To set the update of the functional area in the CO totals tables, proceed as follows: Controlling -> General Controlling -> Include Characteristics in CO Totals Records. You can activate the update of the characteristics can independently.
The update of the characteristics in the totals records means that a separate totals record is run for each combination of functional area and segment. This has the advantage that these characteristics with allocations in CO, which are based on the totals records (for example assessment, distribution, revaluation, order settlement) are known. Therefore, the senders can credit the functional area or segment for allocations. The functional area or segment is derived again on the receiver object.

Exceptions: The assessment and the indirect activity allocation to the result (transactions KEU5 and KEG5) as well as the accrual calculation (KSA3). For these applications, as before, the functional area is not determined until the documents are posted. As a result, a credit suitable for functional area with is possible with restrictions only. (For the allocations in the profitability analysis, for performance and data volume reasons, the sender information is already summarized so that the original assignment to the functional area disappears).
Among other things, the update causes a multiplication of data volumes, which can affect the performance of the period-end closing operations.
Set the functional area derivation of characteristics so that the functional area is already derived on the entry screen, and not when you are posting as is the case in earlier releases.
To capitalize the functional area derivation on the entry screen, proceed as follows: Financial Accounting (New) -> Financial Accounting Basic Settings (New) -> Tools -> Customer Enhancements -> Enhance Determination of Functional Area.
