Scheduling Margin Key – Mass Configuration tool
This tool enables the user to perform mass configuration of Scheduling Margin Keys. The user can download the template in the form of excel sheet, enter the values and upload the same in the selection screen. The user executes the program/transaction in test run to validate the values entered in the excel sheet. Once verified, the user can execute the program/ transaction in production run mode to update the table T436A with Scheduling Margin Keys. The result of this program will when executed either in test run or production run is the ALV display of successful entries and detailed description of errors.
This tool can be implemented in both pre implementation/ rollout and post implementation/ production support scenarios. This tool is most useful where 100s of plants are live in SAP system. This tool can be used to introduce one Scheduling Margin Key for multiple plants or multiple Scheduling Margin Keys for a plant.

Once the “Test run” mode is successful then execute it in Production mode.
Upon execution, go to V436A table and check for entries.
Test run is a must before production run. This is to ensure only correct entries will move to Config table.
