Changing data class of a table

Former Member

Hi Guys,

I am having problems on changing the data class from USER (Customer Data Class) to APPL0 (Master Data, Transparent Tables). The table already exist and contains 200+ records already. I tried changing the data class in the technical settings but when I am trying to save the changes this error occurs:

Cannot access file /usr/sap/MD7/trans/sapnames/GALT_P

What could be the possible fix for this error? GALT_P is in the last changed field.

Though I am not sure of the probable solution but i would like you to check the following:-

1. Do u have change rights on the file path mentioned in the error?Please check with the BASIS team.

2.Also check is it because of the removal of the user files for GALT_P.Where i suppose it is searching kind of archives of the transport.

Goto Tcode se14 and there you can activate the table which is giving error message
