BBP_UPDATE_ATTRIBUTES - can only overwrite an attr?

Hi there.

SRM 4.0.

The import parameters for this FM are:

USER_ID_P

ORGUNIT_ID_P

SCENARIO_P

START_DATE_P

END_DATE_P

REPLACE_P

It seems, that no matter if I set the REPLACE_P or do not set it, either way it will delete the attribute in the PPOMA. Why can't this FM append an attribute? I want to update the attribute CNT to allow users to have several different cost centers, but one should be default. I am simply wondering, what purpose the REPLACE_P actually has here, because it is changing the existing attribute either way...

    • Hi. I presume your batch job is entirely custom? You could add a call transaction to add the extra cost centre based on transaction PP01 (or PO13) and then selecting the "General Attribute Maint." option and change, then "Edit > New Entries" in the menu at the top.

      Regards,

      Dave.
