COPA retraction change characteristic values

Former Member

I have a little question conserning COPA retraction.

In BPS we had the problem that the init value was not working correctly for the row/line selection. From SP 13 this problem is solved. But meanwhile we entered the data with the notion NAP(not applicable) in stead of leaving it blanc when the user didn't need to enter anything.

But now when we retract to COPA we receive the message that NAP doesn't exist. Is there a way with the user exit COPA00RE to change this during retraction?

Is there anyone who has some sample coding for this?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Mark,

I have tried another solution, I developed a new "retraction cube" on top of the transactional and in the update rules I changed the NAP. But a reposting will also do the job.

Hi Kris,

why don't you run a repost function in BPS before the retraction?
