EKPO Table adjusted in SE14 and records deleted

Hi Team,

We worked on enhancing the EKPO table by adding one field to CI_EKPODB table. We did a DB Adjust and selected save and activate database options. We thought we wont loose the data. But unfortunately we lost the data and we need to recover it back.

The DB table in underlying database is generated and hence DB admin says flashback is not possible.

1. My question is it possible to flashback the table which got generated. Meaning Will SE14 operation do a drop table and create table for modifiying and adjusting the DB table in Underlying DB. Kindly confirm.

2. Let us know the recovery procedures for one single table which got deleted in SAP

Regards

    Hi Balakumar,

    1) If you have a flashbackup of affected table then recover the same before it got impacted.

    2) Restore full backup of SAP system and recover logs until this adjustment was performed.

    Hope this helps

    Hi,

    If you have single table backup which you had taken before starting the activity than can help.

    If not, the only option is to restore the database and recover till start time of your activity.

    Hi Bala

    Generally this is not advisable. This could lead your DB inconsistency. You need to restore whole database backup (in another system) and export the required table data.


    Please refer this notes as well.
