SE21 - "Flag for Package Encapsulation" - how to change on existing package?

When creating a package (SE21), there’s this "Flag for Package Encapsulation" I could set.

On a saved package, I can see it in the "Package Hierarchy" tab.

But: how can I change that flag on a package that is already created?

...I haven't found a way so far....

can you help me out?

thanks

Joachim

PS: if I can't do someting in SE80/SapGui I tend to think "well, maybe Eclipse?", but that shouldn't be the case here, right? Eclipse users still have to use SE21, if I'n not mistaken....

    Once You turn Your package checks on, You will be able to change this flag on the properties tab of a package.

    Afterall, whether a package is encapsulated or not, makes no difference, when the checks are off.

    • Hi Joachim,

      unfortunatelly, as far as I know that's the only way. But I'll be more than glad to learn something new.

      Aside from the offical help, I think I found this information also in two SAP-Press books: one was the ABAP certification guide, the other was Tobias Trapp's book about ABAP (only in German, I think), and as far as I remember, neither of them gives an alternative way of setting the package checks on.

      Best regards

    This took me quite a while to find, so I'm sharing in case others have the same issue:

    Hi Joachim,

    Lot of these fields cannot be changed after creation :(

    One option is to delete and recreate it. Other ugly option is to change it in table TDEVC (of course with very carefully, comparing with an existing one).

    Best regards
