"No retrospective update" message for non synchronous update too



When I am trying to do a repeat update on a failed V1 FM from sm13 I am getting the message 'This update request can not be carried out retrospectively'. As per the manual this message comes when we try to do a repeat update on a synchronous update. But strange thing is that info column in sm13 does not show that it's a synchronous transaction.

Moreover in the same transaction if V1 goes thru but V2 fails then we can safely do a repeat update and the system does not throw any error.

Why same standard transaction (say VL01) sometimes work in synchronous and sometimes in asynchronous update mode (as evident from sm13 log)
