Hello, can someone please tell me how to reach the source data for the key figure 'Incoming Orders' in MCTG? We use Cognos for our formal reporting software, which is fed daily from SAP, but we are finding a significant difference between SAP's figure and Cognos figure. We know the filters applied in Cognos and can account for some of the discrepancy, but there is still close to $1 million unaccounted for. When I run VA05/VA05N, the figures do not match, and they don't match when I take the data directly from the VBAK table either, even accounting for the returns and credit memos.

Ideally, I would like to see the actual data that is calculating 'incoming orders' and then compare this to the line item data in Cognos to weed out the discprepancies.

Any help or direction will be greatly appreciated. I am 2 days into this now!

Thank you,

Erica Nash
