Cost Element Accounting DataSources

Hi there,

what's the most straightforward means to extract and load the data of CO <i>Cost Element Accounting</i>?

In fact the Business Content extractor hierarchy has a node called <i>Cost and Revenue Element Accounting</i> (CO-OM-CEL), however no DataSource is in there.

How can the postings to the CO cost elements be fetched?

Thanks, Davide">Davide>

    • Hi,

      Roberto's reference is very interesting.

      Even though I disagree with Vodi's statement that <i>cost element accounting is an integral part of cost center accounting</i> (in fact, the quoted documentation says that <i>Cost Element accounting is</i> an <i>area of <u>cost accounting</u></i>), and that Cost Element Accounting BCT objects are the same as the cost center accounting BCT, that thread has provided me some useful hints to find what I need.

      IMHO, Cost Element Accounting (CEL) data are provided by the union of Cost Center Accounting (CCA) and Overhead Orders (OPA) DataSources. In particular, I'm interested in line item data, i.e. 0CO_OM_CCA_9 - Cost Centers: Actual Costs - Line Items (Delta) and 0CO_OM_OPA_6 - Orders: Actual Cost Line Items (Delta) DataSources.

      Only if you stage the data from both these DataSource you'll be able to provide a report in BW similar to ERP's KSB5 - CO Documents: Actual Costs (SAP menu -> Accounting -> Controlling -> Cost Element Accounting -> Information System -> Reports for Cost and Revenue Element Accounting -> Document Display -> KSB5 - CO Documents: Actual Costs).

      Any further comment will be welcomed!

      Cheers, Davide">Davide>

    Hi Davide,

    I was wondering if you could work with the datasource under component CO-OM-CEL.

    In my BW system and ERP system, I don't have any objects.

    Those links didn't work.

    ERP side has those versions:

    SAP_BASIS 700 0028 SAPKB70028 Sistema Base SAP

    SAP_ABA 700 0028 SAPKA70028 Componente multiaplicaciones

    SAP_BW 700 0030 SAPKW70030 SAP NetWeaver BI 7.0

    BW side has those versions.

    SAP_BASIS 731 0005 SAPKB73105 Sistema Base SAP

    SAP_ABA 731 0005 SAPKA73105 Componente multiaplicaciones

    PI_BASIS 731 0005 SAPK-73105INPIBASIS Plug-in de Base

    BI_CONT 747 0002 SAPK-74702INBICONT Business Intelligence Content

    SAP_BW 731 0005 SAPKW73105 SAP Business Warehouse

    Thanks in advance!
