    Hi Nilesh.

    Yes it is definitely possible.

    4 key set up steps to acheive your requirements.

    1. Create a transfer profile (SAPAPO/MC8U) for the key figure you want to transfer

    2. Create a planning book/data view that controls the period and periodicity of what you want to send to ECC. (e.g., 3 months in weekly buckets)

    3. Create an activity (/SAPAPO/MC8T) against that planning book/data view using the R3 Transfer Profile tab where you assign the transfer profile.

    4 Create a job (/SAPAPO/MC8D) to which you assign the activity and where you define the selection to be transferred.

    When running, some prerequisites you need to be aware of:

    - Product/Locations must be maintained in APO

    - If you are not using 9ALOCNO and 9AMATNR as your characteristics for Location and Material you must assign the characteristics you are using for Location and Materials to the Planning Object Structure in /SAPAPO/MSDP_ADMIN. Open the PLOB and in Edit->Assign Product/Location enter the characteristics.

    Hope this helps. M.

      Hello Percx,

      Sorry for late reply.

      I have checked the details which you have given.

      As per your suggestion, we have Transfer profile, Activity and jobs already created.

      In our planning book there is data veiw which is showing bucket of 66 months duration.

      Now I would like to ask you here if I will change the data veiw (i.e 3 months bucket) in planning book what are the impact on my planning and transfer forcast.

      How my planning book will behave and how much months data will transfer to ECC(R3)..

      We are using process chain for transfer the date from APO to ECC.

      should we use the same or we have to create individual job for the forcast transfer.

      Thanks a lot for your great help....

      Best Regards,

      Nilesh Ithape.
