I have both costing based and account based CO-PA active in the development system and want to transport the operating concern. In KE3I transaction I have to choose between costing-based and account based COPA. Do I need to generate the transport twice, first for costing-based and then for account-based CO-PA or is it enough when I only generate the transport for costing-based CO-PA?

With best regards,

Hi Robert,
When you use tcode KE3I to do the transport you will need to use two requests: one is workbench and the other one is customizing. The workbench request will contain the CO-PA structures, the customizing request will contain the customizing data.
In CO-PA, Customizing consists of cross-client settings (such as tables and data elements) and client-specific settings (such as Customizing value flows). Two request categories are usually used in the SAP System:
Customizing requests -
Workbench requests -

Please also check this URL -, very good explanation.
