In this topic, we described about the Maintain Versions and Maintain Versions Definition process along with technical information.
Versions in Controlling (CO) are time dependent or year dependent. Maintain Versions used to create independent data groupings in planning and in actual. In planning, versions display alternative plan scenarios based on different planning assumptions. The version values can be copied from one to another.
Normally, the version “000” in planning have the legal values provided by the SAP. We can maintain user defined versions in addition to the version “0”. The plan and actual data for version 000 serves in plan/actual comparisons and in variance analysis.
