Message no. KE396. Inconsistency between a document field and the prof. segment number

Hi, colleagues!

Your consultation by mistake is necessary:

Message no. KE396. Inconsistency between a document field and the prof. segment number.

In transaction of VI01 I establish Transfer, then I press to Save. But the system gives out a mistake:

Message no. KE396. Inconsistency between a document field and the prof. segment number.

Diagnosis

A line item was assigned to a profitability segment (number 0010700998) which has the value 9670 for characteristic Plant. The original document (FI document, sales order, internal order, etc.), however, contains 9600 in this field. It is therefore inconsistent with the profitability segment found.

System Response

The characteristics in Profitability Analysis (CO-PA) must have the same characteristic values as the original document. For example, you cannot assign a sales order to a different customer or product than the one contained in the original sales order. If you wish to fill the characteristics with different contents, you must change the original fields.

Procedure

Enter the correct characteristic values on the CO-PA assignment screen. The system will automatically assign a corresponding profitability segment number. If it is not possible to enter values in some of these fields, delete the entire assignment to a profitability segment number and then enter it again.

As a rule, you should first enter the fields in the original sender document and then make the assignment to a profitability segment.

I can't understand in any way how to correct an error. Question urgent.

Prompt, please.

Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    To solve the error KE396 in VI01, please apply SAP note 185044.

    After you applied the coding of note 185044, please generate program

    RK2LXXXX(XXXX: the operating concern),call up function module 'RKE_GENERATE_INTERFACE_ACT'

    in the test environment and execute it for the respective operating concern.

    Example: If the operating concern is 'S001', then Program RK2LS001 needs to be generated.

    To generate RK2LS001 proceed as follows:

    1. Transaction SE37 (Function library access)

    2. Function module: 'RKE_GENERATE_INTERFACE_ACT'

    3. Press button 'individual test' (F8)4. Enter import parameter ERKRS = 'S001'5. Press button 'execute' (F8)

    Best regards,

    Ronghua Fan
