Transport COPA Value fields

Hello Experts,

I have the scenario wherein we need to change the description of certain value fields & transport it to test & production system. I know this can be done via KE3I in which we can transport the entire operating concern but my interest lies in whether there are any potential impacts on production system in which there is already transaction data? Does this function transport the entire customization tables of COPA ? If transported to live environment, any impacts?

These questions are only to those COPA experts who have transported operating concerns for live systems containg transaction data.

Regards,

Amol

    Hi Amol,

    You are correct. It will transport the entire customization tables of COPA. It will not have impact on transactional data. In some case many people are doing direct changes related to COPA in production system. So, before transporting the customization you need to check whether such type of activity has happened before.

    If it only relates to change in description of Value field, I will suggest to change directly in test or Production system.

    Hi

    I am interested to know why you are looking for this change if want to change for reporting purpose you can change in BW from where we are getting the reports .

    when you regenerate Operating concern, the old data needs to be dropped and reloaded again

    which is a mamoth task and not advisable by SAP as well ,as dropping data and reloading the same their is no validation cycle for the same

    Thanks
