Using the SQL Trace, find out which index (if any) is being used. Index 4 on BKPF is AWTYP, AWKEY, and AWSYS. If you specify all these values, then the database read may use this index. It seems likely, however, that it will be using the primary index. One way around this will be to use database hints, as suggested in OSS Note: 129385. This site gives excellent advice on the use of hints. http://www.intelligenterp.com/columns/archive/abap4.jhtml
