inconsistency between EKBE and MSEG

Hello all,

I have come across an inconsistency (I believe) btw 2 sap tables that is causing an issue for a program that we are in the middle of developing.

The problem is that the field "Fiscal Year" (GJAHR) means different things in 2 tables. In MSEG (material document segment) it means Fiscal year (data element = GJAHR), however in EKBE (PO History) it means document year (data element = MJAHR). we are trying to do a join btw EKBE and MSEG using GJAHR but as it "means" 2 different things in the tables we get a problem.

My question is...has any one seen this before and if so how did they resolve it. I have tried to search for OSS notes but nothing relevant comes up. Don't want to log a call with SAP at this stage.

    Hi Elizabeth,

    This is NOT an inconsistency. Both are "document years" amd your join should work fine.
