SAP wont save data if user 1(role A) inserts data, but it saves data if data is entered by user 2 (role B)?


I have real strange problem with XD02 transaction. I will try to explain it using simple example.

One month ago, user 1 (with role A) and user 2 (with role B) had enter data in transaction XD02 and could save it without any problems.

Before three days ago, user 1 (with role A) can save data entered in transaction XD02 but user 2 (with role B) can't save data (there is no error message, it simply doesn't save changes!).

Now, my question is: could it be that role B have some malfunction or perhaps there is another reason why this is happening?

Many thanks in advance for prompt replies!

    Check for update terminations in SM13.

    It's rather strange for a transaction to allow making changes and not saving. If a user has no authorization for certain object, usually SAP doesn't even let them into that object. Allowing to make a change and not saving looks like a programming bug. Since there is a specific time when this started, check what transports went in on that date or few days before. There could be some bug in a user exit. If there is no custom development, send a message to SAP.

    If something worked before and stopped working then obviously something must have changed.

    • Hello,

      I forgot to mention one important part, sorry: transaction which doesn't show data is custom transaction named "z_test" which is directly related to transaction XD02.. I think problem could be in some of the past transports...

      My question is this: is there any simple way I could check what could be the problem or how to track what happened? I don't need direct solution because it takes time to solve this issue, I only need to find how this could happened?

      Thank you,

    Little but important update: It looks like that SAP can't save data on one location while on another location it saves without any problems, with same SAP licence username/password. First I thought problem was in XD02 or custom transaction but now I think it depends on location where data is added? Is this possible and how to solve it?

    • The initial question was about XD02, now it's some custom transaction and now it's "location" (whatever it means). Plot thickens...

      I agree with the last post - just have an ABAPer look at it already. We can't help with the custom transactions.

    you would request the abaper to debug it.
