activating new abap editor

Hello,

I am searching for the new abap editor.

I checked other posts in this forum, which described

the following way via transaction SE38 or SE80.

utilities->settings->ABAP editor

and choosing the option front-end editor(new).

I just got the two options front-end editor(old) and

backend editor. How can I activate the new editor?

We are running netweaver 2004s.

Thx a lot.

Regards,

Markus

Welcome to SDN,

What is the version of SAPGUI you are using. i guess it should be atleast was6.40 patch 10

if you dont have the right SAPGUI, you can download the one available in SDN/download area along with NW2004s ABAP sneakpreview. the new editor works with this version of SAPGUI

by the way, the path for enabling the new editor you mentioned is the right one.

Regards

Raja

I am not sure whether it was there in patch 10, but i upgraded to patch14 and activated the new editor from

se38->utilities->settings->ABAP editor

Hello again,

problem was that the patchlevel of sapgui was

too low - after upgrading it, i got the option

to choose the new abap editor.

thx for helping
