    Did you run report BALVBUFDEL (or use parameter I_BYPASSING_BUFFER)

    NB: Shouldn't your customer field name start with ZZ or YY as of 16466 - Customer name range for SAP objects?

    • In production server it is not recommended to run BALVBUFDEL as it will clear buffer for multiple things on application server.

      Confusion with /$SYNC ?

      Example: from 770248 - ALV layouts: BALVBUFDEL after transporting layouts

      SAP wrote

      After layouts are transported in a target system, you must execute the report BALVBUFDEL in the target system.

      The ALV buffer is reset with the report BALVBUFDEL. This buffer contains information about the layout. If the report is not executed and the buffer is already maintained for a report, the old settings from the buffer are used as a result. You can successfully load the current settings for the transport layout only when you are sure that the buffer is empty.

      ABAP Dictionary changes of the table fields and/or structures are not transferred from ALV.

      (or wait til next reboot of server ?)
