    Hi VIjay,

    I dont know what is the issue at your end. But i can tell you that I work on ECC6.0 and when i have the client closed in test and production environments, we can still maintain V_T001B.

    As i understand, there are tables in FI that can be mainained via SM30 without opening the client and i suppose V_T001B is one such table.

    Just for information:

    Irrespective of me being able to maintain the table vai SM30, You could have a Z-Transaction ZSM31 created for end-users. Have V_T001B as a maintainable table via ZSM3. This is particularly useful for a transaction like OB52 (V_T001B) because, if a user in Spain is in SM30 on the table, he would be able to change table data for all other countries. so what you could do is to give access on ZSM31 for the table with a restriction on the posting period variant for which the user can maintain data (F_BKPF_BUP) - The table is secured by this

    Did i sound confusing???? 😊

    If you search service.sap.com/notes to the name of the view, you will very easily find the explanation.

    Possibly your SCC4 client role is not set correctly as well.

    Cheers,

      Vijay,

      OB52 maintains the underlying view table V_T001B. As Alex and Julius suggest:

      1 Check to make sure that the client role is set to Production in the productive client in SCC4 (which already must be the case as otherwise a majority of the business transactions will have issues).

      2. V_T001B belongs to the delivery class CUST. For these objects to be maintained in Production a aspect called current settings comes into the picture. Go to transaction SOBJ-->Display. In the next screen click on position and input the object V_T001B.

      Click the details button. Here you should see the current settings option checked. If it is not checked, thats the reason why the table is not maintainable. I see in ECC 6.0 that the current settings option is checked by default for V_T001B (transaction OB52).

      Regards,

      Prashant

      Vijay,

      I am afraid that was the only option. But i see that your target client is a test client. I dont see why you cant get the client settings changed to allow a change for the period that you want to use it. (I guess you have your reaons though).

      Regards,

      Prashant

    Google for SAP "delivery class" and you'll probabely find usable suggestions.
