<i>This key figure refers to a field in the R/3 System that is assigned to a key figure scheme element in Profitability Analysis (CO-PA). In this way, you can transfer to SAP BW the contribution margin scheme that you defined in the R/3 System using the key figure scheme. For information about how assignments are made between this key figure and the key-figure-scheme element, see the appropriate section in the Extractor IMG for Profitability Analysis.</i>

thanks and regards

In this t-code in SBIW you can assign a method determining the value of the key figure (assigning FM, a field, or a formula).

You define key figure schemes in CO-PA Customizing under Information System -> Report Components -> Define Key Figure Scheme. When you define a profitability report, you can change an existing key figure scheme or define a new one by choosing Extras -> Key figure scheme.

The meaning of this scheme is explained here:

Hope it's more clear now.

Best regards,
