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.
- Call transaction se37
- Call function block RSDMD_MDMT
- Put a breakpoint in line 281
- Call transaction rsdmd
- Select characteristic
- Select Variablel_use_old_ui with a double click
- Change Value
- Set value to X and then press Enter
Now it is possible to maintain the characteristic in the BW.
