segment change in profit center without deleting postings

Hi,

Due to change in business requirement, we need to change the segment for a set of profit centers.

we have to anticipate and study what can we do, because, in pure standard behavior, the field Segment is not updatable on the profit centers, even if we have no posting on them.

I found OSS note 940721, they explain how to change this behavior. I applied it in sandbox system and now, for profit centers without posting, we are able to change the segment in the profit center Master Data.

By applying the same in DEV-100 (server with no entries posted), we should be able to change the segment on Profit Centers Master Data as we have no posting on them. But when we will transport them (or update them) in DEV-200 (server with entries posted) for instance, we should have an issue.

So kindly let me know if i transport to DEV-200 then what issues can we face and any solution if we can change the segment without deleting the postings as in future we have to change the segments again due to our changing business requirements.

P.S. we have account based copa on HANA DB and we don't have SD module.

there is no need to delete any transnational date. please check following notes

1373616 - Segment in profit center changed despite transaction data

1037986 - KE52: Changing the segment in the profit center master data

please note that its a time dependent field. new segment will be effective from the date you will change. posting in previous date will post the transaction in old segment.
