SAP E-Book


A line item was assigned to a profitability segment (number ) which has the value for characteristic . The original document (FI document, sales order, internal order, etc.), however, contains in this field. It is therefore inconsistent with the profitability segment found.

System Response

The characteristics in Profitability Analysis (CO-PA) must have the same characteristic values as the original document. For example, you cannot assign a sales order to a different customer or product than the one contained in the original sales order. If you wish to fill the characteristics with different contents, you must change the original fields.


Enter the correct characteristic values on the CO-PA assignment screen. The system will automatically assign a corresponding profitability segment number. If it is not possible to enter values in some of these fields, delete the entire assignment to a profitability segment number and then enter it again.

As a rule, you should first enter the fields in the original sender document and then make the assignment to a profitability segment.
