In this step you define, for every assignment group, which
fields of the external structure are to be assigned to which fields
in the CO-PA line item table.
The field assignment forms the basis for the generation of the
ABAP program for the external data transfer. If this assignment has
not been maintained, the system proposes an assignment based on the
external structure in the assignment group. You need to save this
proposal, after which the program for the external data transfer is
generated. You can regenerate this program at any time by carrying
out a change (or "pseudo-change") in the field assignment and then
Note the following when assigning fields:
For times, you can assign either the field PERIO, the
combination of GJAHR/PERDE, or the field BUDAT.
If you store the period and fiscal year as a 7-digit date, assign
this field to the field PERIO. If you store the period and the
fiscal year separately, assign them to the fields GJAHR and PERDE.
If you use a concrete date, assign it to the field BUDAT.
If you want to transfer weekly data in planning, you need to
assign the field ALTPERIO.
If you do not assign the record type (VRGAR), the system fills
it automatically with "F".
The version (VERSI) must be assigned, since this is copied
automatically on the initial screen in planning.
The plan/actual indicator (PLIKZ) is not necessary and
therefore is ignored here. Whether the data is plan data or actual
data depends solely on whether you are using the planning
transaction or the actual transaction.
The assignment group must be defined already.
The operating concern and the external structure must be
