Hi,

Does anyone know if I need to have any special care when transporting a new index in a SAP standard table for produtive system, when the users are using the produtive system ?

Thanks,

Paulo Sousa

    Make sure the new index is activated and created in the database.

    Also have the DBAs update the statistics for the table.

    Caution:

    Transporting a new index for a really large table is a good way of annoying your users, and your boss as well.

    That's because table will be locked. And it may last for minutes, sometimes for hours.

    Good news:

    There are workarounds.

    For a start:
