Enhance LO Cockpit Application 17

I am working on LO Cockpit application 17. I want to enhance extract structure MCVGIH which is used for Order/operation. I wanted to know do I need to add new fields starting with 'Z' or I can use them as in table. For example, I want to add field LTXA1. Can I add this field directly in append structure or should I add it as ZZLTXA1. What should be the correct approach? If I add it as LTXA1 then it picks up value directly at runtime and I don't have to do coding in user exit. Is that true?

Any comment will be helpful.

    Hi Milind,

    When you try to enhance extract structure MCVGIH you won't be able to introduce fields not starting with 'Z' or at least you would get a warning. The correct approach would be introducing fields starting with 'Z' as in this case you ensure that in future upgrades of R/3 you won't have any conflict.

    On the other hand, you probably will have to codify the exit in both cases, once I had the same situation with the same field names (in table and extract structure) and I was expecting not to codify but I had to. Maybe your case is different and you are lucky, just try it.

      Hi Milind,

      with no doubt, you have to add your field in append with a ZZ* name (if not already available on LBWE maintenance) and then to code some logic in the specific user exit for transactional data (EXIT_SAPLRSAP_001) in order to fill your 'custom' field.

      I say 'custom' even if this field comes from a standard table because in the extraction module of your datasource there is no possibility to change the extraction logic and to say 'ok, now fill this added field from the x table' have to do this only in userexit before mentioned !

      Hope it helps (and please don't forget to assign some points by clickin'on the yellow star to the contributors that help you !!!)
