In order to run Profitability Analysis in a distributed system environment, you need to generate system message types which control the communication with the local systems. You need one message system for each type of Profitability Analysis (costing-based and account-based).
For costing-based CO-PA, you need to generate message type CPxxxx (where xxxx is the name of your operating concern).
For account-based CO-PA, you need to generate system message type CODCMT, or actualize it if it has already been generated for another application in CO.
Create the system message types for the types of CO-PA you are using.
If you change the operating concern (by adding new characteristics or value fields), you need to regenerate the system message types.
