Strange values for field USR02-UFLAG
You may observe strange values for field UFLAG within table USR02, this is a quite recurrent problem…
Situations like this one are most likely caused by direct access to the table with database tools, improper handling of database entries, for example: through custom programs (that might set values to this field directly in database level); it’s also possible that the values have been set in debugging mode and were not adjusted afterwards by the author of this modification.
To address this situation and advice on how to identify the root cause of this issue, I have release an article that is availble in the below link:

Feel free to share your thoughts on that matter.
Hope this helps you!
