Define User-Defined Message Types

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 &").

Standard settings

The standard system contains user-defined message types in different work areas.


To change the message type, proceed as follows:

1. Choose New entries.
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)
4. Press F4 and choose a message type.
