    Hi Senthil,

    Use RLGRAP-FILENAME instead.

    I don't think that is a wise thing to do. I would NOT recoomend that.. If I do a where used action on this structure-field combination then I get 105 hits.

    Changing the datatype would effect all programs, function modules etc. where this is used. You will need to get acces keys for all these programs to change them as well. And what if this field is used in a move-corresponding statement ? Then you would have to make changes there as well. Big chance you are going to f*** up something seriously.

    Can you explain WHY you want to change SAP standard like that ? Maybe we can come up with an altenative solution.

      Thanks Peter for your response.

      I am not going to change via access key. I am aware that it will hit at many place.

      I know implicit enhancement is not available , but still an example

      If i had a implicit enhancement at selection screen level i can change to


      But the above is NOT possible.

      The reason to change is, The DME file which would be generated in the program is stored in application server. The Path of application server is more than 38 ...which comes around 60 including file name. That's why Business want to change the length. Please advise.
