Difference between APO key figures and BW key figures

Hi experts,

what exactly is the difference between APO and BW key figures? is it only about fixing or it has other impacts?

Is it possible to use them in the same way for planning in DP? is it possible to run BEx with BW KF?

thanks,

Michele

    Hi Michele,

    APO keyfigures can be used for fixing and changes made to these can be saved. where as the BW keyfigures are strictly for display purpose.

    APO is not used for reporting as it is basically a planning systema nd cannot take that reporting load. so you extract data to an independent BW system or a third party system and then report. You can always run BEx on a BW keyfigure.

    Refer to this [post|apo-bw-keyfigure] for more details.

    Unfortunate, but you cannot distinguish between a BW and APO keyfigure once they are created.
