# Differance between Variable Portions & Fixed PercentagesCO-PA Assessment

Hi,

What is the differance between Variable POrtion & Fixed Percentage in Receiver weighting factors of COPA Assessment cyecle.

For example - i have 1 sender and 3 receivers in the segment.

In case of Fixed percentage -

Sender A =1,00,000

For example - i have 1 sender and 3 receivers in the segment.

In case of Variable portions -

Sender A =1,00,000

Is that correct? Please correct me..

Thanks

Hello

Your first example for fixed percentage is correct. However for variable portion the percentage is automatically derived by the system based on the actual postings in the value fields/ key figure entered.

Quote from SAP help

" Example

Sender A distributes \$100,000 to three receivers. The tracing

factors are the actual costs.

Receiver I Cost Element I Amount

B I 430000 I \$2000

C I 430000 I \$1000

D I 430000 I \$2000

Total \$5000

The SAP system calculates the following values:

Receiver B: 100,000/5000 X 2000 = \$40,000

Receiver C: 100,000/5000 X 1000 = \$20,000

Receiver D: 100,000/5000 X 2000 = \$40,000

The following receiver tracing factors are also possible in periodic

reposting, assessment, and distribution:"

The amounts referred to above i.e. \$2000, \$1000 and \$2000 are actual costs posted to the receivers.

The receiver weighting factor is to give further weightage to the receivers. Suppose the actual postings to receiver B, C, D are 2000, 1000 and 2000 respectively as in the above example.

If you enter the weightage as 100, 200 and 300 respectively then the allocation will be as per the below portion

Receiver B: 40,000 X 100 = 4,000,000

Receiver C: 20,000 X 200 = 4,000,000

Receiver D: 40,000 X 300 = 12,000,000

If you do not want such weighting factor then you may keep this as 100.

Hope this clarifies.
