what is priority level of field status group
The priority level is Supppress, Optional and required as per my knowledge
Thank you Satya_Vetsa and kent !
While configuring please keep in mind the following checklist:
1.Have you created the PA transfer structure? (to establish the flow to value fields)
2.Have you created 'Characteristic Group'? (this will facilitate the user to enter the characteristic values of choice)
3.Have you assigned the 'CG' to finance transaction 'RFBU'?
4.Has the proper 'Field Status Group' assigned to the GL account so as to
make the Profitability Analysis as mandatory assignment?
Direct posting lets you post direct costs, revenue, and sales deductions to profitability segments. Examples of direct posting include licensing fees for purchased merchandise, special direct costs from sales such as transportation insurance for a certain shipment, cost and revenues for services, or invoices received for a marketing campaign.
You assign the values to a profitability segment directly in the FI posting transaction. There you can call up a special assignment dialog box for each posting line by clicking the Profitability segment field.
In this dialog box the system displays the characteristics that you can choose from the operating concern you are working in. You can predefine what is displayed on this screen by defining a so-called Ã¢â‚¬Å“characteristic groupÃ¢â‚¬? for the activity RFBU in Customizing. The characteristic group defines which characteristics are displayed for selection.
For direct postings in FI, all assignments of values and quantities to the value fields in costing-based CO-PA are defined inthe PA transfer structure FI, which you maintain in Customizing.
In account-based CO-PA, the data is posted in the same cost or revenue element.
Remember: If your system allows dual postings to both a profitability segment and a cost center, the real posting always goes to the profitability segment. The cost center is posted only for statistical purposes.
From a high level you must have activated account based and costing based COPA. Account based is generally used for reconciling even though it is not really needed.
To make the Profitability Segment Visible in FI, for FI only postings, you must goto the Field Status for the Posting Key (If I remember) and ensure that it is mandatory (or optional if you prefer).
Costing based postings from SD go through the Account based postings in FI. Reporting is at either level. If you are posting at the FI level, you should make sure that the Profitabiltiy Segment is entered. This will ensure that your Account based and Costing based reconcile with each other.
Hope this helps,
