Cost Center Substitution Rule in GGB1 - Activation step?


Our business is doing a mass-change on Assets in AR01, and they need two new substitution rules. I can create the rules just fine (it seems) in GGB1, but when I transport those to QA, they are not available in AR01. When I go to OACS to try to activate the substitution (though the one available in AR01 is not listed there), I get the message "Substitution CRICTRB is assigned to class 33, and not to class 30".

What am I missing here? It's got to be something simple.

    I was not aware of the assignment of the substitutions to a company code in OA02.

    Performing this assignment made the substitution rules available in AR01.

    Thank you all for your help and suggestions.

    Hi Steve,

    Can you look at the content of the transport you created? Does it make sense?

    Otherwise, I'd try and transport the substitution one more time. RGUGBR00 can be indeed helpful, but only if the transport was consistent. As transport of substitution is not generated automatically, it is possible that it was not created with sufficient data.

    • Well, in SE01, SE10 or any other relevant transaction, you can see the content of the transport. For substitution, it would be mainly tables GB9* (unless you've had some user-exits) and for these tables, you can see which keys were included.

      For rules, check specifically the following tables:

      GB906 Rule: Usage of Rules in Rules
      GB907 Rule: Usage of Rules in Substitutions

    Steve - it's been several years since I've done this - but searching, I found this blog and it suggests to run program RGUGBR00 - read the whole blog. Good luck

    • Tammy,

      Thank you so much for the reply, but running the program and regenerating the Substitutions and Validations did not make the new substitutions available in AR01

      Still a mystery.
