Extension Index in SAP

Hello Experts,

I have a requirement to create secondary index on VBPA for fields PARVW and KUNNR. In VBPA i could see an extension index already available. The status of the index is new and there is a warning that says Index does not exist in MSSQL. Is it possible to activate this index and will it improve the performance if activated?

Please help.

Look better at SE11 on the index...

Check Switch ISM_MEDIA_BASIS_MODIF activation status.

if switch activated


  • Transactions SE11, SE14 or DB02 wont have any effect (Read the activation log if you already tried)
  • Create you own index in your namespace (like VBPA~Z01) (but activate in production outside of peak hours)
