Planning Area initialization


I am currently using APO 4.1, and wanting to automate the re-initializing of planning area via background jobs. The intention is to re-initlaize the planning area every month, thereby ensuring the timestream exists from the current month +12 monts (for example). However there are 1 or more key figures that I only need to extend + 6months rather than 12. I relaise there is the option called Maintain Key Figure horizons, but how to you maintain these in a variant that want to dyamically calculate the start and end dates. has anyone done this?

    Hi Paul,

    Can you check the fields P_KEYHO and P_PROCID in the variant attributes for report /SAPAPO/TS_PAREA_INITIALIZE. These are new fields and looks to be relevant for the keyfigure and the time horizon for that.

    I have not tried it out but hope this works.

    Actually looking through the report code and OSS notes to dig further.

    Hello Pual

    Just some remark using key figure specific horizon furing re-initilization.

    This function contain some bugs, so you have better to check following SAP Notes. These notes are related to SCM4.1.

    SAP Notes 993572 / 963312 / 939270

    Best Regards

      thanks, as you were probably replying, I have just found the same OSS notes. the problem I have is that we are on SP13, but some of these notes so not seem to have been applied.
