OLI9BW - Setup of Billing Tables


I was wondering on why this program does not have any Parameter for Posting Date. What if I only want to extract a month worth of transactions for my INIT?

    Hi Jkyle,

    if you have only 1 number range for billing documents you can goto se16 table vbrk and select the documents in the desired time frame, take the lowest and the highest no. as input for oli9bw.

    Another option is, run the full setup and setup your datasource, to have posting date or billing date (fkdat) as a select option. Then you can limit the amout of data at extraction time.

      Hi Siggi,

      Thanks for the answer. Unfortunately, option 1 (number range) wont be sufficient since we have more than 1 number range in use. (Actually this was my first approach)

      Option two is a bit ok but running a full setup on our case means running the entire setup routine for 1 week straight since we have millions of transactions in R/3.

      What I did was I have copied OLI9BW to a 'Z' version. Added a Select Option base on VBRK-FKDAT and insert the filter to the point where the program selects data from VBRK table...It works; for now.

      Please advice if it was SAP's intension to disregard FKDAT as a selection criteria...I think they have done this on a purpose w/c I am not aware as of now...
