Hi Techies ,
I have got this task of changing the data type of the certain fields which are now of type dec,date to char
suiting one of the business needs.
Apparently it is a simple task and but have found it needs more research.
Steps I have planned to do :
1. Changing the type of the fields in the table which may result in changed date format to yyyymmdd and numerical values would result no change in their value
2.Finding the reports that use these fields in their arithmetic operations and disply, Correcting the reports
to make no flaw during execution and display
Are there any other checks I need make in order that this field type conversion would not make any flaw throughout production system.
As these field affect the more number of program, I think, The inputs from you guys would lead the successful execution of this task
Should I also need to deal with BAPIs and others associated objects.
Please provide your inputs on it.
I apprecite your valuable inputs
