    Try some other TIPS


    Logging on without being authorized

    Client 066 usually exists in a SAP system due to EarlyWatch services. Often this client does not have master users. If it is true, anyone can log into the system using the client 066, user SAP*, and password PASS. Enjoy yourself.

    Special copy and paste

    Click on the area and press CTRL+Y. It allows you to copy many lines at once and paste them afterwards.

    Long messages on footer

    Click on the message and hold the mouse button. After moving the mouse to the left side.

    Direct input logs

    The transaction BMV0 (direct input logs) shows all direct input logs.

    Graphics on SAPscript

    The program RSTXLDMC can be used to upload graphics (file extension .tif on PC files) into individual standard text.

    Adding icons

    Check the icon code using transaction ICON. A technical view can be found at the include named «ICON». Sequences of characters begin and finish with the symbol @. Even plain files under operating system can contain those strings.

    Filling up an empty date field quickly

    Strike the key F4 (or click on matchcode symbol) and press ESCAPE. The current date is automaticly set.

    Setting up module FI/CO without using IMG

    Almost all parameters can be set using the transactions ORFA (Asset Accounting), ORFB (Financial Accounting), and ORKS (Cost Center Accounting).

    Displaying check object when not authorized

    Soon after the lock try to access the transaction SU53. It reports the last objects verified and also the respective values.

    Table analyses between two systems

    The contents of a table between two systems can be checked through the transaction OY19.

    Correction and transport system

    The transaction SE10 provides the easiest way to manage any request/transport and corrections
