    Hi Nico,

    You can use the following methods to activate BC Sets-

    --Choose Tools -> Customizing -> Business Configuration Sets ->Activation in the SAP menu,


    --enter the transaction code SCPR20 in the command field.

    --Enter the name of the BC Set which you want to activate.

    --Choose Bus.Conf.Set-> Activate or the Activate pushbutton.

    The following Activation Options dialog gives you information about the activation. The Activation Options dialog contains all activation-relevant information. There is no longer a Simulation function pushbutton. The simulation is implicit, i.e. any problem messages are shown in the Messages field in the Activation Options dialog.

    -Some additional info

    To simulate an activation:

    Choose a BC Set in the activation transaction (SCPR20).

    Choose the Activate pushbutton or the menu path BC Set ? Activate

    If the BC Set contains variable values, you are prompted for them. Enter the values and confirm your entries with the Copy Values pushbutton.

    Choose the Cancel with Log pushbutton in the following activation option dialog.


    The message Activation simulated appears in the status row.

    You can see the activation simulation log with the Activation Log pushbutton.

    The dialog also tells you the:


    Activation date

    Source system

    Target system

    Target client

    System request

    Customizing request

    Activation links

    Activation language

    You can:

    Overwrite data: You can specify whether default values are to be overwritten by the activation, i.e. whether all the values of the BC Set are written into the system tables by the activation (possibly overwriting values in the system tables), or only the values with the fix attribute are overwritten.

    In this way, you can overwrite only the global values from company headquarters, without affecting the local default valuese, in a global rollout with BC Sets.

    Select activation mode: If you have the required authorization, you can activate in expert mode.

    Enter the transport request number when asked for a Customizing transport request and choose Continue.

    If the BC Set contains non-customizing-relevant data, e.g. master data, you are prompted for two transport requests. Enter both numbers and choose Continue.

    If some fields in a BC Set are defined as Variable, the Enter Variables dialog box appears. All fields which were given the Variable (Get Value) attribute when the BC Set was created, and are flagged with this icon in the table, are listed here. If several data records in one of these fields have the same values, the name of this field only appears once in the dialog box. The Value column contains the default values. If the values are different for each data record, the default value is displayed in the Value column for each data record. You can overwrite proposed values and choose Copy Values.

    One default value is usually the current value of the BC Set. If the user has already changed the value, the last value entered is proposed.

    If there are short texts for the data records in the Variable Field Text tab, they appear at activation in the Value column instead of the original field names.

    A warning that original tables are overwritten by activation of BC Sets appears. Choose one of the following three options:

    1. To proceed with the activation, choose Activation.

    If several BC Sets are being activated, only those which have not yet sent an error message are activated.

    2. To simulate activation, choose Simulation.

    Simulation tests part of the activation procedure and creates an activation log. The log tells the user whether the simulated activation reached a certain point. A successful simulation does not guarantee the success of a subsequent activation. The errors in a simulation would occur during activation.

    Simulations write no data in customizing tables or transports.

    3. To cancel the activation, choose Cancel.

    The system checks for key conflicts in the BC Set.

    Key conflicts occur if there are two data records in a hierarchical BC Set with the same key but different values. In this case it is not clear which of the values is to be put in the original tables. The activation is cancelled if key conflicts occur.

    Best Regards,
