Change Project Status from REL to CRTD

Hi Gurus,

I know there is no standard procedure to change back the status from REL to CRTD on project level. Still, our new business process requires that not every wbs element is released directly with creation....

For new projects we do not have a problem as we just won't release on project level. But we have a lot of old projects in status REL, thus new wbs elements would be released directly with creation.

We thought about a z-program which just changes the status directly in the table JEST for all concerned projects.

Do you see any problem about that?

Many thanks in advance!

Sandra

    Hi Sandra,

    i think this is also not possible and standard BAPI will not work for this. further you can re-check if system allows. Long time back our team tried to do the same using BAPI but they were not able to set REL to CRTD.

    thanks

    Create a new user status to restrict processing on the older projects on newly created objects.

    I wouldn't risk updating JEST, there are too many side effects that are unknown and you could invalidate your SAP support.

    Hi Sunil,

    I know it is not possible in SAP standard. My question is whether you see any problems in case we write a little program that changes the status directly in table JEST.

    Thanks!

    Hi Gurus,

    many thanks for your tips. You are right, we won't put hands on table JEST, but just work with the accounting block....

    Thanks and regards!
