Implications in Updating VBUK/VBUP for Inbound Delivery Documents?

Hi Experts,

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 ...

Processing Status of Inbound Delivery

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.
