Batch History in Batch Management Cockpit: index report not updating table

After having setup batch history for the batch management cockpit (e.g. definition of the BRO types, ...) I have done an initial run with RVBOBJTABUPD to fill the table TOBJ_D_INDEX with data for one material. This worked out without any issues and the history data can be displayed in the BMBC.

Now I have modified some of the BRO (batch related object) types, e.g. added additional fields (like event time) or modified them (like removal of one attribute and addition of another one).

I now would expect to run the report again, and then get these changes to be reflected in the history. This does not work for me, the data/table seems to be not updated. Only new data is added, the existing one remains untouched.

The following checks I already performed:

- deactivated all BRO in the customizing, ran the report, activated them again and ran the report again -> no change

- checked OSS: as we are on Rel 604 SP 0009 the notes for RVBOBJTABUPD are already in the system

Does anyone have an idea how to also update existing data within this table?

Regards

Martin

    SAP has confirmed that it is by design that the table only gets updated and not overwritten. In case entries should be reinitialized both tables (index and update table) have to be cleared manually before (e.g. via SE16N).

    • Hello Ram,

      I think you did not properly check my post: we are on SP09 already.

      - 1347724: solved with SP04

      - 1338328: solved with SP04

      - 1339279: solved with SP04

      - 1339000: solved with SP04

      - 1338940: solved with SP04

      - 1336097: solved with SP04

      Plus all notes do not seem to address my problem: it is not BMBC, it is the indexing report that does not work correctly! Any additional idea?

      Regards

    I did also a quick check on the data dictionary, and the table itself has not been changed since it has been delivered by SAP. It also is set by default to maintenance category "X" (display/maintenance allowed), so this should not be the problem either.

    Of course I now could go ahead and manually delete the content of the table before running the report, but as in the end I would need to run it as a daily background job this should not be the final solution...

    Regards
