    Hello KKK,

    Even if you load totally different CVCs in two selections, you may also get locking issue.

    This is because the locking is not set at CVC level, but characteristic level.

    Please first review note 1130258 to see how lock entries are created.

    There's an easy way to verify the lock entries of the selections: First go to /sapapo/sdp94 and load selection 1 in change mode.

    Then in the menu bar, select Goto-> Lock entries. You'll get a list of lock entries. Please memorize it by copying it to another location/file. Do the same to selection 2.

    Then please review note 397292 to understand in what situation could lock be obtained and could not be obtained.

    Please refer to your memorized locking entries and this note, to understand why the tow selections are locking conflict.

    Best Regards,

    Hello KKK,

    First i would like you to check if note 1448436 is implemented in your system. If not implement it.

    If implemented, just to add to Ada's explanation with this example.

    A lock is possible, when

    o Nothing is yet locked or

    o the selection made for at least one characteristic [that was specified with 'EQ' (equal) by both the checked selection and in

    the existing locks] is different from the existing locks."

    That is to say, if the characteristic has a lock on "EQ to a value", you can have another lock on the same char on "EQ to a DIFFERENT value". Please notice, different value.

    ==> That means, you should have at least one A EQ X, that this A has an existing EQ Y. If there is nothing like A EQ Y existing, you are doomed. One thing to save you is that, if you have another char B EQ Z in the selection, and there is an existing lock on B EQ (something other than Z). The locking in interactive planning IS NOT ABOUT the CVCs behind it. It's about the selection criteria on characters.

    For ex: consider

    selection 1 has :

    Delivery Model = DIR

    Planning product group = LLDP

    Planning region = MEAF

    and locks are created on

    9AKONOB [] 1





    where 9A* and Z* are different characteristics.

    selection 2 has :

    Delivery Model = DIR

    Planning Family = PP

    Planning Region = MEAF

    system may be trying to obtain lock for

    9AKONOB [] 1




    common characteristics are "ZPCPLNREG" and "ZPXDELMOD", but they both have got the same value, SO NO LOCK POSSIBLE FOR SECOND SELECTION.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks and Regards,
