COPA Upgrade 4.6 ECC6 TC KE30 Display report old variants are no longer av
When opening a report we get the message:
Report will be converted automatically! -> see long text
Message no. KH305
The structure of the internal tables for the report changed when you upgraded your system. The report definition therefore needs to be adapted to fit the new table structures. This procedure is called "conversion".
The system will attempt to convert the report automatically. If this is done without errors, you can continue processing the report.
Frozen report data will be lost during this conversion.
It is possible to convert all the reports for an application using the report monitor (Transaction KEMO).
To run this is no problem, but when I select a variant I get in some cases the error:
Variant C903-A-CY of program GP8MOGSR6I6KYM5CMRYTM5GY5LY is not the current version
Message no. DB634
You attempted to start report GP8MOGSR6I6KYM5CMRYTM5GY5LY using variant C903-A-CY. Since this variant was generated, the report SELECT-OPTIONS or PARAMETERs have changed considerably, i.e. the type or length no longer match and PARAMETERs have become SELECT-OPTIONS or vice versa. Many of these changes are so serious that even attempting to import the variant results in runtime errors.
Adjust or delete the variant
Is there a way to solve this or do we have to make screen prints in the old version and when going live to create (change) them?
