  • User variants lost after upgrade, transport or system copy


  • Release Independent

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Transport a Hierarchy report from Source system to Target system.
  2. The variants were lost.
  3. Since the program name of the report changed when it was regenerated.
  4. The variants can be seen in table VARID - they are linked to the old program name


  1. Function module 'RS_COPY_SELECTION_SETS' can be used to copy variants in target systems
    SOURCE_REPORT: source report name
    TARGET_REPORT: target report name
  3. keep the 'DEVC' and 'CHANGE_ENAME' as default.
  4. The Function module add new variants to the target report.
