Characteristics associated with SD billing documents flow to COPA

While we post SD billing documents the relevant characteristics are also flowing to COPA but how?

I need to understand the sap process of saving the data against characteristics or how characteristics are linked to value filed at the back end. When we pull the COPA report how system pull data based on characteristics. System derives data when we pull the report but somehow system save the data somewhere based on the characteristics. I don't know if my question is clear or not but if someone answer it would be a great help. Conditions are linked to value fields but how link to characteristics is made, my rough idea is when we post document the relevant characteristics fields are also flagged for reporting.

    Aziz,

    CO-PA characteristics could be fixed (automatically delivered by SAP) or user-defined thru transaction KEA5, the first ones has it own standard derivations rules and the second group have it configured in transaction KEDR.

    Hope it helps.

    Best regards.

    Thanks for your reply. I do understand the fixed and user defined. Again, how characteristics are flowing to COPA. Are they flowing from the documents we are posting and only those will flow which are on that documents and we have setting in place.
