SEM BCS: Breakdown Category & Movement Type

Hi! All,

1. how is it possible to assign a different Brekdown for Cons Unit and Cons. Profit Center....having the same role of Cons Unit..?

2.Is it a good idea to create a separate movement type...copy of 120 or just save Movement type 120 as default? Does Movement Type also need to be included in Elimination Method to facilitate elim. posting?

Thanks for your clarification.

    Hi Victor,

    1. Breakdown category, AFAIK, is assigned to FS items, not to CUs or CPCs. So, your question is not clear.

    2. Movement type for BS items by default is 100. MoveType is used just for separating different transactions as a additional analytic char. In case of data load the sign of the MoveType may play its role.

    Nothing more.

    Regarding the "Ref. yr already exists" errror - I answered to you in your other question.

    Please be more precise in formulation of your questions. Otherwise, even for some experienced people it was hard to understand what you were talking about.

    Best regards,

      Thanks, Eugene...

      I was referring to assigning of "Breakdown Type" while creating Breakdown category, to Trading Partner and PArtner Cons.Profit Center. They have the same role of Cons. Unit in Data Model and hence, the system does not allow to assign different "Breakdown Types" to each. If

      one has "Required Breakdown: Entry is forced, default not allowed", the other needs to be the same.Since I am using Dummy Profit Center for now...I wanted to use different "Breakdown Types" in breakdown category for Trading Partner and Cons. Profit Center....

      2. In the Two sided Inter Unit Elimination at posting level 20, I select the accoutns to be eliminated and in "Differences"section choose Post differences to "Unit with Lowe value at KEy figure or attribute" and define the Accounts where differences need to be posted. However, when I run the Elimination Task,(Cons. Unit A, A/R say 5000, Cons. Unit B - A/P say 3000 with each being Trading Partner of the other), the result I get is that the System shows the Total Difference as 8000 and puts that in the Account specified for posting Differences. I use the Standard MEthod layout 05510...what could be the possible reason or miss in config. steps.....

      I will be more precise in formulating the questions......

      Thanks for your input..
