Creating new charactersitic - which BW Application to assign?

Dear All,

I am creating a new characteristic in APO using the RSA1 transaction. After I've provided the name and the description, the system pops a window with following message:

Several BW changes are active in this system.

To which BW application should the object belong?

BW

APO

Which of the above options should be chosen?

What the implications?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards,

Hi Rimjhim,

APO keyfigures are editable, fixable in APO planning area where as BW are only readable. It does not make much difference with the characteristics the same time except for the data type.

refer to this[post|Difference between APO key figures and BW key figures] for more details. There are several posts in this forum about this issue.
