Retract zero values in SEM to R/3
How do I get zero values in SEM to retract to R/3 to overwrite another value? I want the final result to be zero in the cost element, cost center.
The standard retraction function for cost-center planning is UPR_COST_PLAN_EXEC and for initialization functions it is UPR_COST_PLAN_INIT. In both functions, SEM doesn't consider zero values for retraction -- in order to retract zero values you have to modify the standard functions as follows:
In all exit functions, <xth_data> internal tables store the data to be processed by functions. You can change the above stated functions to read and populate data with zero values into this internal table and this way retraction will send zero values to R/3.
