Summarize data during update

In this section you can define how several items of a sender document should be summarized when they are updated in Profitability Analysis.

By summarizing document items posted to the same profitability segment, you can reduce the data volumne in the line item table in Profitability Analysis (CE1xxxx) significantly.

You can also improve runtimes for the update to Profitability Analysis using summarization.

Summarization is defined dependent on:

Summarization of financial accounting document items (RFBU) is only possible for internal documents and only after derivation and valution.

The system summarizes data that was posted to the same profitability segment (the same combination of characteristics). For financial accounting documents, the account or cost element is also used as a criterion.

You can only summarize data within the same sender document. Only the document number of the sender document is stored as information on the origin. Consequently, you can no longer see the corresponding item in Profitability Analysis.
