Changing length of Asset Super Number
In Asset Accounting, we have defined 5 character Asset Super Numbers, which are being used currently. Our users have requested that we increase the length of the Asset Super Number that we use to 7 characters.
I assume that we can do this as it appears that this is a freely
definable field, but they also would like the existing numbers which have already been defined, to be changed to 7 characters.
From my understanding of the Asset Super Number field, it is used mainly as a grouping field for reporting.
What is the impact of changing the existing Asset Super Numbers to 7 characters? Is it just a matter of changing them in table V_T087U and also changing the relevant Asset master records to which these Super Numbers have been assigned? Will this have any adverse effects on the already existing data?
