how to initiliaze the product view for the first time products


Dear Experts,

We trying to use the temporary low level codes during SNP Heuristics. We execute the SNP heuristics with option of redeterming the temporary low level codes in transaction /SAPAPO/SNP01. During this process we get some information messages - that Pegarea is not defined for product XXX at location YYY. But the job will be successfull.

How ever when we run the same transaction in foreground mode; this message becomes as an error message and terminates; but just a information message in background mode.

When we investigated; it is found that pegid is missing for this combination in table - /SAPAPO/PEGKEY. We executed OM17 and other programs like - /SAPAPO/DM_PEGKEY_REORG, /SAPAPO/OM_TB_PEGAREA_CREATE; but the pegid is still missing.

Later we found that this product was interfaced firsttime to APO and there are no elements on the product view. Also in the product view; we can see only two tabs

Note: We do run the heuristics with product as generic selection and given the location.

When I went into the change mode; I get the following message -

I say yes and create a dummy forecast element and delete it immediatly. I then save it and see all the other tabs.

Also I now see the pegid is created for this combination in the table /SAPAPO/PEGKEY. Now the SNP heuristics don't get any message either in foreground or background.

Question here: -> Given the possibility of many products introduced; how do we address this? Or is this something should have initilized with first time product master CIF which is not doing in our system? or is there any standard program which needs to be executed right after CIF?

Any comments please?
