Integrating SAP4 and SAP3 planning area

Hi All,

My team is working on creating a single planning area with Demand Supply Inventory and S&OP functionality. So as advised by a SAP team member we started out by

  • Doing an advance copy of SAP4 (Supply) into our planning area PR1.
  • Next step we compared attributes in SAP3 and PR1 and did a merge of missing attributes in PR1 in their corresponding master data. For e.g. attribute CUSTGROUP in S3CUSTOMER(Planning area SAP3) was missing in Master Data PR1CUSTOMER, so we did a merge and copied this attribute into PR1CUSTOMER successfully
  • We activated the master data followed by the planning area PR1

Issue faced - After successfully activating planning area PR1 when we went on to planning levels and tried to create a planning level for e.g. PERPRODCUST we were unable to see CUSTGROUP attribute under PR1CUSTOMER Master Data.

Help required regarding the following points

  • Possible reason and workaround for the above issue
  • How to merge different planning areas SAP3, SAP4 into a single planning area including all their attributes, MDs, key figure

Thank you

    Hi Prabha,

    As you have mentioned, you did an advanced copy of SAP4 with prefix PR1 to create planning area PR1 and MDT PR1CUSTOMER. After this, did you perform merge of planning area SAP3(which obviously would be a simple copy) in planning area PR1?

    If yes, then system would have merged master data S3CUSTOMER in your planning area PR1 and attribute CUSTOMERGROUP should be present in S3CUSTOMER instead of PR1CUSTOMER.

    Can you check this and confirm?
