Key Figure/Account based model

Hi there-

could anyone give me some detailed documentation on key figure and account based model. I would like to explain the Account based model to the useres to let them better understand the creation of restricted keyfigures.

Thank you!!

Sabine

    Hi Sabine,

    of the differences between account based CO-PA and costing-based CO-PA that there is no delta extraction. There is also 1 other rule. You can only select 1 fiscal-period. The set-up is similar to costing based CO-PA.

    The big difference between Account Based CO-AP and Costing Based CO-PA is of course the data is stored in the CO Modules.

    Account based CO-PA is part of the CO concept. This means when you post to a cost element the data is posted to a CO-module (CCA, OPA, PA, PS etc). The way the data is stored is also different from costing based PA.

    The CO tables like COEP, COBK (for the individual item are used and the COSS and COSP are used for the totals.

    The object where the posting are related to they are stored in the CE4... table. So if you want to analyse the data there is 1 keyfigure and the cost-element is a characteristic (account model).

    COsting Based CO-PA data is statistical data. This means that the update of CO-PA is not always equal to what is stored in the CO modules or in finance. The cost element is also not always updated and there are also more key-figures used to store info about the type of costs or revenues. Tables as CE1, CE2 , CE3 and CE4 are used.

    Extraction for Account Based CO-PA is only based on the total records (full loads are only possible). For costing based CO-PA there it is possible work with init and delta packages and also to select data from the individual postings databases (CE1, CE2).

    The way you generate the extractor is similar.

    Hopelfully this gives you a bit more background of the CO-PA module.

    Assign points if it helps...

    The question of whether to have key fig mode or characterstic model come when you have a requirement to report on multiple key figures like plan commitment, actual, etc. In such a scenerio, you have the option of either having so many key figures in the cube ( and in the report) or just have one key fig and distinguish them with a characterisic. The first one if called key fig model and the second one is called characteristic model.

    If you have characteristic model you need to either have that may charactristic of that many values with in a characteristic , for example multiple values in version or value type.
