  5. You can populate the fields either manually or using substitution. If you want to use substitution then under Custom Logic, maintain the derivation logic of your new field by creating a new enhancement implementation for the Accounting: Market Segment business context. The available enhancement option is: Business Add-In Market Segment Extension Fields Substitution (FINS_MARKET_SEGMENT_SUB). This Business Add-In allows you to determine extension characteristics using the market segment. You can only use substitution for those fields that are delivered with the substitution enhancement options.                                              Create5.PNG
  6. Save and publish the new enhancement implementation.
