COPA Problem for one characteristic on Sales Orders

We have a characteristic, Sales Order Billing Block, that is not part of the Profitability Segment. I am having some problems where sometimes changes to this field on the order writes to CE1, sometimes it does not, and sometimes when it does, it's not the right values.

For the sake of simplicity in the scenario below, I am only counting the B0 records.

Let me see if can explain you the steps and the results I am getting.

  • VA02 - Change billing block from X1 to X2 - Two records on CE1, old X1, new X2 <- GOOD

  • Change billing block from X2 to X3 -- No records written to CE1 <-NOT GOOD

  • Change billing block from X3 to X4 -- No records written to CE1 <-NOT GOOD

  • Exit VA02

  • VA02 Change billing block from X4 to X5 - Two records written to CE1, old is X2, new is X4. <-NOT GOOD

Can someone explain why these "NOT GOOD" results are happening?

    Hi Castles

    I dont know what is your purpose behind doing this, but I would like to advise you against doing this

    You will drastically increase the line items in CE1 table and its not good for the system performance..

    I am not sure what would you achieve by flowing billing block into COPA.... But, try to avoid it

    Now coming to your question, ideally, after each time you save VA02, it must update CE1 table.. Save VA02 after each change... Come out and check CE1.... If thats not happening, you can raise an OSS msg
