Activate FI-CA without activating any IS solution

Hi Experts,

Is it possible to have all functionality of FI-CA in ECC without activating any IS solution. I was just doing a comparison and I have following observation:

  1. Billing & Invoicing Transactions were missing in Easy Access menu in ECC FI-CA.
  2. Dunning by Collection strategy node was missing in SPRO menu in ECC FICA.

My Question would be, can anyone tell me the

  1. Major difference between ECC FICA and IS FICA.
  2. Can ECC FICA be used for the same purpose we use in IS solution.
  3. Does Extended FICA (FICAX) have all functionality of IS- FICA like for e.g. RMCA & PSCD.

Thanks & Regards

    Hi Satyajeet,

    I think you are looking in to the SPRO configs where in you are getting configuration nodes for Contract Accounts receivable and payable.

    This is because, as of Release SAP ERP 2005, the SAP FI-CAX software is no longer delivered separately from the SAP Standard system. Instead, it forms part of SAP ERP 2005 Central Component (SAP ECC), with the name SAP ECC Industry Extension FI-CAX. This means that the FI-CAX software is on the system as soon as you install SAP ECC.

    Please refer to SAP Note 884566.

    I think you will find FICA tables like DFKKOP, DPAYH etc. but I am sure you will not found any standard FI-CA Transactions, like FPL9 , FPE1 etc.

    Please refer to the SAP Note 838003 as a reference.

    FI-CA comes with these Industry Solutions, and only one IS add-on can be activated in a system.

    So until and unless you activate an IS, I don't think you will be able to use FI-CA functionalities.

    Hope it helps...
