Dear All,

I am unable to modify data element created in z namespace. I go to SE11 and even though I go to change mode I am unable to change the data element.

There is no problem with authorization and I already have entered SSCR key.

Please help.

Warm Regards

Mazdul

Hi,

Can you explain you issue in more details.

If you are saying that it is a Z data element then it would not require any SSCR key.

What problems are you exactly facing while changing the data element?

Try changing the data element directly via SE11 by entering the data element not via table.

Hi,

Can you please explain a bit more on the scenario? What error you are getting?Why do you need a SSCR key for modifying Z - element? Or are you referring to the ABAP developer key?

Thanks and Regards

I mentioned that I already have an SSCR key regitsterd.

For changing the z data element, i go to SE11, put the name of the data element and click on change mode. Now even though I am in change mode, the various fields in it are not modifiable and looks like in display mode. No error message I get. It is just that the message above says i am in editable mode, but I am not able to edit the data element.

Can you tell us what are the VARIOUS fields you means here?

Tell the name of the field which you are trying to modify?

Hi Chowdhury,

Did you check in SM04 whether anyother user is editing or modifying the similar data elements??

If not then they might have been locked for some other reasons during the activation.

Hi,

We donu2019t require sscr key to modify Z elements, I think u might have been asked to save the dictionary elements in a package provided to u for which u may have only write access. I suppose u can contact the basis and get the issue resolved.

I have faced same problem before.

Hi,

In which version of SAP are you and in which system?

If you are in ECC 6 and in a system other than where the data element was created then probably the modification assistant is on and that is the reason why you are not able to change the data element.

In the menu function EDIT you will be able to switch off teh assistant and do your modifications.

Hi Ankur,

Thanks a lot for this. I was able to do the modifications. Our dev system has been copied from another Dev system. We hvae just upgraded our system to ECC6 from 4.7.

But I get a warning that the changes will not get recorded in detail if the modification assistant is switched off. Any work around for this ?

Thanks once again.

Warm Regards

Hi,

Either you can switch off the assistant and make changes normally or keep the assistant and using the menu options available under Edit you make changes as required.

If NO dependency is there, try DELETE that data element and recreate it again with your desired DOMAIN.

Hi....

U can use the se14 and from there adjust database to make the adjustment in the database and after that you can change the data element in se11.....

Check for any user using your Data element through the T/Code: SM12 and delete them.

In a system which has been copied from another system, the object directory entry for all its object remains the source system unless it is changed manualy after system copy.

The post migration activities after system copy changes the object directory entry(SE06).

But if this is not done, the object directory entry can be changed from SE03 --> Change object directory entry.

se11->change mode->edit->switch off assistant.

It will allow to change.
