    In order to use GLPLUP first of all a planning layout needs to be created which has the charateristics and key figures exactly matching with the excel file. For example Company code, GL Account and Profit Center as characteristics and amount in local currency as key figure.

    This planning layout needs to be entered into a planner profile. Standard profile can be copied and then the totals table (for example FLGLFLEXT) where the planning figures are going to be uploaded is mentioned in the planner profile.

    Before using the t-code GLPLUP the planner profile is entered. This way the system will know that the excel file format is the same as that in the planner profile entered. If the format does not match it will issue an error message.
