    Hello Kevin,

    To resolve Problem#1 above, Initialize the planning area with appropriate 'From Date' and 'To Date' using SE38 program : /SAPAPO/TS_PAREA_INITIALIZE. Once your planning area is initialized covering 1 or 2 years in future. You will not get this error : Date outside Storage Buckets Profile area.

    Based on your time bucket profile (//TR30), I understand you want to show 4 quarters of data in display periodicity of "Month".

    Now regarding Problem#2 : Insufficient shift entry found and deleted. Example: Offset 1 or 2. I have following information share -

    Based on SAP Help, This is how Offset works. Number of offset periods that is applied to the future or history horizon. For both forecast and historical data a positive offset means that period is moved to the future and a negative offset means it is moved to the past. To use this option, you must define the future and historical forecasting horizons by entering numbers of periods. Do not enter From and To dates.


    Hope this will help.

    Thank you

    Hello, As Satish suggested, extending the initialization horizon of the planning area with report /sapapo/ts_parea_initialize will solve the first issue.

    For the second issue, you'll need to input a number with a sign, e.g. -1, -2, +1, +2, instead of just 1 or 2.

    Thank you. Both your suggestions corrected my problems.

    IDES was down yesterday and I had to learn how to connect the database. I am a functional user, but all good I did it. This is FUN learning.

    1. Initialize Planning Area. See my picture, not sure if I am on a newer version or older version, but I was able to initialize by extending future Global Period in /TSINIT vs /TS_PAREA_INITIALIZE.

    2. I simply forgot that you MUST use + or -. That's it.

    Can either of you help with my Promotion Planning Error, this I am truly stuck after a long battle. http://scn.sap.com/thread/3473461

    Sorry Ada I was hoping it would allow me to give two correct answers.

    Everything works. Thank you.

    • I am glad you are having fun while learning some APO technical things. It is always an advantage for functional person to know technical things.


      Both /TSINIT and /TS_PAREA_INITIALIZE opens the same screen which is used for initializing the planning area. Difference is /SAPAPO/TSINIT is a Transaction Code where as /SAPAPO/TS_PAREA_INITIALIZE is ABAP Program which can be run using Transaction Code : SE38.

      Happy Learning 😊

      Thank you
