Maintaining V_T511K - get warning message

Hi,

I am in need of advice from SAP-HR functional consultant/guru.

In V_T511K for constant 'CFCHK' there is a value of '8,00', and we need to change this to '7,00'. I can do this easily via SM30, the problem is i get a warning message:

My question is it okay to go ahead with this change? I don't want to break anything, but as it is a warning i don't think it is so serious, but then again i have no previous experience with V_T511K so i am posting here to get advice/reassurance etc. 😊

All help greatly appreciated.

    That constant (CFCHK) was created by SAP and is not in the Customer Number Range.

    In my system (Country code = 07), that constant exists only for Country code 15 with the description "Check on tax number IT0021" and the value of 1.00 .

    Before changing such a constant (which is not recommended), you should research where it is used, document your findings and why you require to make a change to it, do the change in your development environment and make the appropriate tests afterwards before transporting the change to QAT (and eventually to PRD).

    Note that if you change the value of that constant, you may need to change it again the next time you update your system (HRSP/Stacks) since SAP may overwrite it's value, and may decide to use it for other purposes.

    This is showing or giving you an information that its SAP related constant which is used for different standard program or pcr's.

    So don't change it because SAP it's not recommending to   change which is used by SAP. So SAP is always giving an information to consultant if they are doing some thing wrong which is not customized process.

    Hi,

    V_T511K is "parameter table" which is having constants and their associated values, which are referred by SAP in various standard functions/pcrs etc. You should only enter the values which are suggested by SAP. Please refer the documentation of that constant (purpose & where it is used in SAP).

    We used to create constants name starting with letter "Z" for our own usage (which will not be overwritten by SAP in subsequent update/release).

    As mentioned by experts (above), if you are confident in changing and know, how SAP will function as per the changed value, then you can go ahead, but document it, so that, it can be understood by other consultants who can be aware and understand the purpose of the changed value. But for every upgrade, you may have to check whether this value got changed by SAP and ensure that you get your requirement fulfilled.

    regards,

    Bala.

    • Hi,

      Also, your screen shot shows that, it is not advisable to change this constant value. It is better to find any other route to solve your issue with out changing this constant value. Please also search for any sap note/knowledge base from service.sap.com on this for your country version and get advise accordingly.

      regards,

      Bala.
