Archiving Objects (CO-PA)

Definition

When you generate an operating concern, the system automatically generates two archiving objects (COPA1_xxxx for costing-based Profitability Analysis and COPA_xxxx for account-based Profitability Analysis, where xxxx is the name of the operating concern) and the corresponding write, delete, and reload programs.

Structure

You can archive the following data in costing-based Profitability Analysis (CO-PA):

Table CEAL01 can only be archived if you have distributed Profitability Analysis (ALE) active and are transferring data in realtime (by transaction) between systems. Table CEALE01 in the target system contains the references to the line items in the sender system.

In account-based Profitability Analysis, you can archive your Controlling line items (tables COEP, COEJ, and COBK) and summary record tables (tables COSS, COSP, and COKA).

You can archive your data using a number of selection parameters.
