If you shorten a column, data might exist in the database which will be truncated. There's a special and "dangerous" tool to use named database utility (via SE11 menu or SE14). Ask an experienced developer in order to avoid losing data (which may lead to restoring the whole database...)

Here i have increased the length from 12 to 20..not shorten the length.

And after increasing, you did "keep it back for the original length" (as you said). If it's wrong, then please clarify.

Are there messages in the activation log, read them, correct them, activate again, loop. In case of doubt, post the exact error.

Yes i checked the activation log , in that some tables are not active, so i tried to activate it but 2 tables(idoc related) are not able to activate it. Because of these 2 tables domain also partially active..what is the solution for this?

If you go from 12 to 20, and then cancelling by shortening from 20 to 12, you must use the database utility.

Tried with database utility also but 2 tables are still partially active.

sandra.rossi I had an issu like this, but reading oss note, you could find the copy of the table before changes were made. So you don't need a restore, just to find this table

frdric.girod I know that, but if you force a failed adjustment, it may lead to lose this restore table. At least, it was the situation in the past, I don't know if it's still the same, maybe the SAP note tells more about it.

As raymond suggested, post the details (name of standard table if any, activation log, database utility, etc.) Note that only experienced developers should use database utility (also, to follow the SAP note to use the database utility). An experienced developer should be able to easily fix the issue you are talking about. Experienced developers can remotely do it only if they know the details of what happened, logs and so on.
