HI Suneetha,

YOu have already done this? Please contact your basis to get the data back.

Ther will be an option in se14 for retaining the data. YOu should check that option and then adjust the database.

If you are doing the table adjustments , first you need to download the data from table , then only you need to do the table adjustments. if data deleted from the table , then download the data from Test system or production system into excel sheet and write a program in development system to upload this data .
