Object changeability: why are some queries now unmodifiable..?

Hi Experts

I recently had BASIS open our BW Production client so I could activate a cube that had been deactivated after a transport to BWP. Then BASIS closed the client (setting = unmodifiable).

After this, some queries in Production are now not available for change. We get this message:


You want to change objects although the system setting is "Not Changeable".

System Response

The objects cannot be changed.


Change the setting for the system or client to "changeable". You can do this using transaction SE06 or SCC4.

For some reason this only occurs for some queries, not all. Some are OK to change, just as they were before.

The client settings are unchanged. I have checked the object changeability options in the Transport Connection - just about everything is set to Everything Changeable or Changeable Original.

Why have some of our queries suddenly become non-changeable??

Points will be given of course for any advice. Thanks in advance
