Has anyone come across any issues with being unable to view the correct 'Show History' information after performing an upgrade from 2005 to SAP 8.8? For example I have a sales order which was entered by the user 'John' on the 2005 system and this user name is listed on the 'Tools' -> 'Show History' screen however when i check the same screen on SAP 8.8, the username is 'manager'.
Why would this be?
check this [note Note 1507528 - Behavior change of history tables in the database|https://websmp230.sap-ag.de/sap(bD1lbiZjPTAwMQ==)/bc/bsp/spn/sapnotes/index2.htm?numm=1507528]
In 8.8 version, when creating an item, a marketing document or a business partner(BP) and checking the history tables, such as AITM, ADOC, ACRD, you find there is no record in the tables related to the created item, document or BP. The record only exists in master data tables, such as OITM, OINV, OCRD.
When changing the existing item, document or BP, the record for final update will only be stored in master data tables. Records except the final update are stored in history tables.
