<u>USER EXITS-></u>

1. Introduction:

User exits (Function module exits) are exits developed by SAP.

The exit is implementerd as a call to a functionmodule.

The code for the function module is writeen by the developer.

You are not writing the code directly in the function module,

but in the include that is implemented in the function module.

The naming standard of function modules for functionmodule exits is:

EXIT_<program name><3 digit suffix>

The call to a functionmodule exit is implemented as:

CALL CUSTOMER.-FUNCTION ❤️ digit suffix>

<u>OSS NOTES</u>

Go to with a S user id that

you might have and then you type the NOTE number that you have and look at the details of the note.

<u>what are the different types of performance techniques?</u>

User exits are special includes provided by SAP where customer can write his own code and get it executed.

Yes we can modify the SAP standard code by gettnig an access key from SAP. You should avoid this and use the enhancement options instead.

OSS note's are released by SAP either to guide the customer or to provide immediate fix to the customer which will later be part of an support pack.
