analysing sap transactions

Former Member

Hi all,

I want to develop some abap reports which in most cases are modifications of existing transactions like ( me2l me1p etc.)

but for this first of all i need to know from which tables and which table, the input is taken and what are the fields and tables the output is being displayed..

so for all fields that are interest to me i am taking its technical information.

this works fine in most cases but for some fields it is showing some structures rather than tables.

my question is :-

1. is there any other method / material that i can refer to know about the fields.

2. if the fields are generated using some calculation, is there any document that containing these calculations ?

1. You can perform SQL trace with ST05 to see which table and what fields are relevant..

2. I dont think there is such document

Thanks Sammi for your reply,

i already tried st05 but i did not get what i wanted.

it just showing from which table and which field the data is being taken.

it not even showing what happened to this data i mean is there any modifications...

and also for a transaction like me2l, as it related with many tables the trace will be very large.

and we dunno which field is corresponding to what field in the output.

hope you understood my problem, sorry for my English 😛

You can try to find transparent tables by using the Where Used List for the data element.

i am too held up with the same problem.....

If we use where-used-list, we get certain fields.....

But for certain fields, it says no such field.....
