Activating HU status history (husstat~chngr)


Does SAP support changing document object for Handling Units?

I would like to store the information about the moment

of changing HU status in HUSSTAT table.

Currently, when HU status gets changed (for example

we load HU with LM31) we have no information

about the time of this operation. The only information

is stored is for example (SE16 > HUSSTAT)


However - table HUSSTAT contains field CHGNR

which can be used to identify change document.

Unfortunattely - I don't know how to activate it.

There is a transaction SCDO which contains object


When I select it - I see the following information:

The problem is that these settings do not activate change documents for

objects HUM. When I display HU i see:

The information about the date and time of changing

HU status is very important.

Any ideas how to force SAP to start filling HUSSTAT-CHGNR?

Thank you,

    Hi Kordian,

    When I check 'where used list' for this field HUSSTAT-CHGNR, I could find the following programs:

    RHU_AR_DELETE_DECENTRALIZED_HU Handling Unit Archiving: Delete Decentrally-Deleted HUs


    So, i think this field is more relevant only in EWM & DWM scenario's. Do you have these scenario's in your system to check whether any HU has been filled with values for these HU's.

    Thanks & regards,

      Hi Balaji,

      Thank you for your help. I think that change documents in HU status are

      not possible.

      Here's a good expanation

      Change Documents in HU status management | SCN

      It's really strange that we are not able to store date and time

      of changing HU status. For example - when HU is loaded

      (I0514 status) and moved onto truck I would like to know

      the exact time as it is important.


      The only solution I found is to build custom RF application

      (quite simple) for changing HU status and then record the

      moment of that in Z-table. And this is what I'm going to do

      to resolve the problem.
