Hello SAP Gurus,

Can anyone tell me the benefits of using SP01 over SPAD or vice verse?

Many thanks,

Hi Jimmy,

SP01 is a user transaction - basically for users to access their spool REQUESTS and view/print them.

SPAD is for administrator - to configure new output devices (printers), etc. Users who need prints will not use this.

The issues seems to belong to basis administrator.

Refer to SAP Documentation on the issue.

Please let me know if you need more information.

Assign points if useful.
