    Hi,

    the only impact will be the change in the label of fields which are referring <DATAELEMENT> which you are enhancing.

    Hello Ritesh,

    It will change the Field Label of all the fields and variables which will be using this Data Element. To find the impact of it you can check the where used list for that Data Element.

    Hi RK,

        Could you please provide more details about the requirement like which data element you want to modify and whats the reason for changing it....so that people can analyse and provide options to meet the requirement.  Hope you got my point.

      Hi RK,

          Yes, there won't be any impact but the only concern is that if it was used in many places and users are familiar with  existing description and the new text may create some confusion. 

      Specified field is related to customer master, so to avoid issues just do where used list (related screens) to know the usage of this field and then you can proceed.
