Costing sheet mass update for Activities using CNMASS

Hi,

Is it possible to do a mass update for the costing sheet field in multiple activities? We tried to use tcode CNMASS but we weren't able to find the costing sheet in the Activities tab as a valid selection criteria. Is there a way to make this field available in CNMASS? We have around 10,000 activities whose Costing Sheet needs to be changed. We want to know if the project master data update should be done somewhere else. CATT script is another option that we're looking at but it looks very complicated right now.

Thanks a lot!

Joey

    Hi,

    In my opinion, WBS costing sheet will be given preference during overhead calc over costing sheet at network activity. So try changing WBS costing sheet by mass chnage, test run overhead calc to validate.

    Hello Joey

    CNMASS does not have the field and there are easier ways of doing this than trying to add the field to the program

    In your case:

    If you have ABAP help

    1) Easiest way is to record the transaction in SHDB and run them in background for all the 10000 activities.

    2) Or as suggested above use that BAPI or BAPI_PROJECT_MAINTAIN to correct the activities.

    If you do not have ABAP help

    The catt scripts will be the easiest option. Half an hour tinkering with catt can be useful to you in many ways.

    Hi Everyone,

    Thanks for the responses. We decided to create a custom program instead to accommodate the requirement. Apparently, there is really no way to modify the Costing Sheet of the Network Activities using CNMASS.

    Thanks and regards,

    Joey
