Hello Experts,

One small query regarding the Valid attribute in the Master data types in IBP. In MDTs - Location, Customer and Product we have the attributes LOCVALID, CUSTVALID and PRDVALID respectively. What should the the desired value of this 'X' or Blank?

Does 'X' - means valid and Blank means not valid? If its is Blank then will it not be considered for planning purpose. I want to know the impact of the VALID attribute. I checked in the Sample data in the IBP best practice- for some MDT it is 'X' and for some it is Blank - a bit confusing.

What is the impact of the LOCVALID, CUSTVALID and PRDVALID attribute and what should be the desired values?

Hi Basu

Valid value is "X" and if it is blank it won't consider in planning run. You can test it yourself by have both situations and compare the results.

Hi Ankur,

I updated the Master data with 'X' checkbox. But the combinations without 'X' is also considered for planning.

I am a bit confused about the usability of this 'X' field.
