Questions regarding the copy os consolidation versions

Hi guys,

I need your opinion regarding the most appropriate method to implement the copy of consolidation versions in BCS.

I already made the first approach. I have created 4 tasks. One to documents, other for reported financial data, another for investments and finally one for changes in Investee equity.

All seems working fine till I noticed that the documents task didnu2019t copy all document types. Besides the first question, do you know what may be happening?

Thanks in advance.

    In the copy methodd/task for documents have all the corresponding tasks/document types been defined? If not, try that.

    Hi

    Copy can be performed for documents upto PL10. Copying beyond PL10 documents is not possible. The best way is to create the document types instead of copying them.

    Thanks

    João Arvanas,

    Kiran's answer is correct if you use the BCS release lower than SEM-BCS 6.0 with Enchancement Package lower (if at all) than 2.

    EhP2 and 3 give a possibility to copy all documents and totals records. Cannot see it in the system right now, but in the copy task you have a possibility to assign somewhat like a type of execution: for a ConsUnit, for a pair of companies, independent of ConsGroups. All in four options. These options serve as restrictions to which documents are copied.

    And more than that, I wasn't able to copy totals and documents from one data basis to another one if the basises are different by the set of infoobjects. Only copying within the same data basis and different versions is not painful.

    • In the sytem the selection is not for document type but including the tasks associated with certain document types may help.

      Additionally there is the processing type selection to determine whether the copy is per cons unit, two-sided, per cons group, or independent of cons unit/group.
