Client Rename Using ABAP Program

Hello Friends,

Can we use ABAP Program with UPDATE statement to update the client number instead of using local client copy.

What are drawbacks or consequences of the same.

Thanks and Best Regards,

Aman

      Hello,

      The best way would be doing Client copy. As you do not know internally there may be dependancies for the table and also you are not aware what happens behind the scenes of a client copy. I guess just changing the name in client field of the tables is not going to help you.

      best regards,

    Open-sql statements wont allow to change a primary key value, so client/mandt field, so answer would be NO, else you should be required to use native sql at your own risks, and you will get some problems with cluster and pool tables.Some data like logical systems are related to client but not in client dependant table, or even not with the mandt they refer to... Try to raise an OSS message after that...

    Of course there won't be any longer data in the original client, why don't you want to use client copy ?

    Regards,

    Raymond
