FI postings with validation OB28 for CO-PA characteristics

Hi Experts,

I am looking for a way to validate CO-PA characteristics, for instance customer number, when posting in FI with CO-PA assignment, so FB50, FB60 etc..

I have created a separate validation step in transaction OB28 call point 2, which calls a user exit in a Z-program. Currently I can only find values in structures BKPF, BSEG and COBL, which all do not have any CO-PA characteristics. Anyhow I have BSEG-PAOBJNR available but do not know to which table or structure I should reference it. As far as I can see it is table CE4XXXX_ACCT only filled after the update, so not during the validation. Or do I need to use a different call point?

Has anyone a hint for me?

Kind regards,

    As far as I remember, CE4XXXX_ACCT will be filled before. You can refer to this thread, where similar problem was presented.

    Hi Eli,

    thank you for your answer. I have checked that thread before but unfortunately it has not helped me. I am not sure that is meant by "temporary table CE4xxxx_ACCT" because table CE4XXXX_ACCT is only updated after the posting and the table is not known in the FI validation exit. I tried also by declaring it with a table statement but it is still empty. Maybe a different kind of validation was used. Therefore I need to get the details.

    Kind regards
