If the user implements the manual corrections of note 1600194, a new field in customizing table BBP_EXTPO_GL is added and the view V_BBP_EXTPO_GL is also modified. But in some cases it is not possible to save the value of this new field in the database when it is checked / unchecked via spro transaction.

If such a situation is encountered we can follow the steps below which are a modification of manual activities of note 1600194.

Step1: Open the table BBP_EXTPO_GL in SE11 transaction
