    Hi John,


    You will find how to change the logo doing the following:
      Logon into your system   > Extras   > Administration information

    There you will find that in order to change the logo in the right-hand
    side of the initial screen you must do the following:
    1. Put your picture in the database with the transaction SMW0
        "Binary data" options, e.g. in ".GIF" format.
    2. Put a record with the picture name in the key "START_IMAGE" of
        the table SSM_CUST in the View maintenance transaction SM30.
    3. You can adjust the picture to the window size automatically or
        center it in the right-hand side of the initial screen
        ("RESIZE_IMAGE" "YES" or "NO" in the table SSM_CUST).
    4. You can deactivate the picture globally so that nobody sees it
        with "HIDE_START_IMAGE" "YES" in the table SSM_CUST.
        User-specific picture display settings are then ignored.


    And also please refer the note specified below

    Thank You.
