Hi all,

I would like to modify the report "Open Items - Vendor Due Date Forecast" created by T. S_ALR_87012084.

With SE93 i found the name of the program RFKOFW00, which are referring to the T. S_ALR_87012084. T. S_ALR_87012084. (Parameter: D_SREPOVARI-REPORT = RFKOFW00) and with SE38 i have seen the ABAP source code of the program RFKOFW00.

My questions are:

1) The ABAP source code of the program RFKOFW00 is written "by hand", or automatically by one of the SAP tools, for example Report Painter/Writer, SAP queryu2026..? It seems to me that it is written "by hand". Is this true?

2) In general, how can i tell if a SAP ABAP program is written "by hand" or automatically by one of SAP tools? I know that one way to understand is that source code, written by hand is more clear.

Is there a way to understand, more accurate, more secure?

Thanks in advance

Serena
