here's a quick 1-2-3 Go!

1. Take a hardcopy of your source code.

2. Send it to Santa@NorthPole.com for 'COLD' Storage.

3. Delete your Program

And I bet your souce code is hidden once & for all..

Excellent Suresh. Love that idea.

Seriously, hiding source code is not suggested. I know of some cases where developers were fired for it, so to relieve responsbility for you getting fired, I will of course not say how, but merely say that it is possible.

Hi,

Check the following program:

report zsam_hide no standard page heading.

************************************************************************

  • This program hides any ABAP's source code and protects it with a

  • password in this source code.

*

  • After hiding, you can still run the abap (the load version is intact)

  • but it cannot be displayed, edited, traced, transported or generated.

*

  • If the ABAP is not hidden, the program hides it, if it is hidden, it

  • unhide it.

  • Remember to hide this program first!

************************************************************************

selection-screen begin of block block.

parameters: program(30) obligatory.

selection-screen begin of line.

selection-screen comment 1(8) pwd.

selection-screen position 35.

parameters: password(8) modif id aaa.

selection-screen end of line.

selection-screen end of block block.

*

data: message(60) type c.

*

at selection-screen output.

loop at screen.

if screen-group1 = 'AAA'.

screen-invisible = '1'.

modify screen.

endif.

endloop.

*

initialization.

pwd = 'Password'.

*

start-of-selection.

tables: trdir.

  • User name and password check

if password <> 'ABCDEFG'.

write: / 'Wrong password'.

exit.

endif.

  • SAP owned?

if not program cp 'Z' and not program cp 'Y'.

write: / 'Do not hide original SAP programs!'.

exit.

endif.

  • Exists?

select single * from trdir where name = program.

if sy-subrc <> 0.

write: / 'Program does not exists!'.

exit.

endif.

  • Does it have a current generated version?

data: f1 type d, f3 type d.

data: f2 type t, f4 type t.

EXEC SQL.

SELECT UDAT, UTIME, SDAT, STIME INTO :F1, :F2, :F3, :F4 FROM D010LINF

WHERE PROG = :PROGRAM

ENDEXEC.

if f1 < f3 or ( f1 = f3 and f2 < f4 ).

write: / 'The program has no recent generated version!'.

exit.

endif.

  • Compose a new program name

data: new_name(30), i type i, j type i.

new_name = program.

do 30 times.

i = sy-index - 1.

new_name+i(1) = '_'.

  • Search for acceptable program name variations

j = 0.

select * from trdir where name like new_name.

j = j + 1.

endselect.

if j = 1.

exit.

endif.

new_name = program.

enddo.

  • Cannot generate appropriate program name

if j > 1.

write: / 'Cannot generate appropriate program name'.

exit.

endif.

  • Check if it is already hidden

data: f5(30).

EXEC SQL.

SELECT PROG INTO :F5 FROM D010S WHERE PROG = :NEW_NAME

ENDEXEC.

if f5 is initial.

  • There is no such hidden program, hide it

EXEC SQL.

UPDATE D010S SET PROG = :NEW_NAME WHERE PROG = :PROGRAM

ENDEXEC.

concatenate 'Program' :program 'was hidden.'

into message separated by space.

else.

  • There is already a hidden program there, unhide it

EXEC SQL.

UPDATE D010S SET PROG = :PROGRAM WHERE PROG = :NEW_NAME

ENDEXEC.

concatenate 'Program' :program 'was restored.'

into message separated by space.

endif.

write message.

      • end of program
