How do we use the transactions for Commodities in Treasury
The transactions of Commodity are only available since EhP3 for ECC 6.0. As the functionality is provided with EhP3, you will have to activate the business function FIN_TRM_LR_FI_AN.
FIN_TRM_LR_FI_AN : Commodities (New)
As of SAP ECC 6.0, Enterprise Extension Financial Services, Enhancement Package 3 (EA-FS 603), Business Function TRM: Hedge Management, New Financial Products, New Key Figures, you can map the following Commodity Paper deals in the Transaction Manager (FIN-FSCM-TRM).
- Commodity futures
- Options on commodity futures
- Commodity forwards
The system supports processing the financial transactions in the back office from the posting stage, to margin management, through to calculating the net present values in the Market Risk Analyzer. The Analyzer can also execute mark-to-market analyses and sensitivity analyses for commodities.
The partnership with TRIPLE POINT, which provides a front-office system, has linked the physical side and paper deal side of a commodity futures transaction.
All the functions that you require for processing commodities can be found in the application menu under Treasury and Risk Management-> Transaction Manager -> Commodities. The commodities were integrated into the existing functions and the following functions were developed specially:
Matching : Long/Short Positions (TPM91)
Matching :Overview with Reversal Function (TPM92)
Master Data (TPM_CTY_MASTER)
Commodity Overview (TPM_CTY11)
