I need to change the existing COPA report, Need to add WBS element as a selection criteria and also a characteristics so it can be drilled down. Create WBS as a global variable in KE3E and it is not showing up in when i change the report in KE30 in the available list of characteristics. And also it is not showing up in KE35 when i change the general selection to add as a Variable.

    Go to KE91 and create the report.

    In KE91, the Characteristic Cost element (KSTAR) is available. Add it as below.

    Cost Element .... Check the box Hierarchy node ...... check the box Variable on/off ...... KSTAR...... Cost element.

    After this, just check in Variable, the Cost element shuold appear

    Line item based reports are defined in KE91 (segment level reports in KE31).

    Both types of reports can be started in KE30 and changed in KE32

    Let us know if you still have any queries

      Thanks for your quick response, after adding WBS element (PSPNR) into the report. Excuted the report in KE30 and getting the following message:

      Characteristic PSPNR is no longer in the field catalog and will be deleted

      Message no. KH288


      Characteristic PSPNR, which you selected for the report, no longer exists due to a change in the data basis.

      System Response

      Characteristic PSPNR will automatically be deleted from the report.


      Since the report no longer exists in its original version, you should check the entire structure.

      Please help.
