Need to rollback SPAM from 70135 to 70035

Hi all,

I've made a terrible mistake. This is the chain of events.

My BI system is ABAP 700.SPS14.

I decided to test an install to NW 7.01.

First thing I did was update to SPAM 70035. (you know we have always been told to do this first).

I then decided to update kernel to 701.23 manually first because I had a problem with VisualC++ libraries on SolMan.

I then did another SPAM update to 70135.

At this point I was told there is some BI development required so to go play on another system, so I manually restored the 700 kernel and gave the system back to them (no DB restore though).

Lot's of development happened while I went away and played with EHPI on another system. We consequently decided that EHPI was too hard at this stage (we had java problems on PI and we don't have an SAPOSS yet so the process is massive).

We now decide that we will just upgrade BI to 700.SPS20 for now and do 701 later.

The problem is SPAM/SAINT gets short dumps because it is now SPAM 70135 running on a 700 kernel.

I can't restore the database back because of the BI development that has occured.

How do I get back to SPAM 70035. I thought possibly SPAM 70036 would import OK (I haven't tried yet). Or maybe I could forcefully re-import the SPAM 70035 import again at the command line(of course with a new DB backup in case that fails too).

Can somebody please provide advise on this?

Kind regards,
