Possible to change status of a previously completed step in a process chain

HI

Does someone know if it is possible to change the status of a previously completed step (or even the entire chain) by means of another process step?

The situation is that I happen to have a query which will, given a certain situation, have a step going read and causing an alternate method of completing the loading procedure.

If that situation occurs and all subsequent steps have been green, the whole chain is supposed to be green. However through the initial error the chain will show up read in the monitor.....

Now I am looking for a method/process step to change the status of either the process that went on read or to set the status of the entire chain to green (despite having a step turning read).

Does anybody have an idea on that issue?

Regards,

Minima

    Hi,

    check out my weblog: /people/siegfried.szameitat/blog/2006/02/26/restarting-processchains

    Of course it is called restarting process chains, but anyway, wiht fm described in the weblog, you can set each status you want to a chain or a process in a chain.

    regards

      Ok, but how do I retrieve the variant and instance in a subsequent step of the process chain?

      And in addition I need to change the status, but the subsequent processes should not continue.....

      As far as I can see it I could create a program doing exactly what you do manually, however where I wouldn't be able to retreive the required instance and variant name. In addition I wouldn't be able to change the status of the step without causing the subsequent steps to continue processing.

      I could develop a ABAP doing all those steps, however I consider that rather complicated.

      Does anybody know of a simpler solution?

      If not, does someone know on how to retreive the instance of a process step during a running process chain?
