Changing BDC / Assigning new BDC
We are planning to change Item Master data BDC assignment and change BDC. This we are doing to take out Assets/Equity overview reports from BCS.
1-Changing Existing BDC to include Movement Type of Type 02 (Reqd,if blank default)
2-Assigning BDC with Movement Type of type 02 (Reqd, if blank default) to items
3-Assigning BDC with Movement Type of type 03 (Reqd, default allowed) to items
Post, above activity do we need to run Break down Check and carryout correction of historical transactions? Is it a must?
Why is this required, if I am going to use enhanced data prospectively?

For such scenarios as this I have found the breakdown check program very helpful, especially for balance sheet items. Otherwise you will have the portion of the balance prior to the change without movement type and the portion after the change with movement type.
The program will automatically populate those records with blank movement type with the default value per the new BDC.
