odp1 dip profie - Quote>planned totals, not picking Work Center or Plant?

Hi Guru's

My issue is that I am not able to get the dip profile when running dp82 to pick up the characteristics - Work Center and Plant:Work Center.

I have configured the following:


Quoteation and Sales Pricing

*Characteristics *

Activity Type - Char Rel. / Mat Determ/ Structuring

Cost Element - Char Rel. / Mat Determ/ Structuring

Material - Char Rel./Mat Determ/ No Summ/ Structuring

Plant of Work Center - Char Rel./Mat Determ/ No Summ/

Work Center - Char Rel./Mat Determ/ No Summ/

Stat. key figure - Char Rel./Mat Determ/ Sturcturing/


Planned stat.ind - Totals

Planned costs - Totals (no specific selection criteria for sources)

Currently for material determination, i have not used the characteristic of plant of work center because it gives me an error that the combination can't be found because sap does not seem to be picking up the plant of work center from the planned get by, If I set material determination to activity type only (from work center) I can pick up the material....but I have a requirement to pull work center plant into determination. When I run DP82 on the expenses tab, and I double click on the activity type and material number, it shows me the data that generated the material number - Network Activity, Trans Curr, Cost Element, Activity Type...the other fields are blank - work center and Plant: work center

Any ideas on why even though I have selected Plant: work center as characteristic releveant / mat determination/ No summ...the DIP does not pull that information ? Is it an SAP limitation due to this being planned to - total records? Or am I missing something?

Hopefully my post is detailed enough for someone to advise quickly.



Looks like these items won't be brought in as characteristics unless planned via ECP? If this is the case, very impractical!

    - The criteria for selection of sources should also be from some of the characteristics you maintained in order for the system to pick up only that relevant cost.

    - I am not sure whether Workcenter & its Plant give you consistent value processing for Planned cost totals but "Activity Type" & "Cost Element" shall do it.

      Hi Krisap

      thanks again for your feedback.

      we eventually got this solved yesterday..we did have that exit in mind but were not sure how we could get the work center plant as a characteristic populated . Ended up using a user defined characteristic to get wrk center plant populated since that does not come standard (only if planning via ECP)..... then we used the exit you mentioned to replace the line item.

      we do project work where we utilize other resources (equipment or labor) from other sap plants on our projects - only the n/w activities that are 'interfacility' should pull the work center for sales pricing onto lines.

      Regards. and Thanks for taking the time to respond.
