updating master and transaction data to APO
After the initial upload of the master and transaction data to APO, what is it recommeded to update the new master/transaction data?
- Run RIMODGEN and RIMODAC2 or run RCPTRAN4? how periodic should it be?
- Should it also be runned RIMODGEN and RIMODAC2? how periodic should it be?
Thanks a lot.

I agree with DB. As mentioned in my previous post , you should run the transaction data IM immediately after the master data IM's. The "immediate transfer" of transaction data is true only for materials already included in the trans data IM's. To transfer transdata of newly created materials / materials that got included in the IM after the last run , you have to run the trans data CIF again.
Here is an example. Let's say you have material X. You have transfered this material and (sayfor ex) sales orders corresponding to this material to APO by creating and activating the mateiral and so's iM's respectively. Now if you put 10 new sales orders for the material X in R/3 they will reflect in APO immediately. Lets say you create a new material Y and create 10 sales orders for that material (Y) . You are not going to see Y or sales orders corresponding to Y in APO. You have to include Y in the material and SO IM's and create and activate the material and SO IM's.
Hope it is clear now
