Symptoms

Hi,
we have been working with our TAM in the possibility of use decending indexes in our siebel implementation. We have detected that there are a lot of products defects with this funcionality althought we have try it, and it's working. What we did was:

1. Change in Tools the index from ascending to descending
2. Export repository --> customer.dat
3. Modify the ddlsynch.ucf to apply the descending index defined (using /9 option)
4. Import and synchronize the repository.

Everything works fine. Our TAM suggested opening a SR with Support to confirm that it's OK to use the functionality in this way. Could you confirm it?

Thanks,

Cause
