Field changes

This field can be changed at day level.

Time independence

You can define this field time-independently in the cost center accounting customizing menu item 'Master data'.

  • If you activate the time-dependence flag in the customizing, you can maintain different field contents for any period.
  • If you do not activate the customizing flag, you can only maintain one field value which is valid for all periods. There is, however, an indirect time-dependence, if you simultaneously change a time-dependent field. A new field value can be entered for the time-independent field for the validity interval of the time-dependent field.

Supplementary Documentation - ORT01_ISP 0001


City validated together with street.


Entries with '*' allowed in the 'Street' field.


If you enter the street 'M*' and the city 'Cleveland', the system creates a list of all streets in Cleveland that begin with 'M'.
