    Hello Chandu,

    What exactly you want to load?

    Is it new cvc's or the key figure values?

    I believe that what you want is to load key figure values, in this case you'll need to have a excel sheet prepared to be loaded to APO. You can not simply load any sheet there.

    My recommendation is to take intially this step:

    Transaction /SAPAPO/SDP94, load a plannong book/data view, load a selection and load data to the planning grid.

    Now find the button right over the grid called "save locally", push it and a pop-up will appear, here make the option "prepare the file to upload" and save.

    Now use the saved file and this one can be used to be loaded for this planning book/data view.

    Hope this could help here.

    Thanks,

    Luiz GIani

      Hi,

      I think we have a number of valid suggestions shared by our friends. I would like to add one more to that which will give you a very powerful utility.

      You can quickly put together an ABAP program using function module BAPI_PBSRVAPS_CHANGEKEYFIGVAL2. This will enable you to directly upload data from a file into the planning book/planning area.

      The BAPI can do everything so how modular you wan the program is left to your innovation.

      Hope this helps.

      Thanks

    If you are using version APO 5.0 + then you can directly upload the data in planning book(planning area) from an excel file.

      Hello all,

      I have a follow up question to this discussion.

      I am trying to do something similar but my question is how do we manage to upload if the number of products are large. Say the transaction data which i receive from customer is at product level (least level) and i get 20-50 products , each with its own forecast for 1 year horizon, which is updated weekly.

      So is it feasible to ask planners to enter forecast values for each product and upload it one by one?

      What is the best way to upload the customer forecast key figure which we receive in excel sheets ( 30+) and each sheet with 10-50 different product)

      Please let me know if i am missing something fundamental here as i am relatively new to this field?

      Thank you ,

      Sai

    Hi Chandu,

    The best recommended practice is to upload directly into the planning book

    rather than in the planning area.

    If you upload it in the planning book, it indirectly gets uploaded in

    the planning area as well.

    Hence you can use /SAPAPO/SDP94 for this purpose

    Go to the POS (/n/sapapo/msdp_admin), right click, select 'Char combinations-Maintain'. Select "Create Characteristic Combinations" if already you hve created some CVCs. (If this is first time, choose "Create single Char Comb."). Choose any option other than "create manually". Now, chosse "From file" for the 'Load from' option and proceed. Please check the box for "Adjust Time series Objects".

    Hope this answers your question.

    Regards,

    Guru Charan.
