Creating new charactersitic - which BW Application to assign?

Dear All,

I am creating a new characteristic in APO using the RSA1 transaction. After I've provided the name and the description, the system pops a window with following message:

Several BW changes are active in this system.

To which BW application should the object belong?



Which of the above options should be chosen?

What the implications?

Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi Visu,

    almost all the replies prefer APO as the type while creating Characteristics or Key Figures. But one reply in one of the posts says to use BW as a thumbrule.

    Need to know which one do you use and have you faced any problems with it?

      I don't think there would be any performance issues..but you are allowing edit in keyfigures that you really don't want to edit like oyu r past history that you load from cube to APO planning area.

      You can say that I will restrict editing in planning book...that's up to you. But that's the practice. Never tried to create all APO objects in my past it would be a headache to replace the keyfigure latter.
