Best time to transport Z append structures

Post by sapmanie » Tue Aug 21, 2018 8:57 am

Hi,
Just wondering about best practice...

If a Z append structure already exists in a table, e.g. BKPF, does it matter when a new field is transported or should it happen in system quiet times?

Thks,
sapmanie

Ok thanks snowy!
I knew that changing the original SAP tables (new field via OSS note for example) were always done in quiet times (i.e. periods of low activity on the system) but I thought customer appends were different.
Thanks!
