Adding characteristic to an existing DSO


I need a clarification in adding objects to an existing DSO.

I want to add 2 characteristics one as key field and other one as data field in DSO that is existing. The characteristics are not present in the DSO now.

This DSO in Production system has millions of records in it.

So my questions are

1. Is it possible to add info objects  to the existing DSO?

2. Even if I am able to add, due to millions of records in production systems for this DSO will there be any problem while transports?

We are using BI 7.0

      You can add key fields only in empry DSO.

      Even if you add some data fileds, you have to reload data to fill this field for existing records.

      1) yes its possible to add IO to the existing DSO

      2) There will no be any problem in adding the field and transporting it to production even if the DSO contains millions of records.

      but if business is requesting the historical data for this newly updated key IO then you need to drop the entire data and reload the data.

      if historical data is not needed then you are good to use it once its transported to Production.
