    Hi Karl,

    I concur with Anjali's reply but chip in with my 2 cents.

    Q1:what is the difference between the Queue Manager and Delta Report to track the data transfer?

    Queue Manager is to check inbound and outbound queues to SAP systems. It is used to monitor any queues be it for initial transfer, change transfer, master or transaction data. On the other hand Delta Report allows you to compare and then trigger reconciliation of transaction data between APO and R/3 only. Delta Report is not applicable for Master Data.

    Q2: what is the difference of PPM and Production Version?

    PPM contains BOM and Routing/Recipe information of R/3. Each Production Version maps to a Routing and BOM combination along with Lot Size and Date validity. Hence Production Version corresponds better to PPM in APO. You can have additional BOMs and Routing sbut if they are not used in Production Version they are not available in APO for Planning as PPMs.

    Hope this helps.
