Hi guys,

I searched the forum, Wiki and articles on SDN but couldn´t find a How-To pdf or something else for beginner.

Does somebody has an reference to a good ABAP beginner source which explains a lot?

Thank you in advance!

I recommend a good book (e.g. by SAPPress "Discover ABAP") or the BC400 course by SAP (if the name hasn't changed in the meantime...)

Thanks I read the comments at Amazon. It sounds good.

But any suggestions for sources on SDN?

There is a few links about "getting started with ABAP", you might get lucky while browsing around from this starting point.

Hey there saplaz

The first thing I would suggest is that you get a NetWeaver installation in a VM locally to play with.

Download the latest version here (v7.02 64bit)::

http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/downloads?rid=/library/uuid/1048e401-ab3d-2e10-4d84-b9f27339c54b

Or maybe (v7.01 32 bit):

http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/downloads?rid=/library/uuid/70b58216-00e7-2c10-f6a9-c59f3a351b63

No need to DL MaxDB or another DB separately, it will be included in these two downloads.

Once you have the archive extracted, look under the documentation folder for the index.html... there is also some valuable information about the installation.

Follow this 3 part series on how to install it (this series is for 7.01 though...):
