    I think the info objects are already present in the system. And if you are installing them again it gives this message.

    Or check if these infoobjects already present with different description.

    please check and let us know.

    hope it helps.

    Hi Anup,

    Match (X) or Copy

    If the SAP delivery version and the active version can be matched, a checkbox is displayed in this column.

    With the most important object types, the active version and the SAP delivery version can be matched.

    From a technical point of view, the SAP delivery version (D version) is matched with the M version. As in most cases the M version is identical to the active version (A version) in a customer system, this is referred to as a match between the D and A versions for reasons of simplification.

    When a match is performed, particular properties of the object are compared in the A version and the D version. First it has to be decided whether these properties can be matched automatically or whether this has to be done manually. A match can be performed automatically for properties if you can be sure that the object is to be used in the same way as before it was transferred from Business Content. When performing matches manually you have to decide whether the characteristics of a property from the active version are to be retained, or whether the characteristics are to be transferred from the delivery version.

    Example of an automatic match

    Additional customer-specific attributes have been added to an InfoObject in the A version. In the D version, two additional attributes have been delivered by SAP that do not contain the customer-specific attributes. In order to be able to use the additional attributes, the delivery version has to be installed from Business Content again. At the same time, the customer-specific attributes are to be retained. In this case, you have to set the indicator (X) in the checkbox. After installing the Business Content, the additional attributes are available and the customer-specific enhancements have been retained automatically. However, if you have not checked the match field, the customer-specific enhancements in the A version are lost.

    Please check: [Installing Business Content|] for more info.

    Hope it Helps
