Creation of Selections as seen in transaction /SAPAPO/MSDP_FCST2

Hi All,

Could someone remind me how selections are created that can be seen in transaction /SAPAPO/MSDP_FCST2. If you select F4 on the selection field in the Assign Forecst Profile Screen, it will list all of the current slections that are created. I know this is updated when you execute a forcast against a specific cvc, but how can you do a mass update of this... for 10K + cvs?

I though I would be able to do this in a backround job, but it does not seem to work?

    You can create a selection from respective 10+ CVCs in the planning book.

    These selection will avaiable in the transaction /SAPAPO/MSDP_FCST2. You can select the respective selection and assign the FCST profile which you want for this selection.

    While defining a background job , you can define the master FCST profile which has to be used.

    Also in control parameters, check the flag Always use job profille

    Indicator: Always Use Forecast Profile of the Job

    If you wish this forecast profile to be used always with this selection when the forecast is run, check this box. You specify the selection in the mass processing job. Otherwise, the system uses the forecast profiles that have already been assigned to any selection contained in the mass processing job. You can display and change these assignments in the Assign Forecast Profiles transaction (Demand Planning -> Environment -> Assign a Forecast Profile to a Selection).


    If you set this indicator, you cannot use the functions that automatically generate and assign forecast profiles, Generate a profile and assign it or Generate new profile on error.

    I hope this will give you to fulfill you requirment. Please let us know if you have any more doubts.

      Hello Paul,

      Did you get an answer to you question?

      How did you create large number of selections which can be viewed/accessed to do forecast profile assignments in /SAPAPO/MSDP_FCST2.

      I have a similar situation and any help would be much appreciated.
