Problem in Macro Transport

Hi,

I have transported a macro (Planning book) from Development to Quality.

Because of this some unwanted changes in other macros also got transported.

Now I need to revert back changes in quality.

Please let me know how can I do it.

Thanks,

Siva.

    Hi Kumar/Harish,

    Like SE38 is it possible to compare the versions of the macro ( to find out the changes done on the macro ).

    Thanks,

    Siva.

      not that i know of

      if you are on version 5 you can load all macros into the main screen, and drill down, use the print macro function and move it to excel and use the match function to compare

      but this may not help if you have made changes in the attributes

      oh i dont think you have this option in 4.0

      you might need to do a line by line manual check of the macros to get back to where you are

      but since the production has the old state i would still explore the possibility to move the book from production to QA or Dev using some basis help

      (also one more, albeit unorthodox, point to note is that macros can be maintained independet of the system... so technically you can implement the same changes in production without a transport(if its very urgent) . The problem is that if a planning book is transported later with the macro books attached to it, it will overwrite these macros and this might become more painful... hence it is good to make sure your dev has the right macros)

    Siva,

    I am sure many of us would have committed the same kind of mistake atleast once.

    The only way I can think of and which we had done in the past is

    (1) This particular WRONG Transport request shoud be sent all the way to the production environment

    (2) Create a new ( GOOD ONE- which includes all the UNDO changes which you need in Q)TRANSPORT REQUEST in D and then move it into Q and P.

      • Inform the BASIS team that they move the Transport Request(1) and then immediatley move the Transport Request(2)***

      I hope this helps.

      Regards

      Kumar

      ... Alternately.. try this:

      1.Work with the Basis guys to change the transport structure one-off and create a transport to move the macro book from Prod to Dev or Q.

      2. Make sure you move the necessary changes only now from Dev to Q the second time
