    Dear colleague,

    you create the field in yoru dictionary and in MC19 you define the field catalog including that field.

    once you have defined your field catalog in MC19 you can choose the field catalag in MC21 when you create yoru own information structure.

    You have to create the infromation structure for the same application of the field catalog.

    In the field catalog (MC19) you can deifne the source table and field of your key figure. This inforamtion will be displayed in MC21and MC22.

    best regards.

    Hi Maria

    If the field is 'z' field and table is also z does it reflect in MC18 or MC19?
