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

Receiver B = 50%

Receiver B = 30%

Receiver B = 20%

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

In case of Variable portions -

Sender A =1,00,000

Receiver B = 50%

Receiver B = 30%

Receiver B = 20%

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.
