Change of breakdown category
We are using SEM-BW 4.0, SAP-BW 3.5, running BCS. We are trying to change the Breakdown Category of an FS Item going forward. The system allows to change and save the Breakdown Category as needed, but when we attempt to post a manual entry or run the data stream or any tasks, the BCS system crashes with the following error:
<b>Can we change the break down category like this mid wasy as changed by Shiva.</b>

You should never change the break down category midway. Break down category is similar to a field status group in R/3. Though it will not throw any error when you are saving ,subsequently it will cause inconsistency since the already posted items will be looking for the changed objects. Say for example you are making change to a Functional area as required item for a FS item for which data has already been posted. When you are posting an item, system will look for this object even for the items which were posted earlier which results in inconsistency. If the changes are absolutely required then you need to run a program which will allow you to make changes the posted data earlier. Hope this is lear now.
