Substitution on complete document level - Error


I'm trying to create a substitution step on complete document but I have the following error:

You may not substitute any fields for this Event

Message no. GB175


Although substitutions are permitted for the boolesche class 15 (application area FI, Event 0003), the application did not release any field for substitution.

System Response

Processing is terminated. You cannot change any field for this Event (even within a substitution exit). Defining a substitute therefore makes no sense.


If the substitution is a substitution belonging to the FI application component, you can release fields for substitution (as described in OSS note 42615). Note that for most fields, this action implies a modification to the SAP standard system.

I read the OSS SAP notes but I didn't undestand how to proceed.

Thanks a lot

    Do as below

    SM30 -> VWTYGB01 : First display and chekc whether the filed you are substituting in GGB1 is available or not. If not maintain it.

    They will as below

    Boolean Class - 15

    15 Refers to fields that can be substituted BKPF *

    15 Refers to fields that can be substituted BSEG *

    Ask you Basis team whether the OSS note 42615 has been implememented or not. Ask them the impact of it once they implement.

      I made the changes in GB01 table and now I can add the step but I have another error.

      I cannot write the prerequisite that is BSEG-XXXX (it is a custom field) = ' '

      I'm afraid that it is not possible because if i'm in prerequisite in the tab Table fields in the list of structures I have:

      Structure BKPF

      Table BSEG

      Structure SYST

      Why is there Table BSEG and not Structure BSEG?

      Or it is anotherre issue?

      Thanks a lot
