COPA, how to derive Profit Segment as a characteristic

In COPA I created a characteristic u201CSegmentu201D to report on the Profit Center Segment. I am trying to use Define Characteristic Derivation, T-code KEDR to derive and populate the Profit Center Segment characteristic.

I did the following: use u201CTable Lookupu201D and link it to table CEPC.

1) In the source field the following 3 fields appear and I mapped them to COPA fields:

CEPC-PRCTR Profit Center

CEPC-DATBI Valid To Date

CEPC-KOKRS Controlling Area

2) In the "Assignment of table fields to target fields" section I mapped the CEPC-Segment field to the COPA "Segment" characteristic .

The problem is it does not derive the Segment!

Am I doing something wrong?

Is this the best way to determine the Profit Segment?

Have you seen this before?

Any help will be highly appreciated!!

    Select the Derivation rule and Press F8 to test it

    Enter the Profit Center and Click on "Derivate".... Then Click on "Analyze Derivation"... Now go to your derivation step

    You will come to know why your Derivation rule is not successful

    I think the valid to date is not supplied during the transaction... May be you can map CEPC-DATBI to Global - UserTemp1
