In this field

Enter

Planning area

The name of the planning area in which the demand plan exists.

Key figure

The InfoObject name of the key figure whose values you want to transfer to R/3 Demand Management. This must be a quantity key figure.

Planning version

The planning version from which you want the data to be transferred.

The InfoObject name of the characteristic that represents products in the planning area. If you leave this field blank, the system reads the data for the characteristic 9AMATNR.

Requirements type

The requirements type that determines the planning strategy of the products in R/3. An entry in this field is optional.

You do not need to make an entry in this field if the product master records in R/3 contain an MRP group and if each of these MRP groups has been assigned a strategy group in R/3 Customizing. The system determines the requirements type from the main planning strategy that is contained in each strategy group.

You can also enter the requirements type from an alternative planning strategy in the same strategy group.

Version

The ID of the demand program in R/3, also known as the (demand) version number, to which you wish to transfer.

The version number indicates the origin of the planned independent requirement. For example, whether the demand program results from R/3 SOP, the R/3 material forecast or APO Demand Planning.

Active

Check this box if you wish the independent requirements resulting from the transfer to be included in the R/3 MRP run. A version of the demand program in R/3 can be active or inactive. Only active versions are included in an R/3 MRP run.
