  • non-null values show in the backend (Planning Objects with Key Figure data) for RECOMMENDEDSAFETYSTOCK
  • the safety stock component key figures (SAFETYSTOCKDEMANDVAR, SAFETYSTOCKSUPPLYVAR, SAFETYSTOCKSERVICEVAR) show values (>= 0) in Excel
  • AND the planning area was created as a copy of the Unified Planning Area SAPIBP1
