have some part of the revenue which is "not assigned" to any country. You can use this planning function to distribute this "Not Assigned" revenue to any particular "Country".

7. Distribution by Reference Data:

You use the Distribution by Reference Data function type to generate combinations of characteristics that correspond to the reference data. The system distributes data in accordance with these combinations. The key figure values are distributed by percentage in accordance with the reference data. You use the table for key figure selection to select the key figures that you want to distribute.

For example, you have actual values for the year '2011' and you want to use this data to distribute it to the future year '2012'.

In this case you can use this planning function, to distribute the '2011' data to '2012'. The prerequisite for this is there should be planned data already available for the year '2012'. This function is used after the manual planning is done for the future year.

Hope this clears your doubt.
