Well, we all would have learnt of the note 1947530 which fixes the issue of double line entry creation of the PDS during the CIF in case the ‘validity from’ date of the production version is changed to the past of its currently maintained date.
But again, this note is just not enough! You will still face the problem in case you shift your validity of the production version completely away from any of the dates within its validity range.In simple words, if the new ‘valid from’ > old ‘valid to’ of a production version; you have the issue again in APO 😯
For fixing this issue, SAP has released one more note 2042931 which can be implemented.
But the problem still remains! How about the already created double PDS cases? The issue was caused by SAP code and hence they have to rectify these cases.
The note 1453522 comes to your rescue in this case – it has a clear explanation on the functionality of the report 🙂
