EKPO Extension

Hi Experts

Through EKPO extension we are trying to add 3 new fields. Can anyone suggest us what will be the drawbacks and what will happen to the existing data in the system.

As long as the added fields to the structure OI0_EKPO_EXT  are not key fields , there wont be any impact to it.  Ensure that you do the SE14 Adjustment in background only post addtion

What about when transporting the change

Is a table re-org involved and could there be some down time?

Table re-org is what we do in SE14 , To Adjust and Activate the changes .

1. Ensure that you do not select the "Delete Data" while activating in SE14.

2. Ensure that you do it in the background mode only . 

During Transport ensure that no active background jobs are active which could possibly use this table.

On a safer note , move the transport over the weekend when theres not much activity/scheduled jobs

A database re-org is different from adjusting the table through SE14. Depending on the change to the structure, adjusting the database may or may not be necessary.

The need for a database re-org would be determined independently.
