The ways to editing tables

Here are listed powerful hacks which can be used to change even the standard tables and even in a production environment (if you have CHANGE access in Debugger). You should think twice before using them.
You can track changes made in SE16N by &SAP_EDIT (GD-SAPEDIT) option in SE16N_CD_KEY table.
With a right authorization concept in place you would not be allowed to debug in production. So end users should be restricted with debugging authorizations.

1. Go to SE16N, type the table name, turn on the debugger (type /H in the command field), press F8. In the debugger set the values of GD-EDIT and GD-SAPEDIT to ‚X‘ and press F8.
2. Execute the function module SE16N_INTERFACE. Set parameters i_tab to table name and i_edit to ‚X‘ and press F8.
3. Carry out the transaction UASE16N (obsolete, but sometimes still in use). Type &SAP_EDIT in the command field.

Working with the Material Master Data

In the SAP MM module, material master data refers to all the material master records that are stored in the system. In other words, material master data consists of the description of all the materials that an organization not only purchases but also produces and keeps in its stock. The material master data acts as a central database of information for the materials in an organization.

Maintaining the details of all the materials at a central location not only minimizes the risk of data redundancy but also allows other departments of the organization to share this data among themselves. The other departments of the organization can use the material master data to perform various tasks, such as invoice verification and inventory management. The material master record is used by different departments of an organization, and each department requires different information about the material. For example, the purchasing department might require only the price of the material to perform price control functions; whereas, the sales department might require the sales data to prepare the sales graph of a given period of time.

To facilitate locating the relevant data, various fields have been provided in the Create Material (Initial Screen). Every department can easily locate and access the data required by it by entering the relevant details in these fields.

What are Enjoy transactions in SAP?


An enjoy transaction is one that was released with the release, which is also know as the „Enjoy“ release.
Enjoy transactions are the new transactions (from rel. 4.6A, which is nearly 10 years old now) were created to „make life easier“ for the endusers and performs all the operations performed by its classical counterpart in one screen only. All clickable elements have 3D qualities, while the input and output fields remain 2D for simplified reading.
A lot of transactions have been rewritten to use the new control framework. All Enjoy transactions are having ‚N‘ character at the suffix of the transaction (ME21N, VL02N etc). These transactions „replaced“ older transactions. The sap enjoy transactions typically are much more user friendly in appearance, support custom controls, ALV tree and ALV grids, docking containers, node structures, picture controls in them. But transactions ending with „N“ doesn’t qualify them as eNjoy. May be „N“ was used to indicate „New“, SE43 & SE43N – neither of them are eNjoy transactions.


As example described data can be found in the t-code ME21N (completely writting in OOPS ABAP). The old ME21 transaction uses the classic dynpro technology without using the control framework.
Enjoy sap controls are containers that can built dunamically using objects/classes. In general batch input is not possible for those screens. The SAP material BC412 contains all about this. It’s all about ABAP Screen programming.

Today the term „Enjoy“ is not common anymore.

„SAP software works the way I do.“

What Is Outline and Scheduling Agreement

Please give the difference between Purchase Order, Outline Agreement
and Scheduling Agreement.

PO is normal where you issue the PO to a vendor and expect the delivery.
The PO is termed completed when the vendor has delivered the PO quantity
or when you have preclosed the PO when the vendor has delivered partial
quantity and he has agreed not to send anymore with ref to the PO.

Outline Agreement can be of 2 types:- Contract and SA.

Contract is where you have a contract with the vendor,may be a for a
predetermined quantity or predefined value. So everytime you need the matl,
you need to make PO ref the contract asking for the delivery of the matl.
In such instance when PO is ref with contract its called contract release
orders or call off orders.

Scheduling agreement is a long term purchase agreement, where you will
keep issuing the delivery schedules whenever there is a change in requirement
or at predetermined time intervals. The delivery schedule can be on hour/daily/weekly/monthly
basis. But it will contain different zones viz. firm/tradeoff/Forecast.
Firm zone schedules are confirmed requirement and need to be taken by ordered
party. Tradeoff zone requirement is to purchase the raw materails and ordering
party is liable to pay raw material cost, in case of requirement cancellation.
Forecast zone requirement is to help the vendor to plan his requirements.

SA is also an agreement with the vendor for the supply of matl, may
be a quanity or value. The delivery dates will be maintained in ME38 ref
the SA which are called delivery schedules.So you can maintain the delivery
schedule and communicate the vendor on Forecase basis or JIT basis. And
when you need some more matl then will only create SA deliveries using
ME38. SA could be of 2 types:- without release documentation-system will
transmit the delivery info to the vendor once you save the document.

With release documentation- after creating the delivery schedules you
need to create SA release using ME84.

The main difference between contract and SA is volume of docs generated
would be higher in contract since everytime you need to make a PO ref the
contract and its time consuming, whereas SA can be integrated with MRP
such that it automatically creates delivery schedules during MRP run provided
if there is a requirement to the matl.

Error SSFCOMPOSER 152 solution

Last week we have found an error in our Z-Smartform, which says nothing except „SSFCOMPOSER 152: Events are already defined.“
It didn’t say what data related to the error, or even which part of the smartform acted wrong.

After a bit debugging we’ve found the module with the proper position for a breakpoint:

1. Open SE80 and „Function groups“ inside it.
2. Functional group STXBC.
3. Open the subroutines folder.
4. Set a breakpoint in ERR_WRITE routine.

Now, carry out the smartform and we will get all the data related to the error with all the parameters.
