SAP extract Forecasting parameters (MPOP structure)

SAP MPOP structure is not a real table, and is not directly accessible, for example using SE16N (Fig 1).

Therefore, if we want to extract Material Master’s MPOP data for a given set of materials, it must be done by accessing several tables, MAPR (Fig 2) and PROP (Fig 3), which contains information from the Material Master’s Forecasting view (Fig 4).

First, we must look for PNUM1 pointer corresponding to the Plant / Material in MAPR table (Fig 5), and, then, use it in PROP‘s table PNUM1 field (Fig 6), various Forecasting parameters versions will be detailed.

We finally have to select the highest History number, HSNUM parameter sequentially assigned, in order to get active forecasting parameters.
It is then quite simple, in SQVI, to create a Table join view, add tables MAPR and PROP, to display and extract our MPOP data.

Tables keys :

MAPR table – Material Index for Forecast (Fig 7)
