SAP BRIM with FICAX and DIMPS in a single ERP system

In our existing the ERP system, the DIMP (Industry extension) business function set is activated, but we are not using any features or capabiliities that DIMP offers. We now plan to use FI-CAX, Does any one know how to deactivate DIMP and turn 'ON' FI-CAX.

For example, Can we builld a new instance with DIMP off and FI-CAX 'ON' and do a database copy (refresh) from our our exisitng system to this new instance, does it work or are there any challenges with this approach?

    Hi Suresh,

    I had the same problem, and even if it's too late now, maybe some other colleagues might find this helpful:

    As per note 2175471, you need to manually create a combined business function set of FI-CAX and DIMP:

    1. Call transaction SFW3, enter "Z_DIMP_FICAX" as name for business function set. Press button "Create".

    2. Enter short text: "FI-CAX and DIMP". Save.

    3. Enter a customer package, press "Save".

    4. On the tab "Business Function Sets" enter DIMP and FICAX in field "Subordinate Business Function Sets".

    5. Press button "Activate". Having done that, the combined business function set exists

    6. Call transaction SFW5, select the new business function set "Z_DIMP_FICAX" and activate business functions for FI-CAX as needed. Press "Activate".
