ISU | FICA – BW Reports on BP Items and Open Items Data flow

Introduction

Few years back when I started with my SAP IS-U/BW support project, I was not aware of the Invoicing/ FICA process and the main use of special ISU/FICA specific ECC extractors (Business Partner Items and Open Items).

I have tried to depict a pictorial representation of how FICA document is generated and its underlying tables updated with FICA document and a few BW reports that can be created from the BP Items and Open Items Dataflow.
