'Activities' in BCS- how are they generated?

Hi gurus,

Activities in BCS (as per the activity sequence) are they part of the transactional data being generated at posting level 30? If yes how does the system come to know that this is the activity which needs to be executed. For example if there has been a partial divestiture how will the system come to know that this activity has occured and how the corresponding activity for partil divestiture (10) will be identified so that it can be written to the data.

The activity numbers- are they system genererated or we have to supply the same as part of reported data of AFSD?

Pleaes advise.

    Yes, activities are related to posting level 30 consolidation of investments (COI) postings. (There may be other posting level 30 documents as well.)

    The COI configuration of location of values determines whether these are generated from totals, additional financial data or both. For additional financial data (AFD) it is entered or loaded into BCS separate from the source ledger totals data. So, as in your example of partial divestiture, if location of values for investments is AFD it will be entered or loaded with the corresponding activity of partial divestiture. If location of values is totals records, in this case, the COI configuration defines what combination of item and subassignments (typically movement type) corresponds to this activity, and when there is activity to this item and subassignment combination, the activity is triggered. In both cases the resulting COI partial divestiture postings will be the same.

    The activity numbers are delivered with the BCS system.
