Change LOG activation in Work Order (Object TAB)

Dear All,

could you help me in understanding how to activate the change log in Work order object tab?

I was able to activate the change log for my Work Order type via customizing path

Plant Maintenance & customer service --> Maintenance & service processing --> Maintenance & service order --> Function and settings for orders --> efine change docs........

However some changes are not displayed in our change log (i.e. all the changes in Object 'Tab').

Have you some suggestions to track these changes?

Thank you and



Former Member


Change log will only be updated if 'change documents' has been activated for the Plant and Order type. This is defined at the following customizing path:

SPRO--> Plant Maintenance and Customer Service-- > Maintenance and Service Processing

--> Maintenance and Service Orders--- > Functions and Settings for Order Types--> Define Change Documents, Collective Purchase Requisition, MRP relevance

Note 441323 explains how to activate change documents for fields in IW32.

But some fields do not have the change document flag set in SE11, due to performance reasons.

This is the standard system design.

Best Regards,
