This variant must work analog to variant QUANTI24.SAP Utilities ______________________________________________________________ Use As of SAP Utilities Release 4. In order to do this. it makes sense to lock the devices individually. If you enter a backbilling group for a schema step that determines consumption factors. You can also make other changes in the internal table of consumption factors created by your variant (or variant QUANTI24). The time involved depends on the number of devices in the lot and on the performance of the database. it is important to take the following points into account: o The generic lock of devices and equipment means that you cannot make any changes to devices or pieces of equipment in the relevant client until the device data has been changed. you can choose how to lock the lot device when compiling sample lots in the Compile Lot .Background Processing transaction (EG8A).72. billing terminates with ______________________________________________________________ SAP AG 12 .

You must also write a variant that provides you with non-aggregated consumption factors. the system waits before trying again.72. The devices are locked very quickly in this method because only one lock is used. You can only set the generic lock if no devices are already locked. o o 1. If this is not immediately possible. this method can take a long time and can lead to problems with the size of the lock table. you can use the generic lock method.7. the system corrects the consumption factors that were determined in previous documents. you have the option to call the transaction several times in succession thus reducing the number of devices in each run.

1.10.13 Company Codes
Use Replacement of the Responsible Company Code in Contract Accounts Receivable and Payable Previously, the responsible company code had the following control characteristics in FI-CA: o o o It determined the company codes in which you could post to a contract account It was the company code in which payment transactions were processed It was (regardless of Customizing) the company code in which payments on account were posted

The coupling of these functions heavily restricts the options in some areas and leads, for example, to you having to introduce auxiliary company codes to portray the organizational model. From Release 4.72, the responsible company code is replaced by the following three new entities: o Company code group The company code group includes all company codes that are permitted for posting to a contract account. One company code group is assigned to each contract account. Company code groups can overlap. This means, for example, you can have a group G1 that consists of company codes 0001,

______________________________________________________________
SAP AG 44

SAP Utilities ______________________________________________________________

0002, and 0003, and group G2 that consists of 0001 and 0003. o Paying company code Exactly one paying company code is always assigned to each company code group. A paying company code is responsible for payment transactions. You have to define house banks and payment methods for paying company codes. Several company code groups can have the same paying company code. The paying company code does not have to be in the company code group itself. Standard company code One standard company code is assigned to every contract account. You use the standard company code for all postings for which no company code can be determined by other means (for example, for payments on account).

o

Transition from Responsible Company Code to the New Entities The conversion of the responsible company codes to company code groups and paying company codes takes place automatically during the first check (contract account or document) where you check the validity of a company code group or where the company code group is a prerequisite. For each responsible company code, the system creates a company code group with the same key. The company codes that were previously assigned to the responsible company code are assigned to this company code group. The responsible company code is assigned as the paying company code for the group. This ensures continuity for the existing organizational model. The name of the responsible company code is taken as the name for the company code group. Since the new name is language-dependent, it is automatically created in all languages used in the installation. The languages are determined empirically by analyzing the document type texts. Changes to the Contract Accounts For new contract accounts, the company code group and standard company code are mandatory requirements. For existing contract accounts, you can use conversion report RFKKSTDBK to add the standard company code. The standard company code receives the value of the former responsible company code. You can convert the contract accounts in stages you do not have to convert them all at once. The system handles accounts that you have not yet converted as if you had converted them. Changes to Checks in Contract Accounts The validity of certain fields was previously coupled to the combination with the country of the responsible company code. The following changes have occurred in these checks: o The country from the paying company code of the company code group is used for: o Payment methods Own bank details

The country of the standard company code is used for: Withholding tax codes Region County code Tax exemptions

Restrictions for Company Code Groups

______________________________________________________________
SAP AG 45

SAP Utilities ______________________________________________________________

Using the new event 1010, you can check whether a company code group is permitted in a contract account. This enables you to prevent, for example, that cross-country groups (in certain contract accounts) are used. Authorization Check In the authorization object F_KKVK_BUK, the responsible company code was used for the check in the master data maintenance. The standard company code is now used instead. Payment Program You can also specify the paying company code in a business partner item. In this case, this specification overrides the paying company code determined via the company code group of the contract account. If a paying company code specified in the line item is in a different country to the paying company code determined via the contract account, you also have to specify a payment method in the line item. In this case you cannot use the payment methods from the contract accounts since they refer to a different country. In the parameters for the payment run/debit memo run, you restrict the company codes to be processed. All relevant company code groups and their paying company codes are determined for the company codes internally. If these are in different countries, the country of the payment run must be assigned via a different parameter. In a payment run, you can still only create payments for one country. Effects on Customizing You define the company code groups in the Implementation Guide for Contract Accounts Receivable and Payable under Organizational Units -> Define Company Code Groups. You assign the company codes to the groups under Organizational Units -> Assign Company Codes to Company Code Groups.
