Coding Mask Change

Hi All

I m trying to change the digits on my coding mask for the Project ID, but I keep getting the error - CJ611.

I went into the OSS note 453280 but havent been able to find a suitable solution.

Any ideas?

Thanks much

The note on Wiki states that you can only:

1) Change a numeric section to an alpahmumeric section of the same length

2) Extend the coding mask with an alphanumeric section

In the case provided by you, you are trying change the length of the coding mask (there are other voilations as well). You cannot change the coding mask as proposed by you through standard SAP practices. However, a workaround exists (as stated in the note):

1) Run the report ZZADJUSTPOSID of note 453280 to adjust the project and WBS element numbers as much as possible in background. Some dialogue may, however, nevertheless occur.

2) Run the report ZVERSION_UPDATE of note 616732 to adapt the project and WBS element numbers in the project versions involved accordingly.

Please go through these steps, SAP notes and the wiki document (the part about testing this solution first).
