Data type enhancement to SAP delivered data type


I have a requirement where I need to create a data type enhancement for a SAP delivered data type that is part of a SAP delivered software component.

The help on this is a little hazy and I am unsure how to proceed.

Can anyone help on the first steps for creating a new software component referring to the SAP delivery software component ?

I am using XI on Web AS 7.00

    You can create another software component version (SWCV) with a dependency on SAP-delivered SWCV.

    Import your SWCV in IR.

    In the new SWCV in IR, you should see a "Basis" folder, which will contain all the objects from the original SAP-delivered SWCV.

    Double-click on the object you wish to modify and clikc on "change". If will warn you of making changes to the SWCV. Proceed with your changes.

    Once activated, you will have a new version with the mods without changing the original one. It is indicated by a special icon for the object.
