Forecast Model value changed to blank, 'W' or T without change logs.

Forecast model value is changed automatically to blank, 'W', 'T' when WC26, MD70 programs are run in batch. Model Selection value is also change to 'A'.

The issue is also that there are no logs getting maintained.

    Change logs are only created for manual changes, e.g. when the user does an update in the view using MM02

    The field help explains that you can enter the value manually and that it can be set from the system using a model selection.

    So it has to be assumed that it was set from the system if you have no change log.

    For the model selection is an extra field in the forecast screen further down in the control data section.

    Hello Jurgen,

    Thank you for the reply but It still does'nt give me clarity.

    If I run a bdc or bapi in background mode, it changes the material master and provides change logs. But when the forecast tcodes like MD70 are run in a batch , it changes the values but does not update logs. Why ?

    I have also tried searching for any sap note, but I dont see any pertaining to the transactions that I run.

    Any further help will be grateful.

    IF you run a BDC or a BAPI then you are actually doing a kind of MM02, but MD70 does not do the change in a MM02 sense, it is more like a price change for a moving average price which constantly changes with a goods receipt or invoice receipt, also without any change logs.

    It is the SAP design, they have programmed it this way, you won't change it.
