Export to unicode conversion before SPAU????

Hello there,

I am on a middle of an Upgrade from 4.7 to ECC6.0 EHP4 on DB2. I started the upgrade and chose the UPGRADE & UNICODE CONVERSION option. The upgrade is on the 7th phase and ask me to adjust the SPAU.

But I noticed that ....to have my system on UNICODE, I have to do an export/import process. But I have not done yet the SPAU and there are a lot of objects to adjust.

My question is.... CAN I do the export/import process BEFORE ADJUST the SPAU??? Could that be risky????

Or DO I MUST adjust the SPAU first and after the export/import process???

Thank you and regards.

    Hi Diana,

    technically there is no hard restriction to execute the SPAU after the Unicode conversion.

    However you need to have a look at SAP note 638357 for general transport restrictions (Unicode - Non-Unicode).

    In addition, please check SAP note 194321.

    Hi,

    It is recommended to run SPAU to check for repaired object.

    As per Note: 928729 Combined Upgrade & Unicode Conversion FAQ

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers
