Cannot Change Methode Visibilty

0 Kudos


basically I am redefining an inherited method. In this method there is a call to another methode in the super class that carries the same name.

As I wanted to activate the redefinition an error occured which states that the methode called in my code is reither unknown or protected or private which means I need to change visibility. Long story short I could not change the visibility in the change options of the methode.

This is my first post so any help is appreciated 

Thank you in advance

Hi @_Baker can you share a screenshot of the class definition showing how the method is defined and a screenshot of your code inside the redefined method?

You can only redefine public or protected methods.

You cannot change the visibility of a redefined method.

See the ABAP documentation for the official details.
