Could someone please share FMs which could be used to read and change data present in a variant (i.e. a combination of LAUFD and LAUFI) for transaction EL18 (meter read estimation) ?

I need to change the values present in MRU field of variant through a separate program before the variant is executed.

Hello Ankit

Do you need Function Modules to Imitate / Incorporate the same actions as Trx. "EL18"? Or are you just looking for UserExits and BAdI's?

The Utilities-Wiki pages are pretty well-formed and offer the following :

So can't you just implement one (or more) UserExits to Influence your data?

See if You can get something working by Checking SAP-customizing :

SPRO > Financial Accounting > Contract Accounts Receivables and payables > Technical Settings > Prepare Mass Activities ...

See MassRun-ID "MSCH" which normally corresponds to Trx. "EL18". See the associated Objects and you might want to experiment with a Custom Object or a Custom FunctionModule in "FQEVENTS"?

Besides Specific Events, there also are some General Events to Influence a MassActivity and its Parameters, but I have no real experience with them (As an Example you could see Event '1794' - FM 'ISU_SAMPLE_1794' - Mass Activity: Event Before Change to New Run ID.) and I would do some serious testing when Replacing the Default with a Custom-FM as this would probably affect all types of MassActivities ...

See the SAP-Wiki on FQEVENTS : / /

Hope this Helps
