Duplicate characteristics in Table-Based Value Assignments

Hi all,

I encountered the problem that some characteristics have duplicate entries in the Table-Based Value Assignments (table TCG11_VAI) - i.e. the same characteristic is displayed twice in CG02 - and this differs between the different systems (design, test, quality). It has not been set up like this (double characteristic) in design, however in f.e. the test system the characteristic is displayed twice.

The problem is that this seems to happen randomly and that -, althoug the transports on the different systems are identical - the characteristics display differently in CG02 and table TCG11_VAI.

F.e. in the development system the characteristic is displayed normally - i.e. only appears once -, in the test system too, and then on the quality system, the characteristic is displayed twice. This even happens for standard SAP characteristics and classes, on which no customization has been done.

Did somebody experienced the same issue or know how to solve this?

Many thanks in advance,

Kind regards,

    Hi Dries,

    There is an OSS note but it is quite old. Depending on your release it maybe worth checking:
