Hi,

SAP doesnt recommend modifying standard data elements.

If you do a where use on that data element you would find the tables affected.

Since you are increasing the field width, there shouldnt be a problem, but as far as possible try to avoid it. Use APpend structure to add your own field of 11 characters instead.

Best regards,

Prashant

(1) Changing the standard (outside of enhancement like exit or BADI) should only be used when no other solution exists. (Like appending table with a customer field)

(2) KONZS <u>data element</u> is linked to KONZS <u>domain</u>, so if really you MUST do it, change the domain

(3) Run before the next update/upgrade of the system
