After a copy of a system to a new system (like a sandbox) you will find out the custom objects have a different original system and all changes will result into modification editor in stead of the normal ABAP editor.
Questions that will be answered in this blog are:
- How to change original system of an object?
- How to mass change original system of all Z objects in one shot?
Changing original system of an object
To change on original system of an object first start transaction SE03 to go to the transport organizer tools:
Select the tool Change Object Directory Entries:
Here you can select a specific program, function group, etc. In our case, we do a selection on the original system. This will give list of all objects with that original system:
If you select an object and press the Change Object Directory button, you can change the original system of a single object.
To execute a mass change you need select the top node first and then give in a command (not a menu option): key in mass in the command part:
Then hit enter and a new hidden popup will come:
Now enter the new original system and press Ok. All is change in one shot now.
If for some reason it does not work you can use the below emergency program:
DATA: zlt_tadir TYPE TABLE OF
DATA: zls_tadir TYPE tadir.
SELECT * FROM tadir INTO
TABLE zlt_tadir WHERE srcsyste m EQ 'SRC'.
LOOP AT zlt_tadir INTO zls_
zls_tadir-srcsystem = 'TAR'.
MODIFY tadir FROM zls_tadir
