Can TVARVC entries go through Customizing Request

Hi,

Made some "CHANGES" to existing TVARVC entries and included them in a customizing request instead of a workbench request. Usually in the past I was sending them through workbench request. Is it ok to do this. Can I potentially screw up something.?

Will give points for the right answer. Thanks for reading.

    I dont have the authorization to delete and the process for creating a new transport request is really long. So is it ok to send the customizing request?

      Hi,

      i am not very sure but it may work or may be it will through you an error. As transporting a variant is done by the standard programs so it is better you delete this TR and create a new one otherwise it may be issue at later stage if it didn't worked in QAS or PRD.

    Hi,

    Delete the customising request and create a new workbench request for the same.

    Hi,

    Are you maintaining the entries in this table via transaction sm31(Table maintenance) for table TVARV. Or are you going through the ABAP/4 workbench for a specific program.

    In general maintaining variant parameters and transporting them is not a good idea, as inconsistancies can creep in between the difference systems(Dev, QA, and Prod).

    Transaction SM31 allows you to Add/Delete or Change the contents of a stored parameter or selection_option. A check box on the maintenance screen provides you the option to include the changes in a transport. Given that the table is client independent the transport is likely to be a workbench request rather than customising.

    The assignment of the parameter/selection-option to a screen variant can only be done via program maintenance. And the parameter then transported along with the program.

    Table TVARVC is client dependent and as such entries in this table are consistent with customising requests. As a general principle customising requests are for client dependent transports, while workbench requests are for client independent transports.

    Kind Regards
