Hi Experts,

I will explain the procedure for changing released TR into unrelased TR. i.e; modifiable state. There is no option given
explicitly for chaning the released TR into unreleased TR in STMS or SE01 Transactions. we have to follow the below

1. Go to SE38
2. execute the report RDDIT076

3. now, we will get the below screen which asks for TR/Tasks . give the released TR number and execute (F8)

4. Once executed, you will get the below window,

hi Pradeep,

When we release TR then co-file and data-file is created in operating system's file system. The files
contains physical objects that are in TR.
What will happen if I change released TR to unreleased one as per your blog and I will release it
later again? Will files be overwritten or there will be new files? If new ones what name they will have
as name as per convention will be used already by previously created files. Or will 2nd release fail?

Hi Martin,

Thanks a lot for your queries. Actually I forgot to add this in the blog itself. Please proceed
as follow.

Once you changed the TR into modifiable, you can change objects in the TR. you have to
again release the task and TR.However, once we changed the released TR into modifiable,
you can't release the TR again and you will be getting an error "Request <Request ID> has
the invalid attribute EXPTIMESTAMP"

you have to double click on the TR, navigate to the properties tab. enter into edit mode. you
can see "Attribute" column in the screen.
Select the row "EXPORT_TIMESTAMP" and delete that row. save and come back. now you
can release the TR. now the datafile and cofile will be overwritten in OS level with same file

Options seems good, but really not able to understand why all these steps? Just we can go ahead
and make a new TR by including the objects from the transport which does same thing!

Hi Nick,

Thanks for your comment. Yeah these steps only helpful if developer released TR or task
by mistaken but they don't want to create multiple TRs for one development otherwise it is
better to create new TR with same objects .

Hi Nick,

Good point but I think this will be helpful during NOTE implementation or Patch up-
gradation. If the TR is released and we don't want to create another TR then we can follow
this process to make the TR modifiable.

Hi Pradeep,

one more thing: how the unrelease operation of TR would effect SOLMAN in case TR is managed by
SOLMAN? Have you tested this scenario?

Hi Martin,

Sorry, I have not tested the scenario as we are not using solution manager for TR
management. If possible, kindly check and update so that it will be helpful for me and other
readers too.
