Cindy -

Creating a new plant by hand, table by table, will not cause any data corruption that I can imagine. The real problem is that no matter how hard you try, you WILL miss something, and what you missed won't be apparent until you run across the broken process that depended on it.

In my opinion, you are much better off either: deciding that you don't actually need a plant - that you can make do with business areas, profit centers, cost centers, or whatever else you might need. Or, create the plant by copying, even though you're not going to take advantage of all of the customizing that you create by doing so. I can almost guarantee (at least in my own experience) that if 'they' tell you it won't be needed ever, the reality is it will be needed as soon as enough time goes by for them to forget the claim that it wasn't. The only thing we can be certain of is change.

Subject: Creating a Plant Manually could Cause Corrupt Tables

I've been told that by creating a plant manually could result in corrupt data.

Is that correct? We need a plant id for our corporate office to track assets. There would be no shipments to/from therefore because it is rather basic I wanted to use ox10 and ox18 and be done. I've been told you can't do that for the above reasons, they you have to use a template.

This is very alarming to me, using delivered screens to create data can cause data corruption.

Can someone please explain this?
