In this step, you can define your own
value fields . Frequently used value fields, such as "Revenue" and "Sales quantity", are already predefined in the standard system.
You define this values independent of any operating concern and any client.
Before you create a new value field, look at the ones that already exist. Then you can check whether one of fields you have already define or one defined in the standard system fulfills your requirements.
Once you are in the "change" mode, you can define a new value field by choosing the "Create" icon:
Enter a 4- or 5-character name that begins with "VV" for your value field. Here you also need to specify whether this field is a quantity field or a field for currency amounts. All the currency fields in any single line item use the same currency. Which currency this is, is defined in the attributes of each operating concern. Each quantity field uses one quantity unit. Thus you can use one quantity field to store quantities in different units.
On the next screen, you can enter texts to describe the value field, as well as how the values in this field are to be aggregated over characteristics of time. In most cases, you will use the aggregation rule "SUM (summation) to add up the values over periods.
