CE1XXXX Table update and consequences


I had a requirement earlier where I needed to add a COPA characteristic for reporting purpose to add contract number. Now the client wants the fields to be filled in CE4 as well as CE1 tables for historical data as well. CE4 can be done with Re-alignment but CE1 is the question. Because we did not add sales order at segment level characteristics it did not pull in sales order number for all contracts in CE4. Now the clients wants to analyze profitability based on sales orders and for this historical data for CE1 needs to be updated for the new characteristic.

Now the question is how safe is to a hard update for CE1 and fill in those fields for historical data( Either LSMW or BDC). Reverse and re post is ruled out because of huge volume. What impact will it have on other COPA tables and entries. Any inputs on this will be deeply appreciated. I there any another way this can be achieved from other than hard updating tables.
