This is the error message.

Error in CO-PA valuation: quantity unit is missing

Message no. KE482


In Profitability Analysis (CO-PA), the system tried to valuate the document using costing sheet OMET01, as defined in valuation strategy OM3. Condition values there are to be calculated on the basis of the quantity field ABSMG. In CO-PA valuation strategy OM3, this quantity field was assigned to costing sheet OMET01.

The quantity unit is missing for the quantity field ABSMG. This unit is required in order to perform the valuation.


1. If this error message appeared during manual line item entry in CO-PA, enter a quantity unit manually in the unit field for CO-PA quantity field ABSMG_ME.

2. If this message appeared when you created a document in FI or MM, check Customizing for CO-PA whether the quantity is supposed to be transferred to the CO-PA quantity field ABSMG for the cost elements to which the posting is made.
