Activate account based CO-PA

I'm going to activate account based CO-PA at a client which already uses costing based version since 5 years on European level. In order to be sure, what happens to table space and perform sizing, I am looking for someone, who can tell me all the tables, which are affected due to the activation.

    HI Norbert,

    Did you find answer to the question that you posted below. I know it has been a long time but I will be doing the same activation at my client place so just wanted to check what will be affected due to this activation.

    The data for the account-based CO-PA is written into the already existing CO-tables: COEP, COEJ, COSP and COSS. So there will be no impact on the tables.

    The cost accounting document created with account based CO-PA active is a different one than that with account based turned off. If account based isn't active the posting leaving CO-OM is put to a reconciliation object. If account based is active the same posting will go to a profitability segment for account based CO-PA. This 'trick' made the introduction of account based CO-PA possible without creating extra tables. The reconciliation object is naturally on a higher aggregation

    level, so that the number sum records in CO is smaller than with account based CO-PA active.

    There is a note that describes the differences between the

    costing-based and the account-based Profitability Analysis types.

    Please review the note 69384.
