Change Storage bucket profile in TSCOPY

Hi Gurus,

I am trying to copy data from one Planing Area, PA1 (Which uses Fiscal Months as Storage buckets profile) to another Planing Area, PA2 (Which uses Fiscal Quarters as Storage Bucket profile). I tried using /SAPAPO/TSCOPY and it failed as expected and gave the following message -

@5C\QError@    Periodicities of planning area PA1 and planning area PA2 are incompatible.

Is there any BADI or enhancement spot in the standard transaction /SAPAPO/TSCOPY to map Fiscal months to Fiscal Quarters ? And is there a better way to copy data between DP Planning Areas with different storage bucket profiles.

    Basicly the storage bucket profiles of the two planning areas are allowed to be different, but they must be "compatible".

    Please refer to note 1491820 for some information. This note is talking about copying data from infocube to planning area, but the scenario is similar -- the fiscal year variants must be compatible.

    Planning area data is saved in liveCache. Any incompatible data may cause inconsistency. So I don't think modifying the code is a good choice. Please try to create compatible fiscal year variants in customizing.

    Best Regards,

      Thanks for the response. Yeah, modifying the TSCOPY did not look like a good idea to start with, because this transaction is used in a lot of other jobs. We are now using the BAPI_PBSRVAPS_CHANGEKEYFIGVAL2 to load data into the planning book of target planning area and BAPI_PBSRVAPS_GETDETAIL2 to extract data from the source planning area.

      Thanks for your help.

    Hello Shiv

    As per my understanding, what matter is what are Periodicities maintained in the storage bucket profile which used in your Planning Areas. If both Planning Areas has Periodicity = Month selected, then Copy Plan Version should work.

    I do not know about any BADI or enhancement which can help you here.  But some workaround you will have to do, loading data into Infocube from Planning Area which has  Fiscal Months and Fiscal Quarters included, then loading into your 2nd Planning Area. Think about this approch.
