    Hi

    In the upgrade the Old server system is updated to the new server system.

    The data base remains the sane. so there is no posint of data transfer in the upgrade projects.

    Thanks & Regards

    Please find below

    1.What objects will come in SPAU and SPDD?

    Ans: All the objects which are modified, after tansporting to the current system,

    will be listed in SPAU and SPDD. SPDD contains the list of all modified Data Dictionary objects, like tables, dataelements, domains,view...etc. The rest of all the modified repository objects will be listed in SPAU.

    What happens to the modifications done in the older version when we upgrade the version? (with Modification assistant and w/o)

    Ans: After the initial upgrade happens, we have to do adjustments from SPAU/SPDD to maintain or reset the changes. That is, from the list of objects in SPAU/SPDD, you have to either carry forward the changes to the new version, by choosing the option ADOPT CHANGES (available on right click) or RESET TO ORIGINAL (available on right click).

    Will they come in these transactions?

    Ans: yes, they will be listed in these transactions, after the BASIS updgrade activity.

    And what if we apply some patches(Notes) to the system? What is the impact of these patches to the SPAU transaction?

    Ans: Patches will be supported by the version upgrade. In case of notes, we have to verify whether these notes are supported by the new version (you can go into http://www.service.sap.com/notes to verify this. Also, we have to analyze whther the code in the note is already incorporated in the new version. In this case you can ignore the chanes choosing RESET TO ORIGINAL option
