SAP BW 7.4 Maintain characteristics 

Unfortunately, SAP shifted the maintenance of master data in SAP BW 7.4 into the Web. Not everyone wants to maintain the master data on the Web. Here is a small workaround.

  1. Call transaction se37
  2. Call function block RSDMD_MDMT
  3. Put a breakpoint in line 281
  4. Call transaction rsdmd
  5. Select characteristic
  6. Run
  7. Select Variablel_use_old_ui with a double click
  8. Change Value
  9. Set value to X and then press Enter
  10. Run

Now it is possible to maintain the characteristic in the BW.

    Hi Tobias,

    Our production is very secure so I cannot change variable values in debug mode. I will try to copy the RSDMD_ MDMT function instead. And the calling program RSDMD_MDMT_WITH_F4 . Great trick .
    Danke schön.

    Hi Guy,

    thanks for your comment. Yes you could build your own Z-Program which opens the old ui.

    If it works feel free to contact me again.
