CBP Assortments – Changing Product Validity i.e. Start Date to the Past.

System Used: SAP Trade Management standard integration with BI-IP and ECC

Purpose: The purpose of the document is to provide insights on changing Product Validity (Start Date) after the Product being already added in the Plan.

In Customer Business Planning when a product is added in the PPH the validity will get updated in the Assortments screen. For example, if a product is added on 01-Apr-2020 till 31-Dec-2044 the product validity dates in the assortments will be displayed as ex: 01-Apr-2020 to 31-Dec-2044. Also, the BW combinations for the Plan and Product will be generated from 01-Apr-2020 only, the combinations from 01-Jan-2020 till 31-Mar-2020 are not available.

Since the start date is 01-Apr-2020 we are not getting the actualized shipment data from ECC to CRM and BW systems for the past period i.e. from 01-Jan-2020 till 31-Mar-2020. To resolve this issue, we need to change the Product validity i.e. we need to generate combinations for the missing period (Ex: 01-Jan-2020 to 31-Mar-2020).

Before Screenshot:

Example Product: 12345- B Test Product 2 has Validity: 01.04.2020 to 31.12.2044


Before performing the activity, we need to have the text file with the below required details

Product Id – Product Id for which the validity needs to be changed Ex: 12345-B

Note: Date From and Date To needs to be filled with missing period start date and end Date.
