Version management in ABAP programs

Hi ,

I have one question regarding version management of ABAP prorgrams.

In the below details of version management of ABAP programs, what are the flags U, I and S? I have two versions with no difference in code and it shows U, so how to avoid such entries in version mangement?

00005 <b>U</b> 620 SAPREQ24

00004 <b>U</b> 620 SAPREQ23

00003 <b>I</b> 620 SAPREQ22

00002 <b>S</b> 620 SAPREQ21

Thanks,

Yogita

    Hi Yogita,

    Here is the documentation about those codes:

    Use

    " ":

    Version was created at request release.

    "I":

    Version created by import.

    "S":

    System request: A version was created because of a system request

    (for example, for a backup copy before making a correction or

    repair, or before an import).

    "U":

    User request: The user created an intermediate version at some time.

    At the next request release, all previously created "U" versions are

    combined, and replaced by a normal " " version. "U" versions can

    also be created for local private objects.

    Regards,

    Vivek

    Yogita,

    Welcome to SDN

    U,I,S denotes the mode of the version.

    <b>Quoting from SAP help:</b>

    " " : Version was created at request release.

    "I": Version created by import.

    "S": System request: A version was created because of a system request (for

    example, for a backup copy before making a correction or repair, or

    before an import).

    "U": User request: The user created an intermediate version at some time. At

    the next request release, all previously created "U" versions are

    combined, and replaced by a normal " " version. "U" versions can also

    be created for local private objects.

    Regards

    Aneesh.

    Hi,

    Sometimes user actions are needed to adjust the objects during Support pack application or SAP upgrade activities. These result in addition of 'U' in the version management.

    Hope this helps.

    - Cheers
