Target Audience

Consultants or users working on SAP Upgrade project within SAP for Utilities solution space.


Default user-defined layout in EL31 is not selected after the upgrade from SAP ERP ECC release 600 to EHP7 for SAP ERP 6.0.


After analysis, the reason for this issue is found that, additional fields were introduced in the customizing table TE410S as of IS-UT 605. In these cases, modifications in the source code that are implemented via modification correction instructions (and that may require a SPAU comparison after each SP/EHP upgrade) are not required.

However, these TE410S fields are currently only visible in the maintenance dialog if the EHP5 switch is active.

This affects the following modifications:

902223              TE410S-EL31_COUNT_BLOCK

526696              TE410S-EL31_DEFAULT_LAY

911149              TE410S-EL348_FOLLOWUP

933567              TE410S-ELHR_BEFORE_MRR2

1300006            TE410S-ELHR_PREV_INVALI


As per the SAP Note 526696, select ‘Default Layout’ from either table maintenance view of table TE410S or below spro path:

Spro -> SAP Utilities -> Device Management -> Meter Reading -> Basic Settings -> Define Technical Control Parameters for Meter Reading Data Processing

After maintaining this, the user-defined layout maintained before the upgrade can be used and selected now.
