    You cannot assign comapny code directly to operatign concern. You should assign it to controling area which in turns assgined to opearting concern.

    Regarding value fields, you can use the existing ones or create user defined value fields and assign to condition types or based on the requirment.

    assign points if helpful

    Go to tcode KEA6 and choose whether u want to create a value field or characteristic. If u want to create value field then it must start with a prefix of VV and characteritics should start with WW.

    In the initial screen enter ur operating concern and choose value field from operating concern. This give a initial warning and press enter. Go to the overview screen of the value filed and press create button.

    Enter the name of the value field and press activate. This will activate the value field u created.

    U need to follow the same for the creation of characteristics also. Here u will get a pop up screen from which u have an option of creating a characters either from the standard table or user defined.

    If u are selecting user defined option then enter the name for the characteristic and activate it.

    If the characteristic created by you is not from a standard SAP field then u need to do characteristic derivation so that the created characteristic derive values using tcode KEDR.
