Question :
In the context of client copy what is customizing data,master data, and application data,and transaction data,etc.. which client copy profile is used for copying each data type? thanks.

Answer :
Customizing Data is configuration data which has been set to fullfil the business requirement in SAP system.
Master data is data that doesn’t change often and is always needed in the same way by business.
Ex: One time activities like creating Company Codes, Materials, Vendors, Customers etc. Transaction data keeps on changing and deals with day to day activities carried out in business.
Transactions done by or with Customers, Vendors, and Materials etc. generate Transaction Data. So data related to Sales, Purchases, Deliveries, Invoices etc. represent transaction data
Application Data refers to Master and Transaction Data.

Type of client copy profile generally can be shown below :
