Hello everybody,

i have to upload the Patch KB70015.SAR, at the phase following message is display

Phase RUN_SPAU_?: Information on Objects Modified in System

The import was completed successfully. This means that all the

Repository objects that were imported are now activated in the shipped

original state.

The system detected however that 27 of the Repository objects in the

Support Packages have been modified in your system

Check whether you want to retain or restore these changes you have made.

To do this, call transaction SPAU (choose 'Call SPAU').

For more information about performing the modification adjustment, see

'Modification Adjustment Help'.

If you want to continue importing the queue immediately, choose

'Continue'.

Now my problem is that, How to find 27 objects that are modified? and How to retain or restore

please suggest me

Thanks

Ganesh

The SPAU list will show you the objects which you have modified in your system and now the support pack is also updating the same.

These changes maybe your custom changes or probably you have modified them for some notes.

But now the support pack is having the same notes. So SAP is finding difficulty in determining your changes.

Suppose you have made some note changes.

As a practice we generally add some comments in the standard program before making the changes specified in the notes.

Say for example

  • begin of note changes as per note number xxxxx by author xxx on date xxxxx.

---piece of standard code here

  • end of note changes as per note number xxxxx by author xxx on date xxxxx.

Now when SAP is bringing the note changes in the support pack; it tries to overwrite the code at the same line. But it finds that you have added some new lines (your comments)

So it cannot identify the exact changes and hence the object comes in SPAU list for you to adjust.

Now there are 3 lights available

Red; Green and Yellow.

If suppose you had made the modifications via SNOTE and making use of the modification assistant

then SAP would not have had any problem in identifying your changes and therefore the object would come up in green. In that case you have to just click on the green button and it gets adjusted automatically.

If you have made your changes directly without making use of SNOTE or modification assistant then the object would come in yellow,

It means that SAP feels that the changes are correct but something additional is also there.

In that case when you click on the yellow icon it would open a split screen editor and that would give you your current object and the new object which SAP is bringing( Original).

So now you can make the adjustments and proceed.

If you have made some drastic changes ; say added your new functionality then the object would come in RED. In this case SAP cannot proceed without you adjusting teh code as required.

In this case also it would give you the split screen editor to make the adjustments properly.

So you have to proceed on these lines and make all the objects green else your support pack application would not be complete.

An original means the program which SAP has imported with the support pack.

So when you do 'RESET TO ORIGINAL' it would mean that you are accepting what SAP is giving you with the new support pack and you do not want your changes done.

I hope this helps you.

Hi Ganesh,

You can do Continue here. To retail the earlier verion once Support Patch is applied you need to go in SPAU Tcode go to the individual object with yellow triangle and do Reset To Original

Hope this helps!

How to find 27 objects that are modified?

-> SPAU - The Objects with Yello ICON

How to retain or restore?

-> Right click and say "Reset to Original"
