HI,

There should not be any problem.

Just adjust the table via SE14 after you are done.

There wont be any issue, if you change the domain of a field in custom table.

You need to run transaction SE14 and click on " Activate and Adjust database" with save data radio button selected.

As per your requirement , there will be no effect on data stored in database table.

But, we should avoid these sort of changes , unless absolutly necessary.

hi

you simply delete the old one and make a new one........

it will not create any issue..

and if in syntax check it is showing the warning then go to se14 and click on adjust button over there...

Hi aravindh

There wont be any change in the saved data if u change the domian name.

As u r changing the domain name you need to go to transaction 'SE14', enter your table name.

Click on Activate and Adjust database.

As far as Data Type and length are same there wont be any issue.

Issue comes when the new data length is shorter than the older one. In that case data gets truncated and in some cases completely lost.

Hope it clarifies your doubts about this.
