How to derive value on Controlling Area on Cost Element or any other entity

Hi Experts,

I want to derive a value of 1000 on the controlling area when we create a cost element. I have tried DERIVE_CELEM  but it seems that Controlling area can only trigger Derivation on other fields once it is manually populated.

Any ideas if this could be possible?




Hi Riaan,

the controlling area of a cost element is a key field of the object. The derivation logic of MDG works only for attributes, but not for key fields. The reason simply that each MDG interface requires a valid key as input parameter. The key has to be defined outside MDG.

Best regards
