Implications in Updating VBUK/VBUP for Inbound Delivery Documents?
Recently I had a requirment that needed me to mark the status of inbound delivery documents to "Completed". I tried looking at some possible methods here in the fourms and came up with this thread ...
One of the answers here was to update the SAP table directly.
I looked up the tables and it seems that the tables in question are VBUK/VBUP and fields GBSTK and GBSTA respectivley. I tried it myself in the development box and the document flow of the delivery document has changed from "Open" to "Completed".
My questions are ....
What are the implications if I were to update the VBUK and VBUP tables directly?
Will there be a negative impact in the dependent tables of the Inbound Delivery Document? If there is what measures can I take to avoid them?
If there is no negative impact are there any other tables i need to update?
Is there another (perhaps Safer) way I can mark the status as complete?
Hope to hear from all of you soon.
Thank you and good day.
