Repeating SAP Canceled Updates



Share this article :

When updates with the status Error are listed in the Update Requests screen, it is not sufficient simply to correct the error that caused the premature cancelation. You have to repeat the canceled update, otherwise the change is not recorded in the database. To repeat canceled updates, proceed as follows:

1. Display the canceled updates. To do this, execute transaction SM13. Select All, and specify a date and time prior to when the error occurred. You now have to repeat processing for the update records that have the status Error, or are from the specified time period and are “stuck” in status init, started, auto, or run.

2. Repeat each canceled update. To do this, proceed according to the status of the update record:

Records with the status
Error: select each of the updates in turn, and choose Update request > Repeat update for each update. Update requests for which a repeated update cannot be performed are identified by the symbol stop in the Info column. In such cases, the system automatically terminates the repeat update. Potential causes are:
– Update is performed by batch input. This is shown by the symbol log in the Info column. In such cases, use the Batch Input Manager to repeat the canceled transaction, and then delete the update request.
– The update could result in data inconsistency. In this case, you have to extract the data from the update.
– Enter the data using the relevant transaction.

• Records with the status
init: select each of the updates in turn, and choose Update request > Repeat update for each update. Only do this for “stuck” records from the time the problem occurred. Normally, records with the status init are automatically updated!

• Records with the status
started or auto: in exceptional cases, updates can “get stuck“, in other words, they remain in an active state, and a (repeat) update cannot then be performed. In such cases, you can reset the status to enable the update to be carried out. First, check your update server using the Process Overview function (transaction SM50), to ensure that the update is not running in one of the update work processes. Once you have performed a reset, the status of the update record returns to init and the record can either be updated automatically, or as described above. There are update records for which a repeat update is not possible. This is indicated by the symbol stop in the Info column. This is the case if the records contain one or more update modules of the type V1 repeat update not possible.

3. Extract the data from all canceled updates that cannot be repeated. You have to re-enter these updates manually.

4. Delete all canceled updates that cannot be repeated. To do this, choose Update requests > Delete.
