        Hi Shrivastava, we appreciate your efforts to deliver valuable content to this community and it is not my intention to stop or demotivate you doing so. We are glad when our partners and customers contribute to SCN Documentation, because, in the end, it also makes our work easier.

        However, information you have posted here, and also more thoroughly, you can also find in SAP online documentation here: http://help.sap.com/saphelp_46c/helpdata/en/8e/e464b20437d1118b3f0060b03ca329/frameset.htm

        Further, the same information you posted here, you will find in TRM customizing documentation in a system itself (transaction SPRO).

        We think that it is contraproductive for the quality of this forum to multiply already provided documentation from other available sources.

        So please, check not only SCN forum, but also other resources, before you decide to share some content here.

        Nonetheless, we wish you great progress in your work with TRM and more postings in SCN with new content for our little community.

        Best regards,

        Tomislav
