Entering content frameProcedure documentation Copying Data from One Information Structure to Another 

This function allows you to copy

key figure values from a planning version of one information structure to a planning version of another information structure. Thus, you can copy, for example, the sales quantities you have planned in one information structure to the production line of another information structure.

Note

It is possible to copy the values of any key figure.

In some cases, you need to create your own copying method. This depends on the

planning methods defined for the source and target information structures and on the characteristics in each of the information structures. For more information, see Standard Copying Methods and Defining User Methods.

To copy data from one information structure to another in the planning table:

  1. From the planning table, choose Extras
® Copy data.

A dialog box entitled Source Info Structure appears.

  • Specify the source information structure, the desired planning version of this information structure, and the opening and closing dates of the period for which you want data to be copied. You can make all these entries including the dates using the F4 button.
  • Note

    The source information structure must be different from the target information structure, that is, different from the information structure you are currently planning.

  • To continue, choose ENTER .
  • The Assign Key Figure window appears.

  • You define the key figure assignment:
  • a) If you are copying from consistent planning to consistent planning and require an aggregate copy with subsequent distribution, set the Aggregate copy indicator.

    For more information, see Standard Copying Methods.

    b) To specify a key figure from the source information structure, select the radio button next to it (you are in the top half of the window), and choose Choose (or double-click on the key figure).

    The key figure is copied to the group box Key figure(s) assignment.

    Note

    To scroll up and down the key figures list, use the buttons underneath it.

    c) To specify the key figure in the target information structure to which you want the data to be copied, select the radio button next to it (you are in the top half of the window), and choose Choose (or double-click on the key figure).

    The key figure is copied to the group box Key figure(s) assignment.

    d) Repeat steps 4b and 4c until you have listed all the key figures you want to be copied together under the same assignment key.

    e) To save this key figure assignment, choose Save assignment .

    The Save Key Figure Assignment dialog box appears.

    f) Enter a key figure assignment key.

    This is any string of characters that you will be able to remember. The system now creates a key figure assignment profile.

    g) Choose Save assignment .

  • To have the system copy the data, choose Continue .
  • Using an Existing Key Figure Assignment Profile

    To use an existing key figure assignment profile in addition to or instead of a new one:

    1. In the Assign Key Figures box, choose
    Open assignment .

    The Display Key Figure Assignments box appears. It shows key figure assignment profiles that have already been created either online or in Customizing.

  • Click on the relevant assignment key and choose
  • Choose .

    To copy these figures to the Assign Key Figures box, choose

    Continue .
