      Arigato gozaimasu for your blog Kazuhisa. Very instructive, well detailed and useful.

      For the technical guys it is interesting to see how Append is added automatically to table KNVV. I got it without editing the table with SE11.

      I also wanted to comment that the extra field is added automatically to the data migration cockpit file template without manual intervention with LTMOM (data migration modeller):

      and also the the data migration modeller has new field:

      Hi, Kazuhisa-san,

      that's a nice example.

      I have a similar scenario, but I need the field to be inserted in the BUT000 table. is this possible ?

      Timing on this is great because I had a similar question.  Let's say I want to add a field that would be relevant for the Customer and Vendor.  I could add it to BUT000  (as you have shown) but I want these fields to also be copied to KNA1 (customer general view not sales view) and LFA1 (vendor general view) for use in logistics transactions.  Can I assign the same field to three Business Contexts (Business Partner Core View, Customer Core View and Vendor Core View) or do I need to create 3 fields with the same type and do some sort of value mapping?

      Hello Sean,

      I assume that you can add same field to KUNA1 and LFA1 by using append method manually. And manually you have to develop addon program for copying from BUT000 to both table.

      I recommend read the custom field in BUT000 instead of copying KNA1 and LFA1. Because there is no screen for KNA1 and LFA1 on the Fiori Apps and difficult to treat them.

      Best regards, Kaz

      Hello Kazuhisha,

      great blog - thanks!

      I'm currently strugeling with a different scenarion - I enhanced the business partner on ECC with a additional customer table via EEWB to store multiple customer specific records per business partner - this worked great, it generated all relevant function modules and customizing for BDT.

      Now I need a similar feature for S/4 but EEWB is not supported anymore. Is there a mechanism in the extensibility tool for such a requirement?

      Best regards,

      Hi Kazuhisa,

      Does adding custom fields via CFL adds it at GUI (Screen) level also?
