Menu enhancements allow customers to link their own processes to menu options. For this purpose, SAP has reserved certain menu options so that customers can define their own text and react to user selections in function exits.

When the enhancement is included in a project and activated by the customer, menu enhancements are visible in the transaction. If the user chooses this menu option, either the function provided by the applications developer is executed, or the system branches to a function exit and the customer's own function is executed.

Ex : For SE38 transaction in the initial screen we have in the UTILITIES menu ‘+CUS’ which is under the enhancement SEU00002 for which a menu-exit can be created by including it in a project.

Follow these steps to create menu exit:

1) goto tcode - CMOD

2) create a project

3) Enter the short text and select Enhancement assignment

from the menu or Application Tool Bar

4) Enter the Enhancement Name and save the project.

Note : at any particular point any enhancement can belong to only one Project

5) Select the components from the menu or Application toolbar to view the Exits associated with it

6) Double Click on the function module name

(program exit or Function exit ) for enhancing the code

7) Double click on the include and write your code there.

these includes start with 'ZX'. When we create a include, it throws a warning message saying that ZX includes are reserved for exits.

😎 Write Your code here and go back to the Components screen

9)Double click on the function code of the Menu exit enhancement

10)Write your Function text here this is what appears to you in your Menu, and say copy. (create a transport request if required)

11) Go back to the initial screen of ‘CMOD’ transaction and activate the project

SAP creates menu exits by defining special menu items in the Menu Painter. These special entries have function codes that begin with "+" (a plus sign). You specify the menu item’s text when activating the item in an add-on project.
