Changes to a planning book vs. planning area re-initialization

Dear experts

If you change a APO DP planning book as follows:

- Add two key figures into the planning book (both key figures exist already in the planning area)

- Create one new macro in the same planning book

Would a transport from TEST to PROD such a change require a re-initialization of the planning area and a new activation? I hope not (it is only a view, not the planning area itself).

P.S.: This is a SCM 4.0 system.

Thanks for your feedback,

Eivind

    Yes you are correct. Transporting Planning books do not require re-initialization of planning area. you can transport the planning books using /SAPAPO/TSOBJ transaction

    Hi,

    You are thinking correctly.If you add any key figure in to Planning Area,then you have to transport info Object(KF) first & then changes in to Planning Area.You can hide,add,Remove KF from Planning Book & data View,if your key figure already available in the Planning Area.

    But your Dev. & Production Client should be same.If your doing this changes directly in to Production,then you should do this changes in the Dev. Client also.

    Regards

    Dear Eivind,

    You do not need to de/re initialize the PA for the changes you have done. You have made changes to the PB and the key figures used already exist in the Planning Area. So, there is no change to the PA. All you need to do is to create a transport for your Planning Book and the macros will automatically be included.

    Regards,
