2974717 - How to schedule Data Flow Verification runs to correct the discrepancy between Planning screen and Stock Overview


You notice that the reported Quantity for a Product XXX (XXX represents the Product ID) in the Planning Area YYY (YYY represents the Planning Area ID) in the Stock Overview and in the Product Planning Details screens do not match. Now you would like to know how to schedule a Data Flow Verification run to synchronize the Quantity between the 2 views.

Data Flow Verification (DFV) compares pairs of business documents that are related to each other in a Data Flow Verification run. Data Flow Verification is available for a defined set of business document pairs covering the different applications in SAP Business ByDesign. The business documents contain the same data, if the system is running correctly and all data has been maintained correctly in the business documents. If the data is not correct, data flow verification finds differences in the data when comparing the business documents and collects the differences in the data flow verification result and the associated Application Log.
