    Hi,

    afaik, SAP user ID is stored on table USR02 on field BNAME and data element XUBNAME type CHAR with

    maximum length 12. Although CHAR allow more than 12 character length, but SAP standards delivers username (USR02-BNAME) maximum for 12 character-long only.

    modify SAP standard should be avoided to meet your purpose, but if it is needed, you may contact SAP Global Support first, elaborate your need and asking whether negative impact will follow that change.

    to change, ask your ABAP to change this (or any user with developer access key)

    hope it help you.

    rgds,

    Hi,

    It is not advisable to change to the SAP standard field length. Because the field may be dependece on number of other tables/reports. If you try to change the field size at the domain level by using the access keys this may effect to the entire system tables. So the ultimate result will be system is unable to retieve any data from the tables. It is very critical.

    Cheers...
