Adding new field to product allocation catalog?

We are configuring product allocations in SCM 7.0 and have a requirement to add a new field to the standard field catalog for the allocations check.  We have followed the procedure outlined by SAP to add our new field to the structure /SAPAPO/KOMGOZ, add the field to the field catalog, and copied the source code to ERP.

The issue that we are having is that new custom field that we added to the field catalog is not being populated when we execute /SAPAPO/ATPQ_PAREA_K - Characteristics Combinations from Planning Area.  The product allocations group that is being used in /SAPAPO/ATPQ_PAREA_K has three characteristics. The first two which are SAP provided fields are being populated correctly, but the last custom field we added to the field catalog is not. It is just blank.

Is there a step that we missed during the configuation.  We are only using this field for the product allocations check (we do not use Rules Based ATP).

you mean multiple allocation group??

yes, there might be many prod allocation group assigned to a single/multiple product allocation procedure.  Not sure exact what exactly you did and what is issue?

Most IMP== try do a consistency check for product allocation after your complete configurations. It will give you the info is something wrong or should be looked in to.

As its always good, if you provide the requirement in details so we might be able to give better approach. if you can put your screen shots and explain what is being done and what is expected, we should be able to help. 

Please close the thread if issue resolved.
