i am new to PM module.
i need to do BDC for IW31. i want to know some inforamtion
on user status for each opertaion.
my problem is ,, what is user status.
why it is saying order is not yet released when saving and status can not set.
in this cases how can i do BDC.
User status are something set in the configuration and specific to the company which SAP hasn't given in the system status.
May be in your system user status are configured to set only after the release of the order.
For doing the userstatus you may need to release the order, you can release the order thru bdc and then do bdc for user status. Also see below link
As rightly mentioned in the previous reply user setting is related to the configuration according to different companies. These user statuses are maintained by the companies to track the status of the particular order.
In case you want to change the status of the order you can use the Function Module STATUS_CHANGE_EXTERN. Hope this helps.
