  • Dear arghadip kar,

    I appreciated your post and I follow you but let me tell about two observations about the proccess above:

    You’ll need to run a program to delete cache and run another program to reorganize the structure.

    the programs are:

    1. BALVBUFDEL
    2. RFPOSXEXTEND

    • I did not have to do anything like this, Please kindly Check and let me know.

       

      We have to do the program you told only if I add custom field.

       

      Thanks
