Characteristic derived Update Rules

Hi guys,

I have to make the update rules for a DSO.

Among characteristics there is one that should by derived from the master data table of another characteristic. Even more, this attribute is time-dependent.

So, let's say for characteristic zstatus I:

<li>checked the Master Data Attribute of</li>

<li>selected the deriving characteristic zdoc</li>

<li>clicked the Time Dependency button</li>

<li>checked the End radio button</li>

<li>selected 0CALDAY from the Frm match code button</li>

<li>Closed all modal windows and activated the update rules</li>

After both, master data bearing characteristics and transaction data were uploaded, the results were far from what I expected to be, as you can see below:

<li>zdoc Master data</li>

Comp Code BP Ref. no Valid-to Valid-from Document_date Net_duedate Status

RO20 90000724 342342 11.11.2008 01.01.1000 21.11.2008 20.9.2007

RO20 90000724 342342 20.11.2008 12.11.2008 21.11.2008 20.9.2007 1

RO20 90000724 342342 31.12.9999 21.11.2008 21.11.2008 20.9.2007 2

<li>Transaction data [ DSO ]</li>

Comp Code BP Ref. no Document date Status Document Type Amount 0CALDAY

RO20 90000724 342342 5.9.2007 X 119,00 5.9.2007

RO20 90000724 342342 5.9.2007 1 I 119,00 21.11.2008

RO20 90000724 342342 5.9.2007 1 X 119,00 21.11.2008

Well, I expected the Status column in the DSO table [ the bolded column to get the value 2 after deriving the zdoc characteristic on 0CALDAY, during data loading process, however, it takes the value 1 in turn.

I'm not sure, I'm clear in my explanations...if there is someone who understood my pain, and tell me what's wrong with my update rules I would appreciate.

Kind Regards!

    After updating the data, did you perform a hierarchy/attribute change run or "activate" the master data for your lookup object? Also, check in the "Q" table of the master date lookup object, all of those records should be in the table and active.
