Billing Type (COPA-FKART) not available as Target field in KEDR

Hi,

To accomodate new business process, we're looking to defualt the 'billing type' values by using COPA derivation KEDR. However, I couldn't find the option billing type (FKART) under drop down of characteristics. In fact, there are more Characteristics under Source Field option, however, there were very few asTarget Field.

My questions are;

  • Why there are only few Char.options under target fields vis-a-vis Source fields in KEDR
  • What needs to be done to add a Char. like (Billing Type-FKART) as Target field?
  • Does it require to maintain entry in Table TKEZU or some enhancement?

Any suitable reply will be highly appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks.

Nirav

    Hi Nirav,

    You need to implement following SAP notes:

    1. 638097 - Derivation type: Characteristics can not be changed

    2. 390396 - Billing type as Target field in KEDR derivation.

    regards

      Thanks a ton, Waman,

      Note 390396 fixed the issue. My entire focus was so to find the fix in system itself, that I absolutely missed to look for OSS note.

      Thanks a lot, again. Truly appreciate it.!

    Hi Nirav

    Billing Type is a fixed char and it is filled automatically

    I don't think it can be changed. May be you can use a custom char to capture that

      Hi Ajay,

      I wanted to check note 390396 first as suggested by Waman, which fixed the issue. If it were not, I would have routed to create new WWXXX.

      But, it was indeed an interesting roadblock, which was sailed through.

      Thanks for your inputs, as always.:)

    Hi Nirav,

    To answer your question:

    1. The list of char. in source fields are those whcih are activated for your Operating concern.

    2. and 3. As said by Ajay, FKART is a fixed char and can not be changed (this char is already available for creating reports). However, if you want this you can create a custom char starting with WW (once created and activated, it will be available in scource field) and use this in derivation rule.

    Regards,

    ND
