Copy Express distorting data

Hello

We have used Copy Express to copy one database into another.

This has led to several data corruption :

- loss of tax account in the tax settings

- change of item group code number (without a proper renumbering of data)

- copy of one user table into another one

Copy was done folder by folder (but we didn't do it all in one go) and I didn't untick any customisation.

We are in B1 2007 patch 37.

Has anyone seen those type of problem ? How did you solve it ?

Thanks

Fabrice

    Hello

    The first link didn't work. I cannot get into the partner area. Could you put somewhere accessible to customers ??? I will get charged 100$ by my consultants for their time to get it (which for once is normal).

    Regarding the second thread, I have followed similar steps. And the data looks good in most places. Just some places are upside down. Patch 37 issue ???

    • Hi,

      It could be probably the patch issue. Currently it is even the PL41 available. you will spend a lot of money to download the patch, won't you ? That is SAP B1. Patch level seems available biweekly.

      I suggest to ask the SAP support by submit a ticket. To do this, if you are an end user, SAP Partner that have been received SAP B1 maintenance program fee from you will do that.

    Hi Fabrice,

    I am afraid there could be possibly wrong steps in using copy express.

    There is a pdf file that could be download free from this link:

    https://websmp108.sap-ag.de/~form/sapnet?_SHORTKEY=01100035870000658846&_SCENARIO=01100035870000000183&_ADDINC=&_OBJECT=011000358700000050892007E

    The pdf file name is expert empowerment copy express transport issue, January 17, 2007.

    you will find all things about copy express but in short and clear explanation.

    Rgds,
