Merge two credit control area in SAP

Dear All,

I need help to know, what is the impact analysis to merge two credit control areas in SAP?

In my business we have two CCAs, what things need to be considered to merge them and keep either one of them active for business. Currently both CCAs are functional.

Secondly, what would be the standard approach to merge them into one.

  • Hi,

    Do you have multiple company codes for both credit control areas ?

    What is the business reason for merging into one?

  • Hello,

    They are under one company code, same customer has different credit limits in both CCAs.

    If one of the CCA limit is exhausting business could not utilize another CCA limit as both business lines are supported with single business.

    This the reason they wanted to mearge now.

    Let me know if you have few more questions.

    I see the impact mainly on current open transactions (Sales Order, Deliveries, etc) and open FI positions (Customer receivables).

    Is this approach of merging of Credit Control Areas aligned with Finance Business & IT Teams? I would expect to execute such re-organization of SAP Organization elements at Quarter or most probably at Fiscal Year end. I would also expect a system downtime during execution of RFDKLI20 report (explained below).

    I would suggest to make a latest copy of your Production system in a separate client in Test / Development and then execute this merging of Credit Control Areas. Before the change take back up of figures from KNKK Table and other ledger balances with help of FI Colleagues.

    Once the Customizing is done, you will have to execute report RFDKLI20 to re-create SD & FI Data. Depending on the volumes and open transactions in your system the report can take hours to execute and generate logs.

    After the execution of the Report, you would surely like to compares the new values in KNKK with earlier values (total of both Credit Control areas).
