In this step you can change the
message type of certain messages to a different
message type than defined by the system. This enables you to
control how the message is handled by the system.
For some messages there are no restrictions on the message type.
Other messages require a minimal message type.
There is no minimal message type for message KZ 310 ("The
distribution function is active for cost object hierarchy
If you set the message type to " " (blank), the message will
not be displayed in the log.
If you set the message type to "I" (Information), the message
will be displayed in the log.
If you set the message type to "E" (Error), the message will
prevent further functions from being carried out. For example, you
can prevent variances from being calculated before the actual costs
entered on the
cost object hierarchy are distributed to the assigned
The standard system contains user-defined message types in
different work areas.
For WIP calculation, the relevant messages are those of work
area KKA with message class KJ.
For variance calculation, the relevant messages are those of
work area KKA with message class KV.
For processing cost object hierarchies, the relevant messages
are those of work area KKP.
To change the message type, proceed as follows:
1. Choose New
2. Enter the work area in which the
message is issued (such as KKP for Cost Object Controlling).
3. Enter the work area (such as KZ)
and the message number (such as 310)
