Edit Standard Characteristics


Dear Team,

I have few standard characteristics ( e.g. SAP_EHS_1013_018_VALUE_NS) of which the data type wanted to change from CHAR to NUM. but while trying to edit the characteristics getting below message

I know that, SAP does not recommend to edit any standard class or characteristics and recommend to make a copy of it e.g. ZSAP_EHS_1013_018_VALUE_NS but the problem is that, as soon as we make a copy of it to custom Z then ERC (CLEO) update will NOT apply the updates to these custom characteristics so does not want to go for this option.

is there any way by which we can edit the standard Characteristics.

Please note I have already removed this characteristics from class so this characteristics is not in use as of now.

Kindly Advise.

Thanking You,
