    Document data definition is composed of 3 things

    <b>Document No

    Doc Type

    Doc Part

    Doc Version</b>

    So lets take a case of doc no <b>abcd1234</b>

    doc type <b>dwg</b> this shd be defined in transaction DC10

    Doc part is <b>000</b> default

    Design departments, for example, can use document parts to divide up large documents such as design drawings into pages.

    doc Version>> is the version of the document this can take values 01 02 03 and so on

    In DC10 u have <b>vesion number increament</b> settings which decides the increment

    dont change and save anything if u r nt sure.

    CV01N is used now a days not CV01

    Its for creating new Doc

    While creating new doc u can give doc no,type,part,version

    now after savin a doc

    if u want to create a version of it

    u can goto cv01n and put same values for doc no,type,part and put version as 02 instead of 01

    this ll be new version for the doc



    new version


    and so on

    CV02N is used to modify the doc

    i.e change in description, status change, check in file etc etc.

    CV03N is for display of Doc


    Award the points if useful</b>

    I ll put new post for Kpro and ECL
