Hi,

SAP Notes give you instructions on how to remove known errors from SAP Systems. They include a description of the symptoms, the cause of the error, and the SAP Release and Support Package level in which the error occurs.

Depending on the type of error, an SAP Note may also include:

• Workarounds

• Descriptions of how to correct the source code (called correction instructions)

• Links to Support Packages that solve the problem

You can access SAP Notes both from the SAP Service Marketplace and SAP Net - R/3 Frontend.

The Note Assistant can automatically implement only SAP Notes that have correction instructions.

Read the SAP Note carefully before you use the Note Assistant to implement it. The SAP Note can contain prerequisites, interactions, and references to postprocessing activities (making changes to a table, for example) that you must take into consideration when you implement it.

For more details go thru this link

hi vijaya,

OSS notes are used by SAP to issue corrections to known bugs to the application/system.

If you experience problems with the way SAP is working you can search OSS notes to see if the problem you are having is known to SAP. If it is then you can implement the fix (usually through code corrections) that SAP have provided.

http://service.sap.com ( Then Sap Note search )

OSS note ( for Online Service ), this is a support service on SAP R/3.

This is a DB of correction or improvement you can find using key words.

hi Vijaya Lakshmi,

Whenever an organization is implementing any of the SAP products, and if there is any problem with the standard functionality provided by SAP or if during internal testing is done by SAP for the particular product and a bug is found, or for any step by step implementation, SAP comes up with SAP notes.

You can see the notes when you access http://service.sap.com. You can search SAP notes based on the key word search where you can give the error message what you get or anything like that.

In the SAP note, the general symptom that is observed as a bug/correction is given and you can decide whether its covered under the module which is getting implemented by your team and decide whether this SAP note has to be implemented or not.

Regards,

Santosh
