SLWB transaction

  For translation purposes I wanted to use SLWB transaction, as in step-by-step guide >




We have 2 BW systems :

- one BW 3.1 , where Initial run button is in the application toolbar


-the second, BW 3.5 , where Initial run button is not in the application toolbar


Any other way to choose Initial run (other then that button or Shift + F1- that does not work either )  ?


Any suggestions why the button is missing and how to proceed to Initial run without it?


Thank you.

    Hi Ariana,


    The translation changed as of WebAS SP25 maybe this is the issue.


    There is a link to the translation environment in transaction         

    RSA1 - you need to select your info area, drag and drop it to the     

    right window pane and then click on the Translate button.             

    Depending on your release, the system either takes you directly       

    to transaction SE63 or asks you to enter a piece list, to which       

    the translation relevant objects are written. Should this be the      

    case, you will first have to setup transaction SLWA (once) and then   

    create an object list and run an evaluation in transaction SLWB -     

    the system takes you directly to transaction SLWB. Once you are       

    finished doing this, you can call the objects up in a worklist in     

    transaction SE63. Please have a look at note 585116 - this note points

    you to a location in the SAP Service Marketplace where you can down-  

    load documentation on the second option. 


    Best Regards,
